You have to have your key reprogrammed or get a new key. your car keys have a little chip in them if they go bad your car won't start. also your power locks could set it off too if not working right.

Theft system


Hello

To solve this on your fuse box you will see the theft icon. You probaly need to take the fuse out. Wait for a minute (you cloud try to start there will be no power going to the theft control board) then place it back then. If that doesn't work then your Theft system board might have problem. You might need to contact a mechanic.

Hope this helped

Problem is in the {PAPS) anti-theft system.car wont start


I had the same problem - My car would not start. There is a bypass button in your car that when you press and start the car at the same time the car will start. To find this button look just above the hood release lever or in that area there is the bypass button. I finally had to remove the anti-theft system and now my car starts fine. The dealer would not replace the anti-theft, but could remove it but the cost was way to high, so I went to place were they replace car radio and other similiar services and payed around $30.00 to have it remove. They also told me that I really did not need this system on my car, because you can't start the car without the key.

Hope this help.

Have a 98 mustang v6 that just replaced the starter, alternator and last the fuel pump, everything back together now when try to start up, anti theft blinks crazy and tries to turn over but will not catch,...


This is from the Ford manual:


When the ignition is turned to RUN or START, the

theft indicator will light for 3 seconds and then go

out. If the theft indicator stays on for an extended

period of time or flashes rapidly, have the system

serviced by your dealership or a qualified technician.

You can view additonal information at this Free Ford website, by viewing the owners manual.

Anti theft light is flashing rapidly and my car will not start Ford Mustang 2004 V6


you need to have your key reprogrammed. even a plain spare key will set off the alarm if it does not have a chip programmed with the same code as the anti theft system.

Anti theft system


The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.
