2003 ford mustang gt anti theft light flashing engine will turn over but will not start


From my experience...
A non PATS coded key SHOULD not turn the STARTER...!

If ANTI-THEFT were invoked... you can attain a not start condition which the Owners Manual says must be cleared by the dealer.

A working PATS key should disable the anti theft... by turning the ignition on... ELSE try your other key.

The SecuriLock [PATS]
passive anti-theft system is not compatible with
non-Ford aftermarket remote start systems. Use of these systems may
result in vehicle starting problems and a loss of security protection.

Disable anti theft on ford taurus


You can't , your best bet is take your vehicle to the ford dealer an have it checked out . The ford PATS - passive anti-theft system is intertwined in all the computer systems on the vehicle . I don't even think you can go into the system with the ford diagnostic tool an disable it . There is no where you could just disconnect it , it's software programmed into the modules (computers) on the vehicle .

How to shut off anti theft in ford windstar van ?


There's no off switch. The anti-theft system is part of the instrument cluster and engine computer.
If you can't disable the system with the remote or by locking and unlocking the driver door with the key, the system will have to be repaired.
