Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred

Open Question

My Ford 500 is in anti-theft mode (the theft light blinks once every 2 seconds) and won't start. I've tried both keys, and I've tried unlocking it with both the remote keyless entry and the number pad. Please help, all the windows are down and it's supposed to rain tonight!

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

Ford cars and such will put a sticker on the hinge or back gate with the numbers on it. It will just be a white sticker with black numbers. A five digit code.

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.

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

My 2002,ford focus se 5 SPD won't start at all no sound when key is turned. When key is in start position no dash lights come on and my anti theft light above hazards blinks continuously any ideas?


Verify battery condition by turning on headlights and seeing if they are bright. If ok, the theft system may be activated. Try locking and unlocking doors with the key fob. This will usually reset the theft deterent system.

How do I disarm anti theft device on a 2001 ford taurus


SEE THE STEPS WITH CAREFULLY AND COMMON SENSE:God bless you
Press the unlock button on your vehicle's key fob to deactivate the alarm. If you've misplaced your remote for the car, use the PATS programmed key to unlock the driver's side door. Then, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. The vehicle's battery should be on, but the engine shouldn't be running.

  • 2 Locate the override button on the alarm box, beneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Press the button and hold it in until the alarm beeps one time. The LED light for the alarm should stop blinking, indicating the anti-theft system is disabled.

  • 3 To reset the vehicle's alarm, put the PATS programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. Press the override button. When the alarm resets, it chirps two times and the LED light begins blinking.

    2003 ford ranger theft light blinking and won't start


    the anti-theft has been activated and needs to be reset.you may have to get it to a shop that has the tools to do this or go to the dealer to get it done.did you use a key that was cut as a spare and doesn`t have a chip in it.this usually can cause this.also if the wires at the switch break it can activate the anti-theft system.

    Anti theft light won't go out


    There are 2 things to try:
    1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
    2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

    yes the fast blinking theft light indicates that theft mode is activated. you wont be able to start the vehicle until you have the keys reprogrammed at your local ford dealer.

    I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


    Hi!!
    I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

    PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
    CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
    Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
    • Unlock left or right front door using key.
    • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
    • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
    HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
    PROGRAMMING
    PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
    Programming Passive Mode Off
    • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
    • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
    • Open driver door.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
    • Unlock driver door lock knob.
    • Close and open driver door 2 times.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
    Programming Passive Mode On
    • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
    • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
    • Open driver door.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
    • Unlock driver door lock knob.
    • Close and open driver door 4 times.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

    98 ford explorer wont start theft light on while cranking, no fuel presure at fuel rail


    It sounds like the vehicle is in theft mode,did you use a different key? Does the theft light blink really fast with the key off?If the passive anti-theft system has been activated the computer will have to be reset in order to get the vehicle running again.
