Putting the key in the ignition and turning it on will turn off the security, if everything is working. You need to put a scanner on it and see which part isn't working. The Key, the BCM, the ECM, or it could be wiring. Resetting is a dealer option only. Rekeying can be done by some locksmiths.

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

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar anti theft light flashing vehicle won't 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.

SOURCE: how do you reset the anti theft system

Try disconnecting your battery cables then wait about 10 minutes. The computer should reset itself. Reconnect the wires to the battery. It is normal for the theft light to blink about every 5 seconds when the ignition key is out or in the off position. This means the system is armed and working properly. Hope this helps. God bless!

Can i bypass the ignition safety lost key 01 ford escape xlt

Sorry you can't. Ford's suck because you have to have two keys to reprogram the security to the keys. Last one I had done cost about $200. Dealer only.

I have a 2013 ford taurus and the anti theft light is blinking i tried to jump the car off thinking it may be the battery but everything in the car is coming on it just won't start. It has the push button...

this is the anti-theft system that has activated thinking the car was being tampered with. it will have to be reset. not sure if this is a problem with the BCM or the car keys have a problem. you may have to contact the dealer or a shop that can re-program this circuit.

How do I reset the computer on Ford 2011 escape?

The best way is to take out the fuse that says ECM. If that is not possible, you can disconnect the battery but if you do that make sure that you have any radio codes that you may need and any precautions about anti theft.
