Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** I am currently a factory dealer auto mechanic. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

Unfortunately if the theft light is blinking rapidly then the vehicle is not seeing the key in the ignition. Which means either the key is no good, or the vehicle lost the key program. Do you have another key to try? And did you verify fuse 27 is installed correctly and one of the blades did not miss the terminal.

Fuse is in properly. Is is possible an incorrect code entered on the exterior door keypad locked the system?

It will not do that. I have personally entered the wrong code several times on Lincolns and it does not do anything with the anti-theft. Have you checked all other fuses inside and under the hood?

No I have not checked all other fuses. Will a low battery or buildup on terminals cause this

Not so much terminals. But a low battery will. Try a jump pack or jump start if you can.

Same result when jumping...engine does not even attempt to start and security light flashing rapidly when key is turned on

Ok. The engine will not start with the theft light blinking. You need to check ALL the fuses, just in case. If they are good, you need to attempt to have the keys reprogrammed by a dealer or a mobile locksmith.

Just picked it up from the dealer. Key went bad.

Ok. When the theft light blinks usually a key is bad or a fuse has failed. Please take a moment to rate my assistance with the stars above then. Thank you.
