Hi...

A code indicating a low or high MAF signal can be caused by a bad MAF sensor.
The information (reset antitheft) that you are asking for is very sensitive and can be used by actual thief, cannot be give on line, you need to contact the Ford Service center.
Thanks
Smith

How do i disconnect anti theft on 05 chevy malibu?


The antitheft system is an integral part of your onboard computer network. You cannot "disconnect" it. The proper way to handle this problem is to have your keyless entry/antitheft system properly diagnosed and repaired.

The first place I would start is to try the OTHER key fob. (The vehicle was originally programmed with two of them)

TURNS OVER BUT WON'T START


If you tried to start it with the wrong key you may have scrambled the Key Code for the matching Antitheft computer. There have been past incidents where this is all that you have to do to make this problem.

When you tried to Reset, (Sorry, have to Ask) did you switch the Air-ride switch instead of the Fuel pump Reset? On a Lincoln they are very near one another.

Now they make some of this stuff too Intelligent and then you can't drive your car. Before you try to determine if this is a Spark or Fuel problem try Resetting by using your Keyless Entry passcode instead of your handheld remote FOB. If that does not work and the dash does not display a steady "Check Engine" light, then disconnect the NEG battery terminal for 10 minutes and see if the system reboots after you reattach it.

If this solves the problem, you may have had any number of problems. The Antitheft could have worked, or you may have had a Relay stuck. The Relays are sequential and if one stuck and did not return to its base position, then the other Relays could not switch on.

I think it's an electrical problem due to a keyless entry and security system. It has no power and a new battery.


I believe you have a security problem with your vehicle....With vehicles having keyless entry and the newer types of security systems, once the battery is disconnected the system must be reset by the agents.

My 2004 Tiburon GT will not unlock with the remote. When I use my key in the door my anti-theft goes off and I cannot start my car. I have replaced the remote battery and disconnected the battery terminals...


you can get it to crank but you just won't be able to use the keyless function without going back to the dealer first locate the ecu fuse in the fusebox under the dash, pull it out but don't put it down. Next put your key in the ignition and start turning over the motor, now the car won't crank or push oil through the motor with the ecu deactivated so don't hold it for too long. Now as your turning the motor over, reinsert the ecu fuse. The car will fire to life...you will have essentially reflashed your ecu so people with tuned ecu's beware. Your keyless won't work but hey at least now you can drive to get it fixed...as for the naysayers, yes I tried this on my tiburon and it still works fine so don't worry...good luck

2001 Chevy cavalier Z24 keyless entry not working.


You should have it scaned to see if you have any codes. It has a RCDLR (remote control door lock reciever) this is the module that recieves the signal from the fobs. If it has a problem then the system will not work. If it has to be replaced then a dealer will have to program it for you. Good Luck
