Your key has a sensor in it that disables the antitheft device. if you have a new key for it it may not be disabled. Try it while you have the original key on your key ring also and see if it will allow it to start then.

Lincoln tow car 2001 passive anti tip DTC 1260 I replaced pcm.trancevier.instrument cluster.2new ignition key but no communication this module what possible problem this?


No where in the DTC - description does it say anything about replacing any modules . An does not have anything to do with a communication problem ! You need a professional grade scan tool to communicate with the PATS system ! An if you don't know these thing's you better take it to pro !!!!!!!
P1260 - Theft Detected - Vehicle Immobilized Indicates that the passive anti-theft system (PATS) has determined a theft condition existed and the engine is disabled. This DTC is a good indicator to check the PATS for DTCs.
  • Previous theft condition
  • Anti-Theft System failure
Theft indicator flashing rapidly or on solid when ignition switch is in the ON position. Check anti-theft system for DTCs. Typical vehicle symptoms are: Start/Stall or Crank/No Start. NOTE: No crank symptom only on vehicles equipped with PATS starter disable feature

99 ranger won't crank, periodically, has anti theft.


I looked at your security system, it is starter motor disable and fuel injectors. You can usually get the starter crank, but, if it is the security system, it still won't start because of fuel injectors. I don't know any way to bypass security system. You can check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any?

We replaced a ignition switch in a 1997 chevrolet lumina a week ago and now the security light came on and is staying on. what is the problem now?


YOUR THEFT DETERRENT DONT RECOGNIZE THE NEW KEY AND SWITCH.YOU NEED TO TAKE TO DEALERSHIP LET THEM REPROGRAM IT.BECAUSE WHEN SECURITY LIGHT COMES ON WHILE DRIVING CAR THE THEFT DETERRENT SYSTEM AND PCM THINK CAR IS BEING STOLEN WHICH IT COULD SHUT OFF FUEL PUMP DISABLING CAR IN TRAFFIC WHICH CAN BE DANGEROUS.

ANTI THEFT LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING ON AND OFF


Did you steal it? I heard about you thieves who steal cars then put new transmissions in!!
Seriously, try this, it may help...
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded) until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once. (Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.) This should reset the alarm, and reset the grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine. At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way. Just Repeat these steps to place it back to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it, and the lights may flash twice as well. That should do it. Check out www.explorerforum.com

I have dealt with this before and it was the key and it needed the key reprogrammed as you said you were told and it will require the Ford scan tool do set it up.I know it sucks but disableing it I dont believe is an option.
