You must use a dealer style scan tool, the STAR diagnostic scanner, or a Launch X-431. That's the only aftermarket scan tool that I am aware of, that has the System Immobilizer options on it. Not even a Snap On Modis Scanner can do it. I should know, I have one as well as the Launch scanner. I hope this helps.

run the fault codes
it may be a broken cam shaft , cam/crank position sensors or immobiliser not operational

Try using a scanner to reset the ECM for the engine start problem ( immobiliser program corrupted). it may reset the radio but I suspect that you will need a radio code to get it to work.

I have a 2005 Ford Focus se s ltr there is a light with a car and lock that blinks until I turn the key on then I get 5 beeps and the car will not turn over. I had a bad battery and replaced it and is not...

Sounds like your immobiliser has a fault and is engaging when it should not be. One of the functions of the immobiliser is to engage when the battery power has been disconnected, this is an anti theft precaution against someone trying to tamper with the electrics when attempting to hot wire the car. Have Ford reset the immobiliser anti theft system.
