My Ford Dealership has told us a few things to try but we still haven't been able to clear the anti-theft system. The truck has set for 3 years and the battery was dead. We changed the battery and have tried locking and unlocking the truck with the remote. We don't have remote to start the truck automatically. These are regular keys, no chips in them. We have tried locking the truck, horn beeps and then we unlock it. Held both lock/unlock down at the same time and then tried putting the key in the ignition. the system shows it is learning the key and then the theft starts blinking again. I have tried this with 2 keys and get the same response with both keys.

We are out in the country so getting it to a Ford Dealer is not a real good option. We are trying to fix this truck for our disabled brother-in-law. It's his only means of transportation so we really need to try to fix it here if possible. Any help you could give would be very much appreciated.

Hello, it has a red theft lamp that blinks fast when you put the key to the on position but the keys you have dont have security chips in them to prove out the theft system?
