Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Will not start or make any noise!

Battery was bad; replaced it and now the security symbol flashes when I turn the key to start-no clicking or any noise to attempt to start. Could this be the key with a chip is bad? I cannot see the chip but was told it could be bad. Or is it something in the security system that needs to be reset and if so how is it done? thanks for any info.

IN 2000 when focus was introduced as a 2001, the model had 11 yes 11 recalls. the car is over all still a great car for the money. Since the 2001 year model, focus has made a much better image for it'self. However one of the problems was the ignition/nuteral safty switch, chip whatever you want to call it. It was one of the recalls. If you find out for sure that is the problem, don't let them B.S. you @ the ford dealer they will try to deny the recalls & maybe even the problem. That is Fords policy. I know this because I sold Fords in 2000 for four months. Now keep in mind it could also be your starter. try hitting your starter with a hammer while someone is trying to start it. But be ready to disconnect your battery quickly incase your starter does not disengage,so you don't have a electrical fire.Thats about the only info. I can give you off hand. Goodluck.

Security light flashes yellow then red. Please Help!


For some odd reason Chevy sometimes has there stereos connected to the security system. Check the fuse to make sure it didn't blow. You probably have vats security which is the worst thing ever made. I had that on my 02 firebird and had nothing but vats issues constantly.

Not getting power to the starter


Have you put a code reader in to help you detect the problem.? I know this sounds silly, but does the horn work? Check the manual for battery relay.

The car want start i think its the key because someone tried to steal the car before


IF YOU SEE CAR SECURITY LIGHT ON.WHEN YOU TURN KEY TO THE START POSITION.NO STARTER NOISE.TURN THE IGNITION KEY IN SWITCH TO THE RUN POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES.IF SECURITY LIGHT IS OFF.TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH FOR 5 SECONDS.THEN START ENGINE.IS IT STARTS OR NOT. YOUR SECURITY THEFT SYSTEM IS GOING BAD THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO REPLACE BODY CONTROL MODULE WITH NEW IGNITION KEYS AND LOCK CYLINDER AND SWITCH.THEY HAVE TO PROGRAM IT IN TO PCM SO CAR WILL START.MAKE SURE BATTERY IS GOOD IT HAS 12.5 VOLTS AND BATTERY CABLES CLEAN AND TIGHT.BECAUSE A BAD STARTER OR SOLENOID SWITCH AND WEAK BATTERY WILL CAUSE NO START UP.

It will not start or even turn over when I try to start it


Vehicle not all the way in Park or Neutral? Bad battery? Bad battery cable? Bad Transmission range selelector switch? Bad Starter? Bad starter relay? Onboard security system disabling start circuit? Locked-up engine?

What is working and what is not? Headlamps? Interior dome lamps? Radio? Warning lamps on dash? Is the "Security" light flashing?

Is it making any noises when you turn the key?

VW Passat failing to start/security alarm issues are they linked?


Usually on the passat, if the immobiliser is on, there is a yellow key symbol flashing on the clocks as you try and start it. Do the doors unlock with the remote key? If no flashing light and the key fob working, i would be looking at possibly starter relay. This is either located under the fuse box or under a plastic cover near the windscreen under the bonnet.

Security lights flashing after battery cable removal-no start


Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.

I do not have a vehicle manual so need to know: The car will not start --has been starting with hesitation for few days--and on the dash is a red flashing light with a key symbol--what does this...


If you find a red key flashing it means that the car has got antitheft system fitted. Is your car alarmed? What about the key, has it got a remote?
