My 2003 denali got coded and the codes were earased and now my truck wont start


Hooking up a scan tool to see if the PCM/ECM - engine computer will communicate should be first step . A non talking PCM would cause this problem . Who erased the codes ? Is the battery good ? Do headlamps work ? Inside lights ? Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? When you turn the key on does the check engine light lite ?

At the base of your steering column is the ignition/start/run switch. This has failed and needs to be replaced. You'll need to drop the column and remove the kneepad to gain access. Be sure to locate the new switch in the exact spot of the old one. It has slotted screws.

I have a '99 Ford Ranger 3.0L that won't start reliably(3 times in 2 weeks).When I turn the ignition to "on",the theft light flashes rapidly,and will eventually give me a 1:6 code(faulty link between PATS...


When the anti-theft light is flashing rapidly then either it is not seeing the key,or the transciever module is not communicating with the PCM. It could be the transciever or it could be the PCM is not powering up for some reason. I would first try replacing the PCM relay in the underhood fuse panel.

I just replaced the front cover of a 2003 Ford, Ranger, 2.3


there are no timing specs for that vehicle, the vehicle pcm does all of that. always mark your gears and chains when you take them off. if you just replaced the cover and thats it, there should be no reason why you would have to set the timing-

My 2004 F150 will not start. When I turn the key the anti theft light just flashes. The key has not lost its code. I tried a 2nd key


the key has lost it's code, there is a chip in the key that communicates with the security system that the correct key is in the ignition and that the vehicle is allowed to start.

if you have any other keys on your key ring remove these and try again.
if no start and light still flashes the computer will need reprogrammed to accept the key.
the dealer can do this in like 10 -15 minutes usually.

Lost anti-theft ignition key


You will need to take the truck to Ford so they can replace the ignition again, and replace the key, recode and reprogram it to the PCM in the vehicle there is nothing you can do in this case.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya Rating Thank you so much.
