Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer working afternoon till just after midnight.

With the key in the run position, what is the theft light doing?

What brand remote start is this?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
theft light is on, the remote came with the car, no clue about the brand, can't tell you either because my son is delivering the spare keys to my wife, he has to drive 4 1/2 hours to do that
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
my wife tells me that it appears that the key lost its programming
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

Is the theft light on solid or is it flashing rapid with the key in the run position?

Can you have her look on the back of the remote to see if it says FoMoCo Ford Motor Company?

You said it wants to start with the remote meaning it cranks but does not start?

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
