Hello when you turn the key to on does the red theft lamp in the dash flash fast or does it come on steady for a few seconds and then turn off?

When the key is in the light keeps blinking every few seconds. It doesn't stop
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

ok if it blinks fast when the key is turned to the on position there is an issue with the pats antitheft system not reading the security chip in the ignition key. If you have a second key see if it does the same thing. Either there is a problem with a chip in the key or the transceiver that reads the key on the steering column has an issue. A local locksmith that can cut and program pats ignition keys can come to you and resolve this issue cheaper than goin to the dealer. you must have two good keys to reprogram the pats system

We have two keys and a remote start system. Nothing works. Everything was working fine until tonight all of the sudden.
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

With the theft lamp blinking it is indicating a pats system fault. It will disable the vehicle from starting/running. if the theft lamp stays on steady and turns off with the key in the on position it is a different issue

Is there anything we can do ourselves or is it a dealer/locksmith issue?
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

dealer or locksmith if its a pats system issue, you need scan tool to check codes and program new keys if needed

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.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
