Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

1 Answer

2000 Ford f-150 4.6L v8 2wd Not Starting, Theft Light Blinking

The theft light blinks rapidly and the odometer only shows dashes. The engine will crank but will not start. This happens only sometimes. Other times the truck starts normally and drives. If I leave the key in the ignition (on) over 15 mins then the truck will start. Please help me figure out what the issue is so the truck isn't so unreliable! Thanks!

Mine did this on a 2002 F150 I ended up having to replace the instrument cluster. I ordered a used one online then had the ford dealer program it.

I would also try a spare key if you have one could be the chip inside your key too.

Good luck

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

2003 ford f150 supercrew lariat. Odometer is all dashes. All lights headlight tail lights park lights are all on even with switch off and keys out. Horn won't blow. Engine will turn over but not crank.


Engine will turn over but not crank.???? Engine cranks but won't start an run .
Odometer
The instrument cluster receives odometer rolling count status from the PCM and stores the mileage in non-volatile memory (NVM). When the instrument cluster fails to receive the odometer rolling count status for more than two seconds, the odometer display will show dashes.

B2143 Odometer NVM Memory Failure Instrument Cluster INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Instrument Cluster in this section. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Taking the vehicle an having it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would be a good idea ! Not to autozone or advance etc... Need a professional or factory scanner to check for these codes .

Engine cranks, but why doesn't it start?


The immobiliser is part of the anti-theft system and that is why the vehicle won't start.

2000 mustang gt. The theft light is on and wont


When the car is off, a slowly flashing anti-theft light is normal. When the key is in one of the on positions, that light should go off. If it thinks it detects a theft condition, the light will flash quite rapidly and prevent starting. You can also check the mileage readings in the odometer display. If you see dashes instead of numbers, that is a clue that some part of the onboard computer has gone wacky.

You already tried one of the steps that I would recommend (unlocking the door, though that may not be enough by itself. Here are a couple of things to try.

First, pray that this isn't the anti-theft computer gone awry. That is uber expensive to replace. Following that prayer ...

Verify that the battery is fully charged and showing about 12.8 volts with the headlights off and about 12 volts with headlights on. If the voltages are low, try jumping the battery to see if you can get it to start. (A low battery can occasionally cause an anit-theft fault.)

If you have another key, try that one. The chip in the first key may have gone bad. If that doesn't work ...

Disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes. Reconnect, and lock and unlock the doors several times with the remote. Check to see if the anti-theft light is still flashing rapidly. If not, try starting.

Anything more than these steps will need to be handled by a qualified shop. (For example, a wire in the steering column could be damaged by the tilt mechanism, or the computer malfunctioning).

Good luck.

Engine no start


Do you have another key for the car? Try that. If not you'll have to have the keys programmed to the car at the dealer.
