The engine light has been an indication you may have a "battery charging problem"...This could be a bad battery, bad alternator, or just dirty battery post connections (or loose) Try the cleaning and tightening of the posts first...(least costly) dirty posts will allow the lights etc to work, but do not allow the full current needed to turn the starter...Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

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

Sounds like you need a starter, or you have a loose wire somewhere under the hood.

first of all, check your code to see what the car computer shows. To do that , insert the key in the ignition and switch it on three time within 2 seconds and the third time live the key in the on position. All the instrument panel lights will lite and the oddometer will display the fault code that may br the cause for your car not starting. goood luck.

It sounds like this could be an immobilizer problem, if the red alarm LED is permanently on when you have the ignition is on this is defiantly the problem. You will need to get the key/fob reprogrammed to overcome this.

Sounds like the wires may not be hooked correctly on the starter; maybe one was left off. Or you may have blown the fuseable link in the cable. Check all the connections to verify they are correct, then verify there is power reaching the starter to verify the fuseable link isn't blown.

Opel astra twinport 1.6 2006 Z16XE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START


Hi, Have a diagnostic scan done and also a mechanical error trace ,
the solution to the problem could be the CKP crankshaft position sensor or a wiring related issue, it could also be the fuel pump , the pump relay , engine management actuator . In order for your engine to start it requires the following:
Compression
Fuel pressure and volume
A proper spark
Correct valve timing and ignition timing
A decent battery vitally important as all engine management relies on it.
Hope this helps a bit
Regards Higgins.
