Does the Dash display "THEFT" or "SECURITY"?
How many Factory Mercury Ignition Keys do you have for this car?

I believe it is Factory installed (my daughter bought it used.
"Theft" flashes on and off all the time.
She has two keys
She arrived at a destination and the car would not start

At this point, if the "THEFT" Light is still flashing when attempting to start:
Disconnect Battery Positve & Negative Cables, for apprx 1 hour
Be sure Battery is "fully charged"
IF you are not sure, charge or Jumper Battery
Reconnect & try starting
IF the "THEFT" Light continues to flash, then there is a issue with the Transponder of the Key & the Factory Security System
Use of Dealer Scan Tool is needed to Test & Program
apprx 1 hour labor
Be sure to have "both Keys" Programmed as "Master Keys"

No I had it towed to a dealership
Expert:  Don - Mo Lurch replied 1 year ago.

that will likely be the best, ***** ***** appears the Transponder is not communicating from what you have posted & the Battery is good
let me know if you need further
