you can reset the system by turning key to on position for 5-10 mins and then try starting it but its probably a short or grounding prob try the engine to chassis ground

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus anti theft

it would be impossible to disable the security feature without a programmer, the entire idea of the system is that no one without the proper key can start the vehicle, there is a program called "sniper" that can disable PATS (the security system in your car, Passive Anti Theft System) but it is costly, another idea to try is to call local lock smiths in your area, it is possible that one may have your key in stock even though the dealer does not,

2006 Mini Cooper turns over won't start. Replaced battery couple days ago


You disconnected the battery and upset the antit-heft immobilizer because you didn't reconnect properly!

Number 1 tip when changing batteries is to keep the power to the vehicle using jump leads, a battery minder, or just two lengths of wire.

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

Hi I have a 2003 Suzuki liana, Iv put in an 2006 Suzuki engine into it and won't start and has no spark can you help me?


Did you disconnect the battery when you did the work? I am guessing you probably did. Your anti-theft system is invoked.

Disconnect the battery for 2 hours. Bridge the connectors for 5 minutes to fully dissipate any residual power. Put the key in the ignition, reconnect the battery sharply. Leave for 15 minutes to initialise.

My 2002,ford focus se 5 SPD won't start at all no sound when key is turned. When key is in start position no dash lights come on and my anti theft light above hazards blinks continuously any ideas?


Verify battery condition by turning on headlights and seeing if they are bright. If ok, the theft system may be activated. Try locking and unlocking doors with the key fob. This will usually reset the theft deterent system.

Cranks but won't start


No reset switch. Hook up a fuel pressure gauge an check pressure . Check electrical circuit , voltage drop testing . are the fuel injectors firing ? Anti-theft system light lit ? anti-theft system problems on some vehicles will disable fuel injectors .

Still need an answer to why my 98 explorer wont start ,started just fine 3 minutes prior spins but no start get spark compression fuel but no start if i wait a day or two it almost starts but dies qi


Check if the injectors are pulsing when cranking the engine over. Listen for the tick, or feel for the pulse with your fingertips, or buy a cheap "noid light"-an injector circuit tester- one that fits your injector harness connectors-plug it into an injector connector and crank the car. If circuit is working the noid light will be flashing.
Some anti-theft systems immobilize the injector circuit when they are activated. So you have spark, compression, and fuel to the engine, check the injector circuit.
