Asked by Jun 06, 2014 at 05:15 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Kept saying fail. My security light
flashes when I put my key in ignition
but when they try to test it the light
shuts off. I don't have a thousand
dollars to have it inspected and then
fixed. I'm trying to get ideas of what
it could be.

Does the engine crank when you turn the key? If so then the problem is not with the key. If absolutely nothing happens when the key is turned to the start position, there may be a malfunction with the security system blocking the starting procedure.
