My 2001 Ford explorer won't start
I locked my keys in my car and had to get a
locksmith to unlock it now I'm down $200 and my
car won't start because the "THEFT" light came on
thinking that someone tried to steal my car. This is
a 2001 Ford explorer wtf happened? I can't not
have a car and I don't wanna spend hundreds of
dollars to fix this shit. Can anyone help me at all?
Try using the key fob to arm and then disarm the alarm and see if that resets things. Disconnecting the battery for a few minutes might do the trick.
I'll try the battery, because I just have a regular key.
Unlocking the Door with Key or Remote "DisArms" the Factoryb Alarm If the "THEFT" Light is flashing, & you have "ONE" Key, then the PATS Unit & Key will need to be Programmed via Dealer Scan Tool as "Master Key" If you have "2" Keys, try the other key If "both" Keys do not start & the "THEFT" Light continues to flash, then the PATS Unit needs to be tested apprx 1 hour labor If the "THEFT" Light is NOT Flashing & just the Horn & Lights are triggered, Be sure Battery is fully charged Close Hood Lock & close all doors Leave Undisturbed for apprx 15 minutes Unlock with Key or Remote Start vehicle
