1997 mustang gt security light does not come on and will not start
A bit more info required , does the security system lock the doors as well ? is it operated by a fob that you press a button on ?if the doors uasually lock/unlock and this isn't happening as well as the non starting i would first change the battery in the operating fob as this is a common cause and easily overlooked, keep me posted if you wish

SOURCE: 1994 cadillace anti theft system
I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

SOURCE: car wont start
as long as security theft system is on, car wont start.
don't you have the remote key to disable the theft system?
you can bypass security but you have to have wiring experience and splicing before you can proceed.
tnx 4 using fixya,

try turning the key to the acc position and leave it in that position till the light goes off. if it goes off then turn key off and then try starting if that dont work call a ford dealership and ask a mechanic

disconnect battery for 24 hrs so the computer will reset and if that dont work take it to chevy dealer and have them reset it manually

this is one way to reset it :
first make sure the battery is fully charged , then do the following:
key in the ignition but do not crank the motor, just leave it at the
ignition mode for ten minutes ,then turn it off POSITION for 5 seconds then REPEAT again 2 more times. at the 3 rd time youre gonna notice the ANTI THEFT light on dash to blink. when doing the last step , remove key , inserted again and turn on motor , good luck , AJ
