If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.

How to bypass factory anti theft on 1998 ford expedition


Attention to everyone with this problem. The alarm light will always blink when vehicle is not in operation but blinks slow. This is normal. You only have a problem if you cannot start vehicle. This is a sign there was a "attempted" theft of your vehicle. If this is the case, you will usually have to do like others have suggested. A new key and or fob, etc. Hope this helps. I went through this embarrassment when I "drove" my 2000 Explorer to the dealership and was informed of the same thing I just explained. Seems reading the owners manual sometimes will answer some of the most seemingly complicated questions:)

Theft light blinks fast engine turn over but wont start how can we turn the theft light off


You can't will have to be repaired, check and see if the chip on top of the key did not fall out, if not more then likely chip is damage, most mobile lock smith have the computer to reprogram a new chip to your theft system, being you have the key won't be that much, between $60.00 - $100.00.
