John Mc :

Hi, I am John Mc, a Ford dealer tech. I hope I can help you quickly and accurately. One moment while I work on your problem.

John Mc :

If the security light is flashing rapidly and it won't start there isn't much you can do. For some reason either the computer has lost memory of your keys, your key has failed or there is a problem with your pats anti theft system. I hate to tell people this but you will have to bring to a dealer for repair. These systems are propriatary and only ford dealers have the equipment to access and repair them. Also there is nothing the user can do on your end to make it work. I know this is not what you wanted to hear but anything else would just be wasting time.

JACUSTOMER-paukwwka- :

Sorry John, it dos'nt help, I was expecting an easier method. I hope you are not thinking of

John Mc :

I wish there was an easier way but this is how Ford designed them. To be hard to access for theives. Unfortunately this also causes the customer to not be able to access the systems. Many car brands have gone to this type of system. Sorry for not helping more but this is all I can do.

JACUSTOMER-paukwwka- :

Am I still in debted to you for the amount of $18? I hope not

John Mc :

No, not if you are not satisfied.
