no way around this.the vehicle will not start without proper signal from pats key.if your using the same keys you always use there must be a problem with the passive antitheft system.but if you or someone else have attemped to start the vehicle with a key that is not programed to this vehicle the antitheft will kick in and you might have to have get your vehicle scanned and the keys reprogramed.you could try disconnecting the battery for at least 10 min this will clear the memory,then try to start.if still does not start there is a problem with antitheft.

What you need to do it un lock you doors from the in side. so push lock and then un lock from the in side. Then you should have no problems.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

Did you steal it? I heard about you thieves who steal cars then put new transmissions in!!
Seriously, try this, it may help...
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded) until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once. (Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.) This should reset the alarm, and reset the grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine. At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way. Just Repeat these steps to place it back to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it, and the lights may flash twice as well. That should do it. Check out www.explorerforum.com
