HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: theft light blinking/car won!t start

If you have key numbers on the door, you should enter the code, then immediately start the truck. If this does not work contact the dealer for a sequence to reset the alarm.

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.

Truck won't start anti theft light blinks faster than normal


Sounds like your anti theft engaged with the wrong key or the chip did not activate properly in you key. You can probably reset this by disconnecting the negative side of the battery for thirty seconds and trying again.

I changed the starter with new as old one was not turning. After replacing new starter my truck does not crank and start, Please help me to start my Truck. Anti theft light is blinking all the time.


You solved your own problem.
The anti-theft system is probably keeping it from starting.
Get the system checked out and you may find the problem is the chip in the key.

How do I disarm anti theft device on a 2001 ford taurus


SEE THE STEPS WITH CAREFULLY AND COMMON SENSE:God bless you
Press the unlock button on your vehicle's key fob to deactivate the alarm. If you've misplaced your remote for the car, use the PATS programmed key to unlock the driver's side door. Then, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. The vehicle's battery should be on, but the engine shouldn't be running.

  • 2 Locate the override button on the alarm box, beneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Press the button and hold it in until the alarm beeps one time. The LED light for the alarm should stop blinking, indicating the anti-theft system is disabled.

  • 3 To reset the vehicle's alarm, put the PATS programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. Press the override button. When the alarm resets, it chirps two times and the LED light begins blinking.

    The alarm system has activated and we cannot disarm the system via the Remote Key Fob or by key at the doors or hatchback. Tried disconnecting battery same problem. When the doors open the system...


    Hi Edward:
    In dashboard, your THEFT warning light is blinking? If the answer is yes, your antotheft system is activated and will need restart and resynchonized. This occurs when battery is disconneting or other un-authorized key is used.

    Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) are protected from vehicle theft andunauthorized entry. VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made toenter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights andparking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

    VTSS system arms when ignition is off, vehicle is exited, door is locked using power door locks and door isclosed. Alternatively a remote keyless entry transmitter can be used to arm system. A security light on panelwill flash for 15 seconds to indicate system is arming. At the end of 15 seconds, if no door, hood or tailgate isopened, system is armed.

    If alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes, and lights will flash for an additional 15 minutes. If hornsounds 3 times when either front door is unlocked, vehicle has been tampered with (tamper alert). If doors arelocked manually or with key, system will not arm (manual override). If an unauthorized entry does occur, VTSSsystem signals Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to prevent vehicle from being driven. PCM reduces injectorpulse width to zero, causing a start and stall condition.

    System can be disarmed with the keyless entry transmitter, or by using key to enter vehicle. In both instances, if alarm was activated, vehicle alarm will be terminated. If battery is disconnected and reconnected, alarm will beactivated and it will be necessary to disarm system as indicated.

    Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode


    anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

    try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

    Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
    • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
    • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
    • hood switch
    • keyless entry remote transmitter
    • deck lid ajar switch
    NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
    Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
    The keyless entry remote transmitters :
    • Are programmable.
    • Must be set at the same time.
    • House four buttons.
    • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
    Programming
    Refer to Section 501-14B.
    Inputs and Outputs
    The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
    • Hood switch.
    • Deck lid ajar switch.
    • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
    • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
    • Door courtesy input.
    The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
    • Power door unlock relay.
    • Power door lock relay.
    • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
    • Park lamps relay.
    • HORN relay.
    • Dome lamp.
    • THEFT indicator.
    • Deck lid release.
    Arming
    The anti-theft system can be armed if:
    • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
    • The panic alarm is off.
    • All doors are closed.
    NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
    NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
    The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
    When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
    Disarming
    NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
    Untriggered System
    NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
    An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
    Triggered System
    NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
    An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
    The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
    • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
    A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
    • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
    • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
    Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
    When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

    Replaced the alternator, now anti theft won't disable


    The ignition lock anti-theft switch (19A438) detects if the ignition key cylinder is broken or "slam pulled" during a theft. The ignition lock anti-theft switch is always monitored by the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module. This allows the alarm system to be triggered in the case that the ignition lock anti-theft switch detects tampering of the ignition key cylinder (even in the event that the alarm is not active at the time).
    Refer to the Section 501-14B for more details on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
    The door open warning lamp switch (14018) communicates to the RAP module through the generic electronic module (GEM). This input to the RAP will cause the anti-theft alarm to be sounded if the anti-theft alarm was armed.
    The door disarm switches are assembled into both LH and RH lock sets. The door disarm switch must be triggered before the mechanical lock unlocks. This is to prevent the anti-theft alarm from activating when it should have been disarmed.
    The RAP module controls the anti-theft system and is the brains of the keyless entry system. The RAP module communicates with the GEM to request that the interior lights be turned ON/OFF with use of the keyless entry remote transmitter, and the GEM communicates to the RAP to inform when the door is opened. Refer to Section 418-00 for inter-module communication.
    The RAP module has three wire connectors attached to it:
    • The antenna for the keyless entry remote transmitter.
    • 26 circuit connector (C256).
    • 22 circuit connector (C257).
    In addition to the perimeter alarm that uses the door open warning lamp switch, the RAP module also uses the ignition lock anti-theft switch and the autolock/relock feature to prevent theft of the vehicle. For a full description of the autolock/relock system, refer to Section 501-14B .
    The THEFT LED is found on the instrument panel between the tachometer scale and the needle pivot point. The LED is illuminated during prearming and flashes when armed or triggered.
    Prearming and Arming the System
    The system can be armed if:
    • The ignition is OFF.
    • The PANIC alarm is OFF.
    • All doors are closed.
    There are two ways to prearm the system:
    • Press the LOCK button on the transmitter.
    • Open a door, press the power door lock button and close the door.
    After 30 seconds the system will be armed and the theft indicator in the cluster will flash every two seconds.
    Disarming an Untriggered System
    An armed system will be disarmed with one of these valid actions:
    1. Pressing the UNLOCK button on the transmitter.
    1. Placing a key in the door and turning to UNLOCK.
    1. Turning the key to RUN or ACC.
    The anti-theft alarm can be triggered by the following conditions:
    • The ignition cylinder is damaged with or without the RAP being armed.
    • A door is opened without disarming the armed RAP module.
    The remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to an anti-theft alarm, but does not deactivate the starter or cause the theft indicator to flash.
    Disarming a Triggered System
    If the system has been triggered, (the horn honks, the lights flash, and an external starter interrupt relay is engaged), the system can be disarmed by:
    1. Pressing the UNLOCK or PANIC button on the transmitter.
    1. Putting a key in the door and unlocking the door.
    1. Turning the ignition to RUN/ACC (Turning the key to RUN/ACC will not disarm an alarm that has been triggered by the ignition lock anti-theft switch.).

    Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?


    Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.
