Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
How many keys do you have for the vehicle?Are you at home or away from home?
Does it do it to both keys?
Does the light flash rapidly when you turn the key to on?
Ok, check the battery in the vehicle. The light will flash once every 3 to 5 seconds when the key is removed from the vehicle and the doors are closed. Since the car clicks, you vehicles battery is the problem. If it was the sercurilock, which we call PATS, the light will flash rapidly when you try to start the vehicle.
Sounds good. Please let me know if it starts the vehicle.
Where is the clicking coming from? Under the hood or under the dash?
Turn the headlights on and try to start the engine. See if the headlights dim while you try to start the engine?
The battery sounds like it is internally shorted. And if it is, the engine will not even start by jump starting.
The theft system will not cause clicking noises under the dash.
Ok. Have the battery tested properly.
