For some reason it's not allowing me to make the phone call to you so just answer my question is your theft light flashing rapidly in the dash when you turn on the key?

it is flashing
Lincoln Mechanic: Davehop, Ford Master Technician replied 10 months ago
Okay if the theft light is flashing that means that the computer is not recognizing your key do you happen to have a spare key that you could try to start the car with?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
