94ford probe won't start

Well Sandra , the thing to do would be to get it to turn the engine over with the key , Then diagnose the no start problem . Look at a wiring diagram (do you know what that is ?) When you turn the key to start , the electrical part of the ignition switch sends B+ voltage to the starter interrupter relay through the clutch switch to the starter motor solenoid . Testing the electrical circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter with the help of a wiring diagram ,so you know where to test is the proper way to diagnose the problem . Not guessing ,an rigging the stuff . You can find free wiring diagrams here
Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine ! Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click starting . Click the search button then the third blue link .

Hook up your battery charger, turn the key to the on position for like an hour or two to relearn the key. I have seen this take up to three or four hours (hence the need for a battery charger) if still doesn't work check the purple wire from the ignition switch (prob should check this first) it's the key transponder wire, may have gotten damaged by the a-hole who tried to thieve your car! If these things are ok and the key wont program you'll have to get a new key made (locksmith cheaper than dealer usually)

Someone tried to steal my 2003 dodge durango and messed up the ignition but it starts for 5 seconds

The vehicle isnt reading the chip in the key. Your best bet is to take it to a professional. This is common if a valet key is used. Make sure you are using the correct key.

Someone tried to steal my 2000 ford mustang, they messed up with ignition switch, the locksmith put a new ignition lock with new key, but was not able to program the new key, the theft light blinks...

Disconnect battery for at least 2 hours.
Hold negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes.
PUT KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not turned on.
Connect POSITIVE lead.
Connect negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for chip in ignition switch and chip in the key to be recognised by the ECM.
Start the vehicle.

What can i do to start my car? if someone tryed stealing my car? didn't get it but nw my car won't start. what can be done about this problem

Hello, Many times a fuel safety feature called an "Inertia sensor" will activate when a door or the trunk lid is closed hard enough to trip this sensor. You should find the sensor in the trunk on the Drivers' side of the car. The switch will be behind the carpeting and all you need to do is press a button on the switch to reset it. After doing that, your car should start if that was the problem.

If someone tried to use the wrong car key from another Ford product, then this can mess up the Security codes in the Anti-theft system. Should someone have tried to use the wrong key, you will need to tow the car to a Dealer for a reboot of the Security system.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.
