SOURCE: antitheft and battery lite on 2006 ford freestar

Try your spare key first. also, does the anti theft visual indicator (red flashing light) prove out, that is light for three seconds when key is turned to on.

here's some info.

Principles of Operation
The passive anti-theft system (PATS) uses a specially encoded ignition key. Each encoded ignition key contains a permanently installed electronic device called a transponder. Each transponder contains a unique electronic identification code out of over 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a drive-away theft. This system is known as SecuriLock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (PATS) is not compatible with NON-FORD remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. If equipped, the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle's powertrain control module (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. The correct ignition key is a different design than prior model years. Consult the Rotunda Key Ordering Guide for the correct part number. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
This system contains a new feature named Unlimited Key Mode. This feature allows a customer to program more than eight keys to the vehicle if they request it. Each vehicle in Unlimited Key Mode is set up with a special unlimited transponder security key. This allows all the customer vehicles to share the same keys, but no other keys from outside can be used to operate the vehicles. For an individual customer, any randomly selected security key is acceptable. Refer to Unlimited Key Mode Programming in Key Programming Switch State Control in this section.
The PATS transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. The module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends data to the PCM.
The control functions are contained in the PCM. This module carries out all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling the engine enable. The PCM initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
All elements of the PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start.
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. The indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS concern, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. The PATS system also flashes the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual deterrent.
PATS will be activated and will disable the vehicle from starting if there is:

  • an incorrectly encoded ignition key.
  • a damaged encoded ignition key.
  • an unprogrammed key
  • a non-encoded key (key has no electronics).
  • damaged wiring.
  • a damaged transceiver.
  • a damaged PCM.

SOURCE: CD stuck in player of 2005 ford freestar

Take another cd and push the stuck one all the way back then try and eject it. If it doesn't come out right away do the process again this time when you hit eject take another cd and push down or up on it. Wiggle it around so it catches the rollers in there. Using CDs with homemade labels causes jams when the stickers peel up.

Hi I have a 6 cd player (ford freestar 2005 SEL) , and it doesn't accept any cd and won't reject one inside . Any suggestions ?


you can remove and take of back to remove cd inside, but wouldn't recommend, they are considered to be sealed units. The only supported way to do is take to the dealership parts department and they can send out to their supplier to be repaired..not what you wanted to hear, but even if you would like to replace with a used one, they have an internal module called ACM, this information will have to be uploaded and then downloaded to new internal ACMin the new radio

sorry, but that is the new technology at its best, limiting what people can do on their own

Good luck

CD PLAYER WANT EXCEPT CD'S AND WANT EJECT


i see this alot at my dealership, i don't want to sound rude but if you have children and if you keep change in the van, the very nice children like to put change in the nice cd slot and then things do not work right, remove the radio and shake it, if you hear stuff rattling then you will have to remove the cover and remove the change, if you remove the cover and find nothing then now would be the time to install a aftermarket cd player as they are cheaper then a factory one.

2004 freestar can't turn the radio up or down it


I would question your children " if you have any" if they have put anything in the cd slot, I work at a dealership and we find a lot of problems with the van radios are very nice children like to play and put small change into the cd slot, which shorts out the internal components of the radio, if you remove the radio, dash piece just pops off then 4 screws hold radio in, and shake it you should not hear anything rattling around in it.
