SOURCE: anti-theft won't deactivate
does the luck and won't start come at same time?
actually there is not way to get rid of the antitheft but if you have two keys for htis car try using only one key some time copies just disprogram the system and if you can't do anything i will recomend you to call a mobile locksmith guy they have the machine to reprogram your key and it is so much shiper than towing it to dealer and pay their crazy prices

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.
2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.
If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.
OK.. I hope this information work for you.
Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

Yes I agree it's the 'smart key'. Normally when you buy an explorer new, you will get 3 keys. 1 of the keys is a valet key.
If you were to copy another key that has a smart chip (transponder) in it, the new key won't work until you 'program' the third (new) key. To program it you need the original 2 keys that work.
The only other thing could be that there was a remote start in the vehicle and there could be something wrong with the module that bypasses the transponder. If there is a remote start in the vehicle you might be lucky to some extent if it still works.
If you move the shifter hard and it worked before, like you said, there could also be damage to the wires that goto the key cylinder, the reciever for the transponder in the key. Try having someone hold the key in start and use the tilt wheel, that too will tell you theres damaged wires if it starts.
Unfortunately you probably will have to bring the vehicle to a ford dealer to get additional keys programmed or the damaged part replaced.
It shouldn't cost too, too much. Just be glad you don't have a Saab, replacement key's are $145 Ea!
If your inclined, you can dissassemble the plastic shroud around the steering column and look for damaged wires coming from the black ring around the key down the the connector under the dash.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

does it have an autostart? if you have two keys (this will only work if you have two) turn the key to on in the ignition and wait till the theft light goes out do this for each key this may fix your problem.

Please keep in mind....
This and other how-to articles are provided for informational purposes only. Perform the procedures at your own risk. FordF150.net is not responsible for any damage that may occur as a result of performing procedures outlined in any article. Please be sure to read and understand the entire article before doing this.
These instructions will save you a lot of money. The dealer wants at least $50 just to do this simple procedure.....
To start off, I'll explain a bit about what a PATS key is, what it does, and why this might concern you.
PATS is an acronym that stands for Passive Anti-Theft System (Ford also calls this SecuriLock). It is also called a transponder key. It is a security feature found on most (if not all) new Ford products, and what it does is disable your vehicle's starter unless your specially programmed key is used to start the vehicle. There is a computer chip inside of the key, and without that you will NOT be able to start the vehicle -- even if you have a regular (non-PATS) key with the correct cuts, it will not work.
For convenience, I'm also including a list of other vehicles that these instructions apply:
Ford Contour '98-up
Ford Crown Victoria '97-up
Ford Escort 99-up
Ford Excursion '00-up
Ford Expedition '98-up
Ford Explorer '98-up
Ford Focus '00-up
Ford Mustang '96-up
Ford Ranger '98-up
Ford Taurus '96-up
Ford Windstar '98-up
Lincoln Continental '98-up
Lincoln LS '00-up
Lincoln Mark VIII '98-up
Lincoln Navigator '98-up
Lincoln Town Car '98-up
Mercury Grand Marquis '97-up
Mercury Mountaineer '98-up
Mercury Mystique '98-up
Mercury Sable '96-up
NOTE: These instructions may apply to more or less vehicles than those listed above. I cannot confirm that these procedures work for every year and model listed. See your dealer if to confirm this.
On-Board Programming Method "B"
for Ford keys (1996 -early 1998 Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)
If you want to initiate a new master key....
1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen minutes.
2. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder OFF and then back to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
3. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back ON (RUN) position. The dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
4. After the security light stops flashing the third time, the new key has been programmed into the vehicles computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the vehicles computer.
If you want to add a key....
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within 15 seconds, insert the new key and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming the key into the vehicle.
5. Don't attempt to start the vehicle with any key for at least 1 minute.
