The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on. You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.
Ford products are sensitive to changes in Battery voltage. The system views low Voltage as an attempted theft and makes the Alarm go off.
Remove the Battery, return it with a full charge or new Battery. Some other symptoms would be slow cranking or clicking like a dead battery. The Antitheft reduces starter Voltage to around 7 Volts making starting nearly impossible.
Please rate my info. If all else fails, the Identity in the car memory may no longer match the identity on the car keys. You would need to have a Dealer rematch the keys to the car.
You have got to isolate your problems one by one. Is your crank position sensor working? Yoiu can test it individually or you can plug in a diagnisis interface and crank enine in a raltime test mode and measure engine RPM. If sensor is ok you get revs recorded and you go to next step i.e getting spark at the plugs. The spark is also a series of wiring and interfaces so you start from ignition switch itself to the ICU, power output stage and coil packs. Once you have your spark then worry about the fuel.
Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ? If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.
From what i've seen over the years with the Chryslers i've encountered. Your describing to the "T" what appears to be a bad Crank Sensor. I will bet money that if you replace the crank sensor it will solve your problem. BUT...Also know that a bad fuel pump can do exactly what you describe in your statement. Once the pump get hot it gets to acting stupid, but yet again so can the Crank Sensor. Still, my money is on the Crank Sensor.
yea got get you more troubles just check the alternator is charging well and no battery light on dashboard it indicate the bad alternator monitor your battery if it got old and cannot hold the charge any more you said when you used another one your car turned on
