Anti theft device for 1997 ford expedition

My car wont start and my anti theft light blinks fast when I turn the ignition. How can I reset it? 1997 Ford Expedition. Drove it to store & back, worked fine. Went to start again & wouldn't. Anti-theft light blinking. Had locksmith come out & reprogram master key. Still wouldn't work. Locksmith said something wrong with either ECC or PATS System. Mechanic has checked it and not sure. Wants approval for 4 more hours of diagnostic to figure. Wouldn't mind just disabling anti-theft system, but they won't do it.

If you have a key fob to lock your doors you can do the following, insert key into ignition, turn it on to acc and off a total of 8 times quicklyyour doors will lock and unlock and reset system, but you have to push the disarm button on your key after for it to work. If no key fob, then you will need to have someone with a code scanner completely reset your ECC. I hope this works for you,

Theft light blinking and car wont turn over


Your theft deterrent system is activated. Did you have a key made?

Anti theft won't reset. Battery won't charge. Tries to start on it's own.


The system may be activating because there is not enough power in the battery?
Check the batter connections and power cables.
Are the posts clean and tight.
Are the cables going to the battery, alternator and starter in good condition. Check to see if the insulation on the cables have not worn away some ware along the cables and shorting out.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

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.

Anti-Theft


Do your locks work on the SUV? Somethings the locks can set the anti theft off. But if your locks work then that means your the chip in the key is bad or its not reading the key at all. More than likely you will have to get a new key and have it reprogrammed. Dealer is the only place to get the key.
