That is a computer code that has to be cleared. you can go to advance auto parts and try but will most likely have to go to the dealer to have it cleared.

SOURCE: air bag

CLEARING CODES (works for code 52)
1. Only intermittent codes and codes that diagnostic monitor recognizes as being repaired may be cleared from memory. To clear codes, cycle ignition OFF to ON. Observe AIR BAG warning light. AIR BAG warning light will illuminate for 4-8 seconds, and flash fault code.

(Comment) Loosely translated - If you dont have the problem fixed, this wont work. Code 52 should clear with this!

2. Locate air bag diagnostic 2-pin connector.

(Comment) This was a fun one. According to the air bag wiring diagram that I also got from Mitchell, the Airbag Diagnostic Connector is located "Right side of Instrument Panel". The only thing I found immediately to the right of the I/P (between the stereo and Instrument panel) was a black computer with 4 connectors which is NOT what I was looking for. I finally found a blog that mentioned the computer for the air bag computer was behind the right side kick panel. Sure enough....there it was. Attached to the side of the diagnostic computer was a two prong diagnostic connector.

3. Connect a jumper wire between diagnostic connector terminals. Leave jumper wire connected until diagnostic monitor tone sounds (about 5 seconds). Disconnect jumper wire. Fault code is cleared.

SOURCE: 2000 F150 parking lights and tail lights stay on

Are you sure they aren't the stoplights (brake lights)? There should be a stoplight switch connected to the brake pedal and replacing it would correct the problem. If it is the tail and parking lights, you must need a new switch that controls them. Signed, 64 year old car guy.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford F150 Extended Cab Cruise Control does not work

Have you check your truck for the Cruise control recall that ford haves for this year of a truck. I own a 2001 Ford Expedition and they re-place a wiring harness on the top right of my Engine, close to the firewall. It have a fuse in line with it. The re-call stated that the cruise control can star a fire in the Engine if the wire's get to hot. So maybe your wire's already meted and are stopping the power from traveling to the unit.

How to disconnect anti theft


It is hard to give a definite answer because I don't know which and how many wires were damaged...Anti theft can be a real HEADACHE.....You can begin by disconnecting battery cables..Use your VIN number for parts,Get new ignition with a programmed factory key from dealer only.....They probably blew certain fuses and or relays when this happened...Or maybe not..Install new ignition connect battery cables..,turn switch on just to check for bad fuses and relays...Disconnect battery again...replace any fuses blown...Connect battery again...( Each time you disconnect battery it resets the computer system and should clear anti theft codes..)..make sure all doors are unlocked by using door remote key fob....Now see if vehicle will crank..If all is done correctly it should start...However I don't know how much damage was done.....It may possibly be too much work to totally disengage anti theft....You could start with removing all fuses and relays related to anti theft but disconnect battery before...I DO NOT RECOMMEND trying to disable the theft system.....You may create more headaches that you want.......Begin by trying what I described just to be safe...!!....

I believe that Anti theft has been trigerred, how


If you put a programmed key in the ignition and turn to the run position, the theft light should go out, no waiting should be required.

Make sure the key is one programmed for the truck, and make sure you do not have another RFID tag ( another PATS key, Speed pass tag, other "swipe" style tags ) near the ign switch when you do this.

If the key is programmed for the truck, and the theft light will no go out, you have another problem, usually the next step is the PATS transceiver.

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!

2001 Ford Winstar Theft light on


When the battery was replaced it possibly set off the anti theft system for your vehicle, check your owners manual for instructions on resetting the system its usually pretty simple, also check your fuses, they could have just went out during the battery change. It should be pretty simple and quick to do. Good luck.
