Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Does the check engine light come on with the key on? Does the check engine light go off while cranking it over? Can I start by getting your VIN?

The check engine light comes on with the key on and stays on while cranking

Hello and sorry for the delay!!
Thank you for that information.
According to Ford, the computer will turn off the check engine light when it recognizes engine rpm. Since your check engine light is staying on, the crank/rpm signal is not making it back to the computer for some reason. It could be a bad crank sensor, wiring issue or even an issue with the crank sensor reluctor (teeth on trigger wheel). I would go right to the crank sensor and test for a signal while cranking the engine over. This will point you in the right direction.
