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,

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.

Car wont start after pulling out the spark plug leads and then attempting to start as an anti theft procedure. could be a electronic distributor malfunction?


You pulled the wires to test anti theft. Or pulled them to see if there was spark because of anti theft? Year make and model helps. Older cars did kill the spark. Newer ones on kill the fuel.

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.

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.

2006 suzuki swift immobiliser light flashing and car not starting what can i do to fix it?


You may have a bad key chip, try a diffrent key in the ignition, also make sure you do not have magnet strip mini swipe cards on key chain near the ignition. this sounds like the immoboilizer system is active. this system will not allow the coils to spark.
The key would be the first thing to check. do this by using another key.if car still will not start then the key reader may be bad, this is located around the ignition . the last problem could be the module or a broken wire.The best way to check this would be with a scan tool. there will be codes stored in the anti or body module. the codes will tell you where the failure is and with some testing the problem can be found. the scan tool can help by reading the values and readings. it can tell you if the key chip is read and if the module accepts it. i think if the spare key does not start the car then it will be cheaper to have a shop diagnose the problem. this will help you from just putting parts in. also this anti theft system needs programing when certain parts are replaced.
hope this is helpful, good day
