My car has the theft light on it’s a 2014 mustang what can I do to fix ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you tried to reset the computer?

How can I reset the computer ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried erasing all the codes. fixing the ground on the batterie and just little things I seen online to try my next step was getting another key but I wanna see if there’s other ways I can fix .

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That’s basically my only issue . I just wanna know if there’s other things I can try before paying for a new key

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
