Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
I have the exact, word for word problem that the last guy posted.
The battery ran out over the night, we too had a door that was not closed all the way. We charged the battery, it is fine and holds a very good charge. The lights work, radio, the door dinger, windows, everything else works, but the car won't start. No noise, no clicking, no sign at all that the ignition or starter is even trying to start the vehicle. Checked EVERY fuse, battery cable, the starter, power to the starter, and so on.
A FORD MACHANIC HAS TOLD ME THAT IN FACT THE KEY HAS TO BE RECODED. MY SITUATION IS EXACTLY THE SAME. HE SAID TO RECODE THE KEY I HAD TO TURN THE IGNITION TO THE RUN POSITION, THE SECURITY LIGHT ON THE DASH WILL FLASH RAPIDLY AND CONTINUE TO FLASH FOR 15 MINUTES . WITHIN FIVE MINUTES AFTER THE LIGHT STOPS FLASHING I MUST TURN OFF THE IGNITION FOR ONE SECOND AND TURN IMMEDIATLY BACK TO THE RUN POSITION FOR 15 MORE MINUTES. THE LIGHT WILL GO OFF AGAIN . WITHIN 5 MIN. I MUST TURN OFF THE IGNITION FOR ONE SECOND AND TURN BACK TU RUNNING POSITION. 15 MINUTES LATER REPEAT STEPS AGAIN AND THE KEY WILL BE REPROGRAMMED, AND STSRT THE CAR. GOOD LUCK MY CONTACT IS A FORD MASTER MECHANIC.

TRY TO OVERRIDE THE ALARM. ALARM MUST OF RESET OR SEE IF THEFT LIGHT FLASHES FAST WHEN KEY IS TURNED. MAKE SURE NO CORROSION AT ALL ON ANY BATTERY CABLE.

If the abs and brake lights stay on check the abs sensor on the wheel, or side that you hit the branch on odds are that the plug in to the sensor came unplugged, or tore out a wire.
