Your vehicle is equipped with a passive theft deterrent system that utilizes a "pill" embedded in your key along with a receiver contained in the steering column. If the system doesn't recognize your key, the vehicle will crank but not start and the theft light will flash rapidly. If you have another key, try it. Otherwise, you're in for a trip to the dealer where they can either reset the system or troubleshoot it further.

Good luck.

    what a joke from a guru? As* can read an owers manuel :). Easy fix, what a ********!
    Disconnect the battery. Wait 2 minutes for the module to lose all traces of voltage. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Reconnect the battery. Shut the key OFF and press LOCK on the drivers door switch. It's called reinitializing the alarm.

Sounds like anti-theft system problem ! There is a little red light center top of dash pad , When you try to start the vehicle does the light flash fast ? If the vehicle thinks it's being stolen it won't let truck crank over an it turns off the fuel injectors !

On my 2001 Lincoln ls 3.9 security light on dash still flashing rapidly for a minute then pause 1 flash pause 6 flashes with key on. Now when I put key in ignition the rpms and speedometer gauges star

Well I am a certified mechanic and I would pull the air cleaner housing open the throttle shoot some carb cleaner in it and if it starts even if only for few seconds your fuel pump is bad. If it doesn't than you need to scan the car with a scanner for no start codes. You can rent a scanner at most automotive part stores for a deposit and when you return it undamaged you get your money back. Usually costs nothing. But if you don't have any pressure on the fuel rail that is most likely your problem. You can clear all the dashboard codes and lights with a scanner if they don't straiten it out on its own. Disconnect battery for a few minutes sometimes that will clear old codes. Only clear codes if you have found out that the fuel pump was bad otherwise you'll need them codes for figuring out the no start problem. Bryan ASE master certified mechanic.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system

These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel

Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

2001 venture, the security light came on today then so did the ABS light, the airbag light, the brake light and then the fuel, speedometer, and heat gauges began freaking out now the car wont start at all

I had the very same problem with my venture, same year! My problem was the aux wire running from the positive battery terminal had some how fallen out of the bracket (little plastic holder), was rubbing against one of the belt pulleys, and grounding out. It caused my dash to go crazy! I actually took it to auto zone and they found the cable. I replaced it and never had the problem again. One Note however, the only thing it screw up that had to be replaced was the Fuel Gauge Relay which was in the gas tank. It some how screwed this sensor up and my gas gauge was still going wild. 300 bucks to have the tanks dropped emptied and the sensor replaced. Hope this helps.

2000 Ford Expedition wont start

On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.
