Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

Is there an anti theft light flashing on the dash, when you try to start it? have you pulled codes since it would not start?

yea i reset with key but still shows?
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

if the light is flashing when you tr to start it, then this means the computer has lost its programming for the key, have you tried a spare key in this yet?

tried spare key no good would a bad sensor from dpf or cat cause it not to start ,or would the reduced power mode it was in cause it not to start.
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

No, the only thing that will cuse the key light to flash and a no start is the programming of the key in the computer, did you have the battery disconnected when you removed the DPF?

no
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

some how it lost its programming, none the less, the key will need to be reprogrammed into the computer, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come to the car and do this, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars for this, the dealer gets over 200, and you have to tow it to them, but until the computer recognizes the signal from the key, it will not let it start,Tim

just the key reprogramed you think the computer itself is fine
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
also just to make sure if the key is in position 3 and the alarm had been activated what would show on the instrument cluster
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

the light should come on for about 2 seconds, then shut off, if the computer recognizes the key, if it does not, the light will stay on or flash, I do not think the computer is bad, we see this alot on these vehicles, it can lose its programming fr many resons, but I have never had one due to a bad computer,Tim

when i turn key on alarm symbol goes off after about 2 sec or so,.i just started it by leaving key on and i jump the terminals on starter truck runs fine.,if the alarm symbol dissappears after 2 sec wouldn't that mean it recognizes the key.
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

Yes, if the light goes off after 2 seconds, then it is recognizing the key, I thought you said it stayed on??

I just started it by jumping the starter and when i turned it off and tried to restart it, it started with the key.what do you think maybe starter solenoid was stuck.
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 years ago

Yes, it could have been the solenoid, or the nuetral safety switch, is it starting every time now?
