I would unplug the connection to the alarm device or pull the fuse out .If its not a factory installed system it could be the root cause of a lot of problems .
And even if it is factory a scan tool or code reader on a 2004 ranger isn't going to tell you much useful information just confuse the real issue .
Eliminate problems 1 at a time you already suspect the alarm system witch is an after thought to protect the vehicle from break ins or theft and really has little to do with how the vehicle was desgined to opperate under actaul driveing condutions unless its shorting out it self and effecting something that is important to driveing condutions

Sorry, but you can't. You have to have it scanned. This will tell you a direction to look. It could be the key, receiver, wires, or the PCM.

SOURCE: Truck Won't Start At All

before replacing the starter get a volt meter and test the voltage coming out of the voltage regulator which the power comes from the battery to the regulator down to the starter also make sure all wires on the starter are clean and what I mean is from rust because I had an f150 that did the same thing

SOURCE: Hello accent 2004 with anti theft system battery flat anti theft

Have you verified this system is running the battery down? The system you describe is called the Remote Keyless Entry System (Electronic Time/Alarm & Control System - ETACS Module). It cannot be 'disconnected' without disabling other systems (intermittent wipers, Chime bell, Door Warning, Dimming Off Room Lamp, Seat Belt indicator, remote power door lock/unlock system, etc.)

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!

My 1998 Ford Ranger will not crank or start is it the factory alarm or anti theft alarm? How could I fix it myself


Is the security light flashing while trying to start the vehicle ?
The theft warning system provides the vehicle with protection from unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment and engine compartment (hood opening). It also protects against engine starting through ignition keylock cylinder tampering. If triggered, the system provides both audio and visual alarm signals and disables the starter circuit.
Sorry but you will have to take it to the dealer if it's the anti-theft system

I changed the starter with new as old one was not turning. After replacing new starter my truck does not crank and start, Please help me to start my Truck. Anti theft light is blinking all the time.


You solved your own problem.
The anti-theft system is probably keeping it from starting.
Get the system checked out and you may find the problem is the chip in the key.

Could anti-theft system d mustang cause car to shut off while driving?


Hi, im a retired ford tech, with alot of experience on ford anti theft . Now if you are asking about a built in oem factory anti theft, your not going to be able to bypass it. Now to answer your question, I would say your factory anti theft IS NOT causing your issue. It will make it unable to start,it doesnt kill anything else.

My 2004 Ford Ranger will not start. The Anti-theft system light is flashing and the ignition is locked up


Did you try disconnecting the battery for about 10 or 20 seconds? It may only need to be reset. You may also need to replace the batteries in your remote, or possibly try a second remote if you have one. The problem is definitely alarm related.
