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.

Somebody stole my only '99 convertable mustang cobra key from me. I cant really have a locksmith come out to where it is to make a new key WHAT CAN I DO!

If you can still get inside your car check your owners manual and see if you can find the key tags with the key code on them. They will look sort of like dog tags except on white plastic or paper and will have a set of 4 numbers followed by an X(0027X - Example). If not call a local Ford Dealer and see if they can pull a key code via the VIN#/Serial# of the car either in the service records or via Ford's online key replacement site(there may be a charge for this as Ford charges the dealer for access but only if they can find a key code). Also they will probably want proof of purchase(registration,insurance, or bill of sale) and your drivers license to prove that your not stealing the car. Or you can contact the original selling Ford dealer and see if they kept the key code in the deal file. Once you have a key code a Ford dealer can cut you a new key. I do believe that your Mustang will have a PATS system so be prepared if you have to tow it to a dealership in order for them to program the keys other wise they will not start the car. I would also advise contacting your insurance agency because some will cover the cost of stolen keys.

2002 mustang Gt 4.6l I changed the instrument cluster and now theft lite is flashing and car wont start. The new cluster is out of a 2003 Mustang SVT

You are going to have to get the security system reset. You will probably have to contact the dealership if you don't have the code.

The key switch on my 1997 Ford Mustang has gone bad and I need to replace it. It has a key coded anti thief device on this car. How can I install the new switch and get it to accept the new key code?

usually all you have to do is replace the switch with the matching key and this would program automatically if not then you may have to have a diagnostic hooked up and program it manually.

I locked my keys in my truck, when I put my code in the keyless pad the doors do not open. 2002 Ford Explore sport trac.The keys are in the ignition.

There are several things you can do.
1. Ask the Police dispatcher if an Officer could get in your car for you.
2. Call a Locksmith. If you have Autoclub or some types of insurance, they will pay.
3. Call the dealer with your Vin#. If you can convince the Dealer who you are they may give you the original code for the truck.

The Keycode can be changed after the truck is built. You would enter the original code, hold in 2 of the buttons in a special sequence and then reenter a new code. Most of the time the truck remembers the change but it can revert back to the original.
