My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

I don't beat around the bush. This is a bad news response.

The light flashing is because the vehicle can;t read the keys and is in a anti-theft no start state. In order to have that turned off, you will need to get a locksmith or pop-a-lock that has a Ford IDS tool to reset and reprogram the vehicle for your keys or have Ford do it and have the PATS system scanned to see what has failed to not allow the keys to be seen. It could be something as simple as power loss from a low battery that needs to be replaced to a more advanced repair of needing to replace the sensor for the keys to be read. The sensors do go out and thie only way to repair them and have them working again is using the Ford IDS scan tool.

I wish there was a better way, but there just isn't in this case. I know what it is like for I have been on that road myself several times with my own Ford vehicle.

touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

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.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey
