Try another key, it sounds like the key you are using is not programmed for the truck.

If another key does the same thing, the next step would be the PATS transceiver antenna at the ignition cylinder.

Start with trying with another key for the truck.

If this is a new key you jsut had cut, you need 2 working keys to program the new one, directions are in the owners manual.

Anti-theft system problem !
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. This indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS problem, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. PATS also "blips" the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual theft deterrent.
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.
The PATS is not compatible with aftermarket remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. Remote start systems must be removed before investigation of PATS-related No Start issues.

Ford security light flashing,no start

I had a 1995 F150 with a recall bulletin for an electrical problem in the doors. Took the truck to Midway Ford, they worked on the truck, parked it up on the hill East of the shop. When I got there the truck started, the alarm triggered and when they checked out their work, they had failed to re-connect a wire inside the drivers door. Have you had wiring connections opened recently? You might want to recheck the connections if you have. That was the only time the truck did anything like that and after they reconnected the wire I had no more electrical problems with it.

Anti theft system for 2002 ford explorer.

take this to the dealer and have them scan the system door ajar switches, one or more is sticking, this is the problem with the alarm most likely as well, the door ajar switches (there are 6 on a 4 door) are twisted into the door latch inside the door without scanning the GEM (generic electronic module, controls locks and windows and wipers) you would have to pull all the door panels and taligate and test a each switch, a very expensive time consuming job.

the "THEFT" light should always be flashing tells you its working, i have a 93 deville does the same thing, but if the alarm sounds alot make sure you dont open the doors with the handle or the unlock arm if the doors are locked only use the key or the button on the remote or buttons on the car door and if the alarm still goes off you might have an electrical problem
