So when you turn the key ON, the theft light flashes rapidly?

Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok. Does the check engine light turn on when the key is turned to the ON position?

check engine light is on

The car has been sitting since at least Sept or Oct
Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

Oh ok. Assuming a mouse did not get in there and eat wires, then likely it had a dead battery or no battery in it and the key lost its program to the car.

What do you mean the key lost its program to car
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No I thought it might been the battery
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My husband had a bad battery in it before so it was replaced.

Could I forgot to connect something after the serpentine belt was replaced when a bypass pully was put on?
Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

The keys have a security chip in them. It gets programmed to the car. The car only can start when it reads the correct key with a chip. WHen the theft light flashes it means the car is not seing a programmed key in the ignition. A dead battery for a while can cause the keys to loose program.

I doubt doing bypass pulley caused anything. Unless you somehow blew a fuse but I doubt it.

There's no chip in the key or the other spare
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I had the car jumped back in Nov it sreatch real load and then notice there was air in the power steering and that the a.c. pully wasn't working correctly. So I replaced it with the bypass pully and all pully move now. Now it won't crank over like before
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
When I put the key in light goes off but car won't crank
Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

The original question says "anti theft light to go off"?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

And if there is an anti-theft light then there is a chip in the key

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Lincoln Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 4 months ago

Sure. Have you checked the starter?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

You may have several different things going on and it's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is going on.

If the security light in the center of the dash is flashing then security is active, but you don't mention the alarm actually going off. If the alarm was going off then the horn would honk and lights would flash for two minutes, the engine would start and die three times and then lock the starter out. Is this what actually happened?
