Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** was the code?
Is the theft light flashing rapidly when trying to start?
Let me know, thanks Scott
Does the theft light flash rapidly, or does it go off?
Ok if it is blinking rapidly, the PATS system is keeping the engine from starting because it thinks a theft is taking place. Does the instrument cluster power up ok, light come on, check engine ect?
Is the battery charged up ok? Have you tried jump starting it?
Have you tried holding the accelerator to the floor while cranking to clear the engine of excess fuel?
Have you pulled the plugs to see if they are wet with fuel?
I suspect the engine is flooded, I would remove the front 3 plugs and inpsect for wetness, dry them out and reinstall and floor the accel pedal while cranking and it should start.
Sometimes you can smell the fuel sometimes you can't, if you remove the plugs and they are wet then you will know for sure.
Then we will look elsewhere.
Unless you want to pull them out now? I'm still here....
Well then I don't understand what you want me to do, this question remains open as long as you want, I am trying to help with diagnosis, but we don't know for sure if the plugs are fouled, fuel pressure is good, or too high. We just need to eliminate some things first.
