SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

sounds like the computer is not working or is not making contact possibly bad ground if anyone has a scan tool and can read codes or if they plug it in and cant retrieve from computer, I would remove PCM and then try swapping with a known good PCM from another truck

Ford ikon 2007 1.6 wount start. when ignition key turned to start oil light go's out but then nothing


cud be so many things with used--likely the electrical--make sure batt is 12.6v always-any less and theres issues--check all fuses for life--inspect for bad wiring and corrosion--cud be a bad ignition switch or lock on steering colum----leave key in start for 10 or mor minutes then try it--its a way of reseting security-criminals usually wont wait that long--a module in the system cud also be at issue----get cat scanned with pro equipment to pinpoint

Lights turn on when car is off, wont engage when started and hazard lights are flashing really fast. had to unhook battery, 03 windstar, any advice


All the thing's your having problems with are computer controlled .The main light switch is a low voltage device , controlled by the instrument cluster . The instrument cluster is connected to the vehicle control moduel system via the SCP - standard corporate protocol , messages are put out on the data network to other modules to control lighting ! The (REM) rear electronic module an the (FEM) front electronic module .

You could look for a loose connection (ground ) But your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop (ford )

Wont shift out of park


probably the brake pedal switch (mounted on the brake pedal lever) starting to fail. it releases the shift lever and controls the brake lights coming on. you will need to replace this.

for now, turn the key in the ignition to the lock position (counter clockwise,) then to the off position (clock wise). In this position the brake shift interlock is disabled and you can move the shifter to neutral. these instructions are also in the owners manual in the driving section. the switch should be changed because eventually you won't have brake lights.

Battery is good, no lights, no nothing when key is


May be ignition switch and/or neutral safety switch (IF equipped with one). Brake light switch and neutral switch may be working in union. Sww if you can see it under the wheel on the column and tell if you can adjust it first before replacing.

1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.


Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.
