If the security system is at fault, the security light should be flashing or staying on.
Do the warning lights come on the dash when you turn the key on ? Can you jumper the starter relay and make it crank ?

Do you have a key with a resister in it? If you do then all you have to do is measure the resistance of the key and jump the wiring with the same resistance

the anti-theft has been activated and needs to be reset.you may have to get it to a shop that has the tools to do this or go to the dealer to get it done.did you use a key that was cut as a spare and doesn`t have a chip in it.this usually can cause this.also if the wires at the switch break it can activate the anti-theft system.

I have a 2008 ford ranger xlt 4x4 4.0 . changed the motor and the battery was disconnected . now the truck will not start cause the anti theft is locked what do i do ???


Ensure you have "ALL" the wires connected and a fully charged battery. Then use your remote to turn off the anti theft devises and your truck should start with no problems. You may have to switch the anti theft device from your old engine to your new one or take the vin of the new engine to the dealer and get the code for that engine.

Anti theft bypass on 99 ford ranger??????


Technically, you can't bypass it. Neither can the car thieves.
The security module is built into the instrument cluster and it "talks" to the engine computer. The two components have to be sync-ed with the key codes.
You may be able to hot-wire the coil and fuel pump but I doubt the injectors will work since the computer will be out of service.
Usually a dealer has to reprogram the cluster and computer with the new key code.

Bypassing anti theft on ford explorer


When i changed ignition on my 99 explorer i took the original key and taped it to the transponder receiver inside steering column. If u have it in the correct area u can use your new ignition and it will start without any programming hassle.. Also way cheaper to get other keys made!!
