Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?

If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

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.

I cant get my truck started it turns over but wont start i think it might be the connection to the battery how do i change the battery cables

if it turns over but will not start, its either theft locked or the fuel pump is bad . start by checking the fuses in the fuse box under the hood .. if there is a problem like it was jumped with the cables backward it will blow one of the 40 or 50 amp fused in the fuse box, if those are ok see if the theft light is flasing, some 98s do have trasponder keys the can loose program. if the theft light is no on and the fuses are good check the inertia switch it will shut off fuel to the engine. its located in the right front kick panel ,remove the kick panel and make sure its pushed, if all that is ok and you still think its the cables , have some one crank the engine while you wiggle the cables if it starts then and you do need to replace the cable the easyest way is to buy the cable extesions at the parts house, that is a cable end with a piece of batt, wire that has a screw fastener ,just cut the old batt, cables of strip the ends and insert into the new fastner and tighten the screw

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.

1996 ford explorer anti theft wont let car start when battery die

Do you have a keyless entry? You could try to enter your vehicle using the keypad on the drivers side door, This should turn off the anti-theft security.
