Replaced steering column and ignition and now it wont start

Check wires and make sure all are hooked together properly and none are being pinched or broke. When you turn the key on do you have power if yes check starter solenoid wire for power if no check wires and fuses

My 98 ford explorer wont crank theft light is blinking real fast and radio and everything works

Whats happening is your PATS (Passive Anti Theft System or security system) is not programmed and can't read the code that is being transmitted from inside your key. There is only 2 solutions to this and one is going to cost you money... sorry. We'll start with the free solution.

1. First thing is that you will need 2 keys that are or were programmed to your vehicle. You are going to have to cycle your keys and you cant fool the system by using only one. Insert the first key and turn it to the run position for approximately 6 seconds then remove it and within 5 seconds insert the second key and do the same thing. Pull that key out. Now your vehicle should start with both keys and the theft light should be back to normal.

If this doesn't work option 2 is you have to take it to a Ford dealership and they will have to fix it for you. Hopefully this isn't the road you have to take. I work at Ford and am one of the few in our dealership who program keys. All the best and I hope solution 1 works for ya.

I have a 2005 Ford Explorer 4X4 it won´t

Disconnect the battery ground for 15 minutes then reconnect it and try to start the engine. Did you mean to say you activated the starter solenoid? If you did, was the ignition key in the on position. If you are getting fuel and spark it should have started. Also, try to start the engine with the transmission in neutral. Find the starter relay in the fuse box and swap it with another relay to see if that helps. Check all the fuses for a blown fuse.
