Customer Question

My 2003 Taurus24v ohc will not start all the time. A light like a gear comes on. My mechanic says it seems to think it has been stolen. Any idea how to fix this?

That light you are seeing is a warning light for the transmission. Below is page 12 from the owners manual. You should check the vehicles modules for trouble codes and post them on this page.
