Antitheft wont let engine turn over or start

2001 windstar; at times antitheft will allow engine to turn over at times but still wont start and starter drags acts like low voltage in battery. Voltage is 12.6 and was fine before this problem;engine turns over fine when i use my starter button connected to the solenoid,it also wont start this way with ignition turned on.

Have you tried disconnecting the battery for 15 -- 30 minutes, it may allow the anti-theft device to reset....

Eventually, you will be replacing the battery (My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh one). Ford may have issued a factory service bulletin (FSB) for 2001 that applied to your vehicle.

These cars have issues with the antitheft system. When it fails to work correctly, it won't allow the vehicle to start as an antitheft measure. This link explains.

2000 Chevy Impala just had a used engine installed. Battery is brand new, but the car will not even turn over when you try and start the car. THe radio lights and all the electrical components work fine....


These cars and many many many other gm cars and trucks are equipped which an antitheft feature. Many times on engines swaps and ignition changes, this system gets interrupted because the computer is not seeing the proper signal from the original equipment. Try to start the car, when it doesn't turn over, leave the key in the "on" position. Look for a light near your gauges that says "security" or "antitheft". If you see this indicator light, then the problem is definitely the antitheft system. Fixing it is rather expensive. Bypassing it is relatively cheap. This link explains everything you need to know.
