This is probably a dumb question - does your car have a chip key ?? and are you using a "cut" key to start it ??

Why won't it start?

since the radio is resetting, i would first check the battery terminals. the radio has to power inputs, so if its resetting then your losing both at the same time. one wire more or less comes directly from battery, its the memory wire to get a presets and times.

2001 mustang 3.8 no spark. an no power to crank sensor, is there a fuse for the crank sersor?

No there is not a fuse to the crank sensor, and if you were checking for voltage at the crank sensor ,you should see more than 1 volt but less than two volts at the crank sensor positive circuit which is the Dark blue wire, the crank sensor is a hall effect type sensor which generates its own voltage, It would be very helpful to know how this no start problem came about ! was any work recently been perform on your car ? it is also possible that you have a theft type problem with your car, which if for any reason your car"s theft system thinks its possibly being stolen, (example does not like the key or the electronic chip in the key is defective) may put it into to a theft lock down, ford uses different methods to keep the car from been stolen,some are disable the starter (example no crank) another is to disable to fuel pump circuit, or disable the spark,the easiest way to make sure this is not whats the problem, is to monitor your theft light, (located either in the gauge cluster or on top of the dash,) you have a red light or a red key that flashes or possible or just says theft, if the system is working correct when you first turn the key to the run position the light ,key or the theft light will flash three times and then go out and say out if it continues to flash you have a theft problem.there are many other possible reasons why you could have no spark such as broken wires ,wires rubbed bare and grounding out to engine ect, I could help you further but would need more information to help you further ,hopefully this will get you headed in the right direction

A 2004 Ford Mustang has an anti theft system that is not allowing it to start that has happened before and have let it sit and then it will start but now it will not Is there any other way to go around...

bite the bullet and spend the big bucks at the dealer. it is the only way to get it fixed and i do not care for dealers, but in this case they've got you by the short ones. you will spend more time, money and aggrevation trying to fix it yourself or by having an independant do it.

Remove the key from the ignition. Pull the negative battery cable, and floor the brake pedal for 10 seconds. Replace the cable and then try and start it. That may reset everything.
