Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** with the exhaust hooked back up, the starter s=does not even turn over?
Is there an anti theft light flashing on the dash, when you try to start it? have you pulled codes since it would not start?
if the light is flashing when you tr to start it, then this means the computer has lost its programming for the key, have you tried a spare key in this yet?
let me know,Tim
No, the only thing that will cuse the key light to flash and a no start is the programming of the key in the computer, did you have the battery disconnected when you removed the DPF?
some how it lost its programming, none the less, the key will need to be reprogrammed into the computer, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come to the car and do this, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars for this, the dealer gets over 200, and you have to tow it to them, but until the computer recognizes the signal from the key, it will not let it start,Tim
the light should come on for about 2 seconds, then shut off, if the computer recognizes the key, if it does not, the light will stay on or flash, I do not think the computer is bad, we see this alot on these vehicles, it can lose its programming fr many resons, but I have never had one due to a bad computer,Tim
Yes, if the light goes off after 2 seconds, then it is recognizing the key, I thought you said it stayed on??
Yes, it could have been the solenoid, or the nuetral safety switch, is it starting every time now?
Anytime, let me know if you need more help,Tim
