Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

2002 Explorer will turn over but wont start

Here is what I am being told:
You have a problem with the transponder not reading the key. It is a computer problem in the vehicle and the dealership can diagnose it correctly as to whether you demagnetized the key, or the transponder failed, or whether it is a main computer problem in the vehicle.
This is not an uncommon problem with these vehicles.

If you have an alarm with anti theft it was installed with a transponder box inside of the box is an uncut key for your truck.sometimes they dont read properly. you can access the box usually under the dash. open the box make sure key is in position and is plugged in.what im telling you is what i just dealt with on my 02 explorer. take a look. good luck.

Where is the pats override button located? specific under dash location. 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD


There is no PATS override button. PATS is Passive Anti-Theft System. It is a transponder chip in the key, and a transceiver ring around the ignition lock cylinder. The Ring looks for the correct chip in a key in order to allow the vehicle to start. A bypass or override button in the vehicle completely advantage of having the chip system and would render is useless in entirety.

2002 Ford Explorer will not start. Theft light flashes and makes a continuous ping noise.


This happens if you put the wrong key in accidentally. Get into the Explorer and insert the known correct key into the ignition and turn it. If you use the wrong key, such as one that was cut to open the doors, the system will remain armed. If the car then starts, then you have disarmed the anti theft system. If not, move on to this: Ford Explorer keys have large black plastic, or molded rubber, heads. Inside the head is a transponder chip that is programmed to a certain code so that the transponder recognizes the key. When you are sure you have the correct key, try to start the car with the spare, if you have it. If the car still refuses to start, move on to next step here: Wait 15 minutes, until you see the flashing rate on the red light on your dashboard decrease to normal speed and then try both keys again. If this still fails to start the car, raise the hood and disconnect the battery for 15 minutes, then reconnect it and try again.

Does honda civic lx 2002 have a chip in the key? the black part of my key got broke but the key will turn the car on but wont actually start it


Yes, it contains a transponder chip. If you still have the fob part with the chip in tape it to the plastic close to where you put the key in. Honda used a proximity transponder so as long as it is near by it will read it ok.

2002 Ford Explorer: Security system prevents car from starting.


Your ignition requires a radio signal from a chip inside your key to start the car . Your car wont start because you are using the wrong key, your ignition is no longer able to read the key (ignition replacement), or your key is malfunctioning.
