When you turn the key on, does the check engine light come on? Does the glow plug light come on?

Does the starter crank at all or nothing?

Do the starter cable look good on the starter itself?

I had the chip tested in the key and that was fine. theft light is constantly blinking when key is on. Put a decoder on vehicle and it could connect to computer. also when key is turned on motor do not turn over and no sound from fuel pump.
All other accesories work fine. Do not have code for anti-theft, was not given from Dealer. This truck is used.

You just narrowed it down. If the theft light is flashing when you turn the key, the PATS system can't read the key. Constant flashing means the PATS lost it's programming due to a fault in the system. You'll need the Ford IDS tool with programming to see what the fault is with the PATS system and reprogram the keys to the vehicle.

The module is acting up or the transceiver for the key is. There is not diagnostic steps you can really do for this without the Ford scan tool. That is the bad part of this.
