Hello, do you have another key to try? Does the red THEFT indicator flash fast when the key is turned to on or its an issue with an amber antitheft warning lamp?

For some reason the call fails... Yes the anti theft seems to be faster but I can go and check in the car if you lemme know please what all to check so I can do at once..
This remote worked intermittently earlier and then stopped. Now, when I put the key, while the starter is attempting to start the car, and I turn the key once, it automatically cranks and start the car. This means the system is not broken, it;'s only not getting some signal or something. And the antenna on the rearview mirror top seems to be loose from one end maybe broken, not sure. But I changed the battery on the FOB

Ok I need to know if its a problem with the red THEFT lamp for the PATS system or a problem with the regular amber antitheft lamp. It cranks and will not start?

Which remote is not working or is this a remote starter issue?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It does NOT crank. It turns the lights on and beeps like it does for seat belt, inside the car a few times and then it sort of dies away. It does not crank or start. Unless I put the key in and turn it up once (not all the way, just one step) - and then, in this case only, it cranks automatically like it should and starts fine..... strange.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it's the remote starter issue only
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Far as I remember it's the RED THEFT light that blinks, never seen the Amber but I will go and check now
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 4 months ago

Is it a factory remote starter? So it starts normally otherwise, only an issue with the remote starter?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
there's also a push button on the dash, seems like its definitely manually installed, and a red light on dashboard, red LED light that flashes, these two are manual installations, I don't know where these were installed but i think these come with the OEM FORD Remote starter... Online someone said if this button is pushed a few times in sequence it can sort things out but didn't for me.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it's a factory remote starter of FORD. Yes, the car starts normally, everything working, only with remote starter it doesnt. I need remote starter working for winters.
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 4 months ago

Ok m not familiar with the remote start you are talking about, I thought you had a PATS issue. Ill opt out and let someone else help you
