Tried this myself today. Works fine although the back of the new belt does slightly contact the bypassed AC pump pulley. Ran the car for awhile and checked the belt. Detected no scuffing, heating, or other damage. Would still feel more comfortable though if it didn't contact that pulley at all. Cheers.

How to bypass anti theft in 2004 ford taurus?

You can not disable it so let's start now to get to the problem//// you have original transponder keys or aftermarket (if aftermarket check to see if it has a battery in the key by looking at the bottom of the key for tabs that will open it////next was the battery disconnected before this happened and you don't have a key fob and the alarm sounded if so you need to buy a fob and go through the programming process in the owners manual (you can download it from ford after programming the remote disconnect the battery cables and wait 3-5minutes then reconnect them when the alarm or horn starts shut it off using the key fob remote this will take you out of theft mode /// if you lost your keys a locksmith is needed do not mess with this system it will cost you a lot of $$$$ to fix it

What size belt do I need to bypass the AC Unit on a 2005 Ford Taurus

2004 And 2005 There is no bypass pulley manufactured, even though all of them come with AC. but I am learning although mechanics dont want to admit it, if you remove the ac pump a shorter belt WILL work, in fact it will work (very temperorerly because there is a slight rub) without the removeal of ac pump. but a 15 milmeter wrench will get it home to remove the AC pump about 4 hours labor. Orielly's master pro K060815, Auto Zone 822K6, or preptstone 825K6 will work.

ECU compatibility

You can try to replace with a similar unit, but typically Ford ECUs have to be "reflashed" by the dealer. Ford has numerous calibration codes and various other vehicle specific information that can only be managed with Ford certified (dealer) programing devices. I hope this helps
