Will the car start? If you can start the car, that may disarm the system.

Ihave a 2006 Ford Ranger,I only have a plain key, No Buttons.It has armed itself after I shut the car off.How do I disarm it?


Doesn't need button's ,has a transponder inside the head of the key . You have a anti-theft system problem , DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in theft deterrent module. Your vehicle has what ford call's P.A.T.S - passive anti-theft system . The system isn't reading the transponder in the head of the key . You need to take it to the dealer .

Car dies when I use my remote start and press the lock or unlock button


This is most likely caused by the car's anti-theft system. Most newer cards require a separate module to be installed to override the anti-theft system while the remote start is in use. Otherwise, when the anti-theft system detects an anomaly, it will immobilize the vehicle.
DEI makes a 556H module for this purpose. The link shows the instrall manual for this device.

This is the problem due to your anti theft alarm system. You have not mentioned which brand of anti-theft alarm system you have? Anyhow, most of the systems have a reset switch inside the kit, open the kit and on the main board, u will find the reset button, press that and hold for 5 sec, the system will be reset. Otherwise, there are 2 or 3 fuses with the wiring of kit, remove those fuses and ur engine will wake up but the anti-theft system wont work then, hope this will solve the problem

Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?


Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.
