Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am John, a Ford dealer technician.
I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.
Does the engine spin over... nanananananananan. Or just na. If it is spinning over you might have flooded the engine. The way to clear this out is to hold the gas pedal to the floor and start it. Let it spin over for 30 seconds then let it loose. If it still does not start let it sit for a few minutes and try this again. If you still have a problem you will need to have the computer scanned to see if you have something else causing the problem such as a bad fuel pump or a bad pcm relay. Many things can cause a no start and the starting point on diagnosis is to scan the system. This gets you in the ballpark so you can pinpoint the cause.
If you have any more questions please feel free to ask, it's what I'm here for!
important to me so please leave accurate feedback for others to see my job performance.
The theft light was the thing that I needed! You probably just have a security system issue where it has lost memory of the keys. Disregard the stuff in the last post. Unfortunately there is no way to reset the anti-theft system yourself. This is an iron clad system and only the dealer can access and program. You are going to need to take it to a dealer to have the keys reprogrammed. If this is not the issue they will be able to scan the anti theft system to see what is causing the problem. Ford kept the market on this system so only they would be able to service it. Alot of car companys are doing this kind of thing now to keep their customers as a captive customer.
Sometimes they just flood from a low battery, or the computer just gets out of whack. It would be a good idea to install a new set of plugs to help keep this from happening again. If your theft light was flashing you have a problem there also and you should really get that checked out before it gets you stuck in a parking lot somewhere.
Thanks for the accept! Positive feedback is also greatly appreciated as it lets others see my job performance.
