SOURCE: 1998 ford expedition that won't start. it cranks,

The theft light blinking indicates a PATS (perimeter anti-theft concern.It means that the computer has not recieved a signal from your key when trying to start the vehicle. A few things could be wrong.
1...The key you are using to start the vehicle is not programmed to the vehicle or broken internally. So try a different key(one that you know is programmed to the vehicle) if you have more than 1. If the theft light goes on and flashes when you try to start the vehicle, you must wait about 5 minutes before trying the second key because the computer goes into antiscan or theft mode and wont let any keys start the vehicle.
2... There is a small transciever ring located arount the key cylinder which recieves the key signal. The wiring for the tranciever runs down the steering column into the dashboard wiring. Sometimes these wires break. If you have a tilt steering wheel, move it all the way down and try to start, then try moving it all the way up and try to start. Keep in mind the antiscan that I mentioned in #1. If this works then you need to check the wiring at the base of the steering column. A white connector with 4 wires. Pull on each wire to see if any are broken.
3... Check fuse #30 on interior fuse panel. If it is blown then you will have to trace down the cause of the short. The ignition coils are on this fuse also so one could be shorted. Disconnect all ignition coils(you may have 8 located on each plug if 5.4l engine or 2 located on l+r front of engine if 4.6l engine) and see if the short is gone. If the short is still present disconnect the radio noise supression capacitors( small black box approx 1" x 1" square with a single wire coming out) that are located on the left and right front of the engine. Pay close attention to all the wiring around the coils, look for any areas that may have rubbed thru and shorted.
These are things that I would look for first and are the most likely causes. This should get you started in the right direction. Be patient and post your findings if you fix it or not.
Good luck

2002 mercury cougar starts once then stalls. Wont start just cranks. I have spark and can hear fuel pump come on.


Probably something with the PATS system , Passive anti theft system. Is there a red light in the middle of you dash that flashes fast when you try to start the car. Or is there a security light lit on you instrument cluster ? If you have a problem with PATS the engine computer will turn off fuel injectors in some cases !

Try leaving the key in on for 10-15 minutes. If the blinking theft light stops blinking and goes out, it has reset. Turn key to off, and then try to start it.

The impeller on the fuel pump may be getting stuck or a fuel pump relay. Also check the anti-theft light, if it is blinking really fast while cranking your key may need to be reprogrammed

It turn but will not start


Could be fuel pump. If you hear the pump in the rear of the car turn on and then quit you may have a theft system problem. Check on the dash for the theft system indicator. If it is blinking when you try to start the car that is the problem. Close all doors and turn key to On for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and disappears. then try to start car.
