I have a security light on the dashboard
Ford Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Here is something to try. you will need a minimum of 2 keys. Place vehicle on a battery charger. Leave the key on for 15 minutes or until security light goes out. do this 3 times. Yes 45 minutes. leave key 1 on for 30 seconds. switch keys. on for 30 seconds. back to original key 30 seconds. Key off and try to start. If this doesnt work you may have to find a shop that can program keys.

What Customers are Saying:

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.

MollyUSA

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
