My car won't start and the anti-theft light is flashing

Asked by Sep 23, 2015 at 12:53 AM about the 2007 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car won't start and the anti-theft light is flashing slowly and there is a clicking sound from somewhere under the dash.  When I turn the key, all the lights go dark, then they slowly come back up, but the car still won't start.

Make sure the battery is fully charged, then clean the cables and posts, it sounds like you have a major voltage drop, if the cleaning didn't do the trick then you need to check all the cables for bad connections and corrosion.
