It is a problem with your ignition switch. will need to be replaced and new one has to be programmed to the computer so not a do it yourself repair.

Won;t start red blinking light is on checked staarter relay and fuse #3 they were good help me please i need my car


Red blinking light , anti-theft system ! Your best bet is take it to the dealer (tow) . This starting system is controlled by a computer , be it a BCM - body control module or the PCM powertrain control module . Very complicated messaging between the BCM an PCM on CCD serial data bus Takes place . You need a factory scan tool to diagnose these type problems .

Car want start full of gas and the theft light keep coming on and i dont have the manual and im stuck at the gas station is there a button to push or somthing


you have really problem of starting the engine once theft light comes on. these because of the security system cuts off power of the fuel pump. you can cut the yellow wire(tape it) on the steering colume just to make the engine start and the car be use.
after, if you want to put your car in standard change the Anti-theft system.

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.

Absolutely! If the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) "thinks" you are trying to steal the car, it is SUPPOSED to keep it from starting. The problem is that the PATS thinks you are a car theif when you are not.
Below is a table straight out of the service manual for your vehicle. Please note that the FIRST action that must be taken for any PATS system malfunction is to scan the computer system for fault codes.

TURN SIGNAL, BRAKE & HAZARD LIGHTS


No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below:
Troubleshooting Procedure
To start troubleshooting this problem:
  • Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
  • Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
  • When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.

not knowing what the prior owner did, you do have a problem, you might try to remove that fuse, disconnect the battery and re-try it, if still NO-START and the THEFT light is flashing it because it lost memory for the key code and will have to be recoded at your dealer

Theft system is stuck on


disconnect your battery for six Min's and re attach the post clips. this will reset the alarm board function. if the problem persist, the theft system is failing and will unfortunately have to be replaced or deactivated.
