I got one of those cars. I feel your pain. If the security light keeps blinking it will not start.

First try the unlock sequence with the remote from outside the car... That fails try unlocking the drivers door with the orginal key and then try cranking. If the security light stays blinking your screwed.

Does the bus light come on?

    Here a link to alarms >

    If the PCM does not have communication with BCM the engine will not run > that would be the no bus code. The body control module will kill the engine in a heart beat if it does not see all the required parameters. Very little can be found on the net about how all this works... I know for a fact if you stick another computer in there it will kill the computer in about 4 seconds. Unless you know where to get a fix all computer. (I do) Dodge says bring it back to them and they will install a new ECM and charge you out the rear to do it.

    taking battery leads off won't work, junk yard ECM won't work unless you get the same BCM that came with the ECM. off the same car... Just don't try your buddies ecm or will be toast. Just love them dodges. Don't you? Need some good feedback or no more help. Thanks!

How do i bypass the anti theft system in a 2002 Stratus

Unfortunately if you are referring to the factory anti-theft system - it will have to have computers replaced. Once the Engine Computer sees a Theft Alarm request it will remain there forever and it will shut down the fuel system until seeing an OK To Start from the Theft Alarm.
If it is after market alarm - find it and disconnect wiring - restore connections to original
does that help?
If you are having trouble with the system? Make sure the battery is good and fully charged. There are entry switches on the back side of the lock cylinders on both front doors (probably knocked off when the door is "Slim Jim'd") and the trunk lock.
If your battery is dead and you try to jump it - you will have to turn off the alarm again after hooking up the jumper

07 ford focus anti theft light flashes all the time

If the security or anti-theft light is flashing when you attempt to start your car, and the engine does not crank or does not start, you have an anti-theft problem. The system may not be recognizing your key's key-less entry signal, or there may be a fault in the anti-theft module or wiring.
There is a reset procedure to stop this anti-theft light flashing.many a times this helps The reset procedure is as follows:-- Reset the alarm by locking and unlocking the drivers side door.Do this a couple of times and then check it will reset the factory security system . If the reset procedure does not helps then its time to get the anti-theft system checked.There is a short circuit in the anti-theft system wiring.

How to reset car computer on a 2005 dodge stratus

this could possibly be the key. This vehicle has a key that need to be programed to the car. If the theft light or key light is blinking on the dash, this is why you have no spark of fire. We have had some just loose programing(don't ask me how or why) ....Check the anti theft before you go any further. may save you much diagnostic time.
