Question about 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
I believe it is electrical. Since your theft light is on now, the antitheft could be the reason your car did not start in the first place.
If you have a model with the keypad on the door, try and enter the code without using a remote. Then try to start the vehicle. If that does not work, disconnect the negative post of your battery for 10 minutes and then reattach it.
Repeat the entering of the code on the keypad and then try to start the car.
Some of the ignition keys have a computer chip in them that talks to the antitheft unit. If your chip is broke, the vehicle will not recognize you. The deaaler is about the only place to go for this problem. You can get keys online, but you don't know if it is the car part or the key part that is bad.
