How to reset Anti-theft system on 2001 Ford expedition? The theft light will blink rapidly and the engine will not start but once the theft light goes out it will start


Security on Fords are a pain. First code readers can't/won't help you. It takes a scanner to read security codes. Yours seems intermittent. First, while it is acting OK, if you don't have an extra key for it, go get it and have it programmed it in. If this seems to take care of your problem, go get another and have it programmed. Transponders/keys do die. Thing with the keys, Ford requires 2 keys to reset the security, if your one key is dead. Now you have to have it towed, and purchase 2 new keys from Ford. Ford keys are cheap, But from Ford, your looking at close to $300 for 2 of them.. Scanners will give codes to point you in a direction. Some shops will read codes for free, Just ask them to read the security codes. Active and history codes are what you need to know. You would like to see no valid key/transponder codes. This tells you that it is a bad key, bad receiver or a bad wire close to the receiver. Receivers don't need programmed. It wraps around the ignition lock cylinder. $50 and an hour later, your back on the road.

What could keep my coil from firing ? I have the Ignition control signal and 12v. while cranking over engine at the top primary wiring of coil. Can you help me get spark?


Sounds like the security system is causing your problem. Is the "security" light flashing? If it is, turn the key on, leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing. Now, turn OFF the key, turn it back to ON, and then crank it. It should start. If the security light starts flashing again, go through the process again until it starts. This is resetting the security system after the battery has died, battery has been changed, radio was changed, instrument cluster was removed and replaced, etc. Hope this works for you.

Buick security light flashing? How to reset security?


If you have a remote key fob for your locks etc it very much sounds like the battery is dead which will cause the car to"lockdown" so-replace battery. Good luck!

My 2001 oldsmobile alero will not start, I put gas and it would not crank over. Then the security light started flashing so I turned the key to the on poistion and was waiting 10 minutes and during that...


im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.

CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING


when key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!

Can t get my car to stay on for l,onger than three seconds


There are many things that can cause this condition, but you are spending way too much money trying to figure out what. Is the check engine light on? If it is then take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) from the computer. Most parts stores offer this service at no charge and they have no agenda. Getting the code(s) will greatly assist in determining what the true problem might be. I don't know where to begin, since you have been replacing both ignition system and fuel system components. I would lean toward a faulty idle air control valve, EGR valve, or Mass Airflow Sensor, but the code(s) should tell the tale. Sure hope this helped you and good luck. I would be interested to know what you find out.

My 2001 chevy malibu ls v6cranks,starts up but right after,right after dies like somethings shutting it down. radio was locked from me disconnecting my battery without disconnecting the anti theft system....


Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.
