  1. With the key on, is the theft light on or flashing?
  2. With the key on is the check engine light on?
  3. While cranking is the check engine light off?
  4. With the key on, is there one pin at the data link connector with battery voltage?

I need to correct some info the check engine is on with the key on during cranking the check engine stays on I will check the data link power
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Look over the diagram below.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/ignitionswitch.png

Do you understand how to test each wire for each key position?

The check engine light remaining on while cranking indicates the PCM is not getting a crank sensor signal.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

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.
