Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
No,for some reason the theft system is not seeing the keys. There is a transceiver ring
around the ignition cylinder that acts like the antenna and it has a harness that runs along the bottom of the steering column.At the base of the column is a connector for the harness to plug into the dash harness.Sometimes the wires break off at the connector when the tilt steering is moved up and down.Other than that,there is not anything else you can do at home.The IDS laptop or the PDA will need to be used to go further.Sorry I don't have a better answer for you than this. The system you are working with is a tough one to figure out. Good luck,Chuck
You can call and ask them, but they are usually sending the cars to us. When I get them
it is usually a key program or a PATS diagnosis.Like I said,it doesn't hurt to call and ask.If you don't find a locksmith that wants to attempt this,have the car towed in today if you can. Then go down and fill out an early bird drop off form. This will get you in the front of the Monday morning line. It may help you get the car back faster.I'll be on line most of the day,so if you find someone to look at it and need some input,drop me a line.
