The passlock is having some issues you can try and reset it with this procedure
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key
.
If this does not work then the ignition tumbler and passlock may need replaced.

2003 Ford Focus PATS light not blinking and car won't start


I don't believe there is a problem either.
Under normal conditions the security light should come on then go off if the correct key is being used.
The problem could be the key switch or the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic trans. There are other possible causes.

Security light blinks car won't start disconnected the battery used a different key still won't start


need to reprogram the security system. turn the key to start position then to run . let the key stay on until the light stops flashing. repeat these steps 3 times then the car should start if there is not a problem with the pass-lock sensor in the ignition switch or the BCM( body control module).

When I try to start car, it won't start and security light blinks. I'v e had to ignition switches put on before and I had a new key made. Car still won,t start.


If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.
