If it is just a relearn and you have no issues with the security system the procedure to "teach" the vehicle the transponder code for the "chip" in your key is as follows. Turn the ignition and just turn the key enough so the engine turns for just a second. Not enough to try and start the vehicle jusy enough to "bump" the engine quickly. Once you bump the engine, release the key and leave the key in the "on" or "running" position. Your security light should be flashing if you're dealing with a security issue but that doesn't happen 100 percent of the time. Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. If the security light is on or flashing it should shut off after 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes turn the key off and without removing the key turn it to where you bump the engine like before and repeat the 10 minute wait time. You will need to do this 3 times totalling 30 minutes. The 3rd time turn the key back off and without removing the key try and start the vehicle. This is the only procedure that can be done without diagnostic equipment and providing you don't have an issue with a part in the security system or there isn't another problem, this should reprogram your vehicles security system. Hope this works for you and hope I was able to help....

SOURCE: anti theft light came on, car would not start,

the manual says to put the key in the ignition, turn on all the way, but don't start the car and leave for 10 minutes until the theft light stops flashing. turn off all the way and star it up. good luck.

2003 f150 turns over but wont crank, also theft light blinking fast


Usually means the sensor in the lock cylinder is not reading the code in the key.
If the pass key system does not get the right signal from the key the truck will not start.
You might try taking the key off your ring - put it in the lock and turn the switch on - but don't crank it for at least a minute.
There are procedures to reset the anti-theft online - - if you do a search for resetting anti-theft F150 you can read them.

Alot of the time the anti theft security can actually disable your starter. Check to see if there is a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a little picture of a car with a lock thru it. This would be a dead give away of the security problem. Check out this link for info and DO IT YOURSELF solutions to this problem.
