Customer Question

2011 the oil changed but the 'change oil soon msg still flashes...When pushing the ignition button I hit the panel reset button. Anti theft system is now engaged and engine lock won't let me start it. I've tried both of my remote keys.
JA: When was your last oil change?
Customer: yesterday
JA: Are you fixing your Taurus yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Not fixing anything myself. Need to know how to disengage the anti theft system.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: that's all, just my car thinks I'm trying to steal it.

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

Disconnect both battery cables (positive and negative) and hold them together for 15 minutes. Then reconnect one at a time, positive first then negative. This should reset the system
