It should blink fast any time the key is removed or in the off position. When you turn the key to on it will be on steady for a few seconds to show that the light works. Once you start the vehicle the light should not be on or flashing.

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

SOURCE: 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

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

On my 2000 ford expodition xlt I put starter sylinoid switch and ignition switch when I turn key I don't get a crank and theft light keeps blinking I took off the ign. Switch cranks no start


David - the first order of business is to recheck your solenoid wiring and make sure you did it correctly. Its pretty easy to make a mistake - learned this the HARD way on my Ford truck!

I suggest watching the video in the link below to see if there is anything obvious you might have missed. Its normal for "THEFT" to blink any time the key is off. Carefully check the two SMALL WIRES they call "command wires" in the video, and make sure they're not damaged at the connector. I had to put new ends on mine.

HELPFUL HINT TO ALL DIY'ers: TAKE PICTURES BEFORE STARTING! My son and I caused ourself hours and hours of work simply because we forgot to snap a picture of what the solenoid wiring was like to start with. Check out this video:

How to bypass factory anti theft on 1998 ford expedition


Attention to everyone with this problem. The alarm light will always blink when vehicle is not in operation but blinks slow. This is normal. You only have a problem if you cannot start vehicle. This is a sign there was a "attempted" theft of your vehicle. If this is the case, you will usually have to do like others have suggested. A new key and or fob, etc. Hope this helps. I went through this embarrassment when I "drove" my 2000 Explorer to the dealership and was informed of the same thing I just explained. Seems reading the owners manual sometimes will answer some of the most seemingly complicated questions:)

2000 ford explorer xlt 4.0 cranks will not start took to garage changed battery cables and cleaned charging system 2 days later cranks will not start but can hear fuel pump running when I turn key the...


You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.
