    The problem turned out to be with my battery. Once I installed the new one, it reset my anti theft device. Thanks for the information, anyway.

    yes i have a 98 ed bauer expedition it started along time ago you would start the car and it would act like it was possesed the interior light would stay on for a feww minutes and then shut off on its own,,the child lock on the rt side back seat locks itself youll be driving and the locks will go off and on ,, the seatbelt etc lights in dash go on and off and it will beep this only happens maybe once every 3 or 4 wks but the problem that started several months back that i need help with coincidently after we had a new engine installed is that the i go to start it and the theft light comes on stays on not blinks and the truck clicks but wont start it thinks it getting stolen i just keep pushing lock and unlock in and out of the ignition tryying to get it reset i guess and then it finally starts but yesterday it took 25min to start and i couldnt even get it started today so i dont know if i can disconnect it or if its connected to an electrical problem associated with the other issues ,, or is it in the ignition,,, because if its easier i would like to disarm the theft prot permanently thanks

2003 f150 turns over but wont crank, also theft light blinking fast


Usually means the sensor in the lock cylinder is not reading the code in the key.
If the pass key system does not get the right signal from the key the truck will not start.
You might try taking the key off your ring - put it in the lock and turn the switch on - but don't crank it for at least a minute.
There are procedures to reset the anti-theft online - - if you do a search for resetting anti-theft F150 you can read them.

My taurus wont start or even turn over battery connections all ok. my theft light is blinking faster than normal could this be a reason for not starting? if so what do i do or try? im frustrated......


yes the fast blinking theft light indicates that theft mode is activated. you wont be able to start the vehicle until you have the keys reprogrammed at your local ford dealer.

Starter ok no blown fuse. all lights working but it wont start. anti theft light blinking fast os soon as you turn it to on. what is the problem.


it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..
