2003 Ford Taurus SES wont start and theft light blinking

The other day my 2003 Ford Taurus SES suddenly would not start! I unhooked the batt. for 1 hr or more hoping it would reset, but of course that didnt work. I also tried another method of locking the doors for 60 sec. and then turning the key left for 30 sec. then right. This also of course did not work. All lights and features in the car work but when you try to start it all you here is the click of the starter then nothing. At that time all the idiot lights on the dash light up. When you turn the key back the theft light begins to blink again. Help! I will try anything!

    I chose the Taurus because I wanted a vehicle with lots of room. I also wanted a vehicle with four doors so that people didn't have to crawl in and out of the back seat like was the case with my 2 door Explorer Sport. The Taurus can comfortably seat 5 adults and for short trips will seat 6 adults or 5 adults and a child. The front seat is a split 60/40 seat. The middle will comfortably fit a child or it can be folded down to reveal an armrest and a cup and change holder. As for cargo space, the Taurus also has lots of this! I have never seen a trunk so big on a medium sized sedan. My mother has a Buick Park Avenue and the trunk on my Taurus is as large if not larger. The opening to the trunk is also large. I learned with my Mustang that this makes a big difference when you are trying to place suitcases in the trunk and they won't fit through the opening.http://www.reviewedfords.com/2010-ford-t...

2001 ford taurus wont start


I see that you replaced battery, coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Did you or do you have a check engine light or SES light on? If you did not I agree with the problem being Anti theft which includes a replacement key not having a transponder chip. BUT at the same time it could be something as simple as dirty battery post or bad battery cables, since sometimes it does start. I RECOMMEND CHECKING THE BATTERY CABLES FIRST. let me know if this works for you.

My taurus wont start or even turn over battery connections all ok. my theft light is blinking faster than normal could this be a reason for not starting? if so what do i do or try? im frustrated......


yes the fast blinking theft light indicates that theft mode is activated. you wont be able to start the vehicle until you have the keys reprogrammed at your local ford dealer.

I assume you are saying you have a check engine light illuminated.

Most auto parts stores will read the OBD II code(s) for check engine lights at no charge. The codes they read will give you an idea of what the problem is.

My ford taurus just wont start


check that the small [exciter wire] is not loose or disconnected at the starter motor solenoide !
It could also be a bad starter relay!
try bridging the exciter terminal to the posative [big cable ] on the starter solenoide with a screwdriver or a piece of heavy guage wire to see if the starter activates!
if it works would it could be a faulty relay

P0153 error code for 2000 Ford Taurus SES V6 3.0L


the tech is right.. the trouble codes do not tell you what is wrong with the car... they just give you a general area to look in which involves testing multiple components and sensors. if the tech quoted you for and hour diag time i would say that you should at least expext to spend somewhere in the 300$ area depending on part cost.

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


make sure battery is fully charged and have tested for a weak cell and check out the alternator and the drive belt and if the car has over 40,000miles it needs a tune up plugs wires fuel filter and if all this fails have the timing checked and don't forget the crank sensor to have it checked
