This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

I had same problem on my 2002 explorer. Its either the computer module, or the electric solenoid on the transfer case. In my case it was both. The computer module I had done twice in 14 months.

Have you another key and fob ?

Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss

good luck !

close the door and put the key in the door lock and unlock the door ... that should stop the anti theft and your van should start unless the battery is bad.

The theft light flashes when the is off If it is flashing when the key is on I would think you don't have power in the correct position in the ignition.Check fuses and wiring.

2000 ford xlt 4.0 Is it normal for the theft device light to blink when sitting in the SUV with key out when I put key in it stays on


It should blink fast any time the key is removed or in the off position. When you turn the key to on it will be on steady for a few seconds to show that the light works. Once you start the vehicle the light should not be on or flashing.

Anti theft will stop it from starting. Try locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key to reset .

2000 ford explorer car starts while theft light flashing runs very rough starving for gas shuts off . changed the fuel already.


Theft light has something to do with the anti theft security system. I know that on GM vehicles, when the TRANSPONDER in the key does not give the correct signal or when the ignition reads the signal wrong, the computer will shut off the injectors or fuel pump. Sounds like this is your problem. THEFT light is an immobilizing problem. Thats why the truck wont run.

The theft light flashing indicates there was a problem detected with the anti theft system. The computer will have to be scan tested and either repaired or reprogrammed. This is a very complicated procedure and requires specialized equipment. You will probably have to have it towed to the dealer or a very well equiped private repair facility. You might want to try leaving the key on for about an hour or try another key but this rarely works. Good Luck.
