car will crank, start, and shut off`

Asked by Dec 19, 2015 at 03:16 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

both battery cables were removed. upon starting the car, it ran with a rough
idle. then, shut off. started back, would run and then shut off. can the anti
theft system cause my fuel pump to shut down? how do i reset the PATS?
also, can using 2 different keys cause a problem? had lost one and the
other worked. then found the original ford key. used it and then it started
and shut off. what do i need to do about this?  thanks for the help

If you have had any keys programmed after the original one was lost then the original one is now not programmed. Use the key that you know works. If you have yo have 2 good keys that start and run the truck you can use them to program additional keys. cycle the 2 known good keys off then on and then you cycle the 3rd key to program it. otherwise it requires a computer that is dealer or a good locksmith.
