Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

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.

take this to the dealer and have them scan the system door ajar switches, one or more is sticking, this is the problem with the alarm most likely as well, the door ajar switches (there are 6 on a 4 door) are twisted into the door latch inside the door without scanning the GEM (generic electronic module, controls locks and windows and wipers) you would have to pull all the door panels and taligate and test a each switch, a very expensive time consuming job.

The theft light blinking fast because there is a problem with the PATS ,(passive antitheft system). You either have a bad chip in one of your keys,PATS transceiver on ignition cylinder or computer. If it is a key you would have to have them programmed into system which requires you to have 2 keys and certain diagnostic equipment to program them into sytem. I would take it to your service provider or someone who has the equipment to do this like a ford or lincoln, mercury dealer.Have a good one!
