You may need to reset the codes in the body computer, the loss of power will be the stored code or just drive the car but it will take a while for the computer to clear itself, this could take a week or two of driving, or again have it scanned and see what the codes are, i think it will be acode with antitheft power loss. hope this is helpful. good luck.

My 2002,ford focus se 5 SPD won't start at all no sound when key is turned. When key is in start position no dash lights come on and my anti theft light above hazards blinks continuously any ideas?

Verify battery condition by turning on headlights and seeing if they are bright. If ok, the theft system may be activated. Try locking and unlocking doors with the key fob. This will usually reset the theft deterent system.

You are going to have to get the security system reset. You will probably have to contact the dealership if you don't have the code.

I have a 1998 ford mustang 5 speed. the theft light keeps blinking and it wont start. can you help me

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!
