I have this same problem. It has been happening for about 3 years now. More so when it is cold but it really doesn't matter. The theft system light flashes and you have to wait 10 mins for it to reset and hope that it starts that time. I have sat for 3 1/2 hours before waiting every 10 mins to try again. I have no idea what is wrong with the stupid thing =(

Anti theft wont let me start car


The problem may not be with anti-theft but with a bad fuel pump,cam/crank sensor etc. Also, you may try unlocking the drivers door with the key. On most cars that is the standard method for disabling the security system.

Theft light blinks fast engine turn over but wont start how can we turn the theft light off


You can't will have to be repaired, check and see if the chip on top of the key did not fall out, if not more then likely chip is damage, most mobile lock smith have the computer to reprogram a new chip to your theft system, being you have the key won't be that much, between $60.00 - $100.00.

1998 ford expedition wont start. theft like is


If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.

Anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo and will not start now. Tried unhooking battery to reset, but no luck. Will not crank from jumping off either. Battery is good, all lights and the radio...


I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.

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.
