Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, when the car wont start have you noticed if the red key icon is flashing fast or does it come on steady when the key is turned to the on position and goes off after a few seconds? Does it matter if the shifter is in park or neutral it still wont start?Have you tried a different ignition key with the same results?
Ok it could be a key going bad, need to verify if the key icon flashes, it should have set memory codes when checked if it did have a key issue.Otherwise it might just be a starter going bad. Would need to verify power to the starter motor when it wont crank.
I gotcha, if it is a security system issue it should be setting a diagnostic trouble code, or one of the modules in the vehicles network(there are several that cross communicate) would have some sort of code or pending code stored for a starting issue or security system issue that may only be able to be retrieved by a dealership style scan tool
