    when you do the 10 min. reset. go ahead and lock and unlock your drivers door, using the key. this could be the reason for the security issue .

Try turning the key to the run position but do not try to crank it. Leave the key on for approx. 15 minutes.Watch the security light.When and if it becomes solid (not flashing). Turn the key to the off position and wait 5 seconds then try to crank.Good Luck!!!

Take the Original Ignition key out to the car. Get in it and turn the key on. Every light should light up like your going to start it. The factory security light will flash. Leave the ignition on until it stops flashing. Should take about 10-15 min to do it. once it does, shut the key off and then turn it over to start the car.

What Year ? The engine turns over but won't start ? Is this the problem SECURITY light lit or flashing ? If SECURITY light is on the PCM/ECM - engine computer disables the fuel injectors ,so it won't start . If the SECURITY light is on there is codes stored in the PCM/ECM or the theft deterrent module . Your husband messed with something he shouldn't have .

Anti theft light is flashing truck wont start


Hate to say it but the only way you can fix that is by having a ford dealership figure out what's going on. If you mess with the security system or anything that feeds it data your truck will lock out. Been there, done that, will never mess with my auto start ever again.

I have a 96 cavalier.it wouldnt start by using the ignition key,so i shorted the solenoid and it started...got home and it still wouldnt start,so i did the same thing and it started,then all the warning...


it can be the ignition switch or the neutral safety switch. put the transmission in neutral to see if it will start, if it does then the neutral safety switch is bad. if not then check your ignition switch

Turn your key to the "on" position. Your security light will be flashing. Leave it in the on position and wait for 10 minutes. The security light will stop flashing, and it will reset itself. Turn the key back to the off position before trying to start it again.

If the security light is flashing when that happens, you need to turn the key to the ON position, and let it sit for 10 minutes, so it can reset the security code. Start it up as normal and let it idle for 5 minutes.

Ford ranger 2004 dont start


i had the same problem and figured out that i was using my spare key and for some reason the spare they gave me didnt work in the ignition bc it was a programmed key. try and find the original key if you do not have it. otherwise you might have to get a new one from the dealership. :( $$$
