When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

99 mercury cougar I lost my key. I replaced my steering column with another steering column with key. My car wont start so what do I do next.


The problem is with the factory security system; you'll need to reset the security code matching between the security system and the code on your keys that came with the new column.

My 98 pontiac grand am wont stay running after replacing the steering column and ignition


Did you use the same key? bet not. the security system is shutting down the engine because it doesn't see the correct signal from the ignition key.

I have a 1998 cadillac catera...yesterday it was starting & driving fine. i turned it off pulled out a relay fuse, put it back in and now the car wont start..it sounds like it wants to but dosent? can...


It's possible you activated the anti-theft system when you pulled the relay. Look for a security light to confirm this. If that's the case, insert your key into the drivers door and turn as if unlocking the car. If the security light isn't on, you may have inadvertently blown a fuse when replacing the relay.

If the keys have a chip, you may have to go back to the wrecker and get the computer out of the same car. Not sure about your car, but thats the way the older gm products are. If there is no chip on the key... i'm out. Sorry.

It is a white or beige looking ring around the key switch and its why the key is recessed in the column so it enters the reactor ring. If you remove the top and bottom halves of the column cover, you should see it.
