2004 Ford Taurus Factory anti Theft System

Asked by Jun 26, 2016 at 08:52 AM about the 2004 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: General

Wondering if there's a way to reset anti theft
system. I just had the brake light switch replaced
and now the car won't crank. It will turn on but
won't crank. Wondering what could have activated
alarm. I have tested both keys with chip and one is
a match for system. Don't know what to do

From the world wide web..... Is your 'THEFT' light blinking rapidly when you put the ignition in 'RUN'? You can try the following steps and see if the car will start. 1. Turn the key to 'RUN' (do not try to start). 2. The 'THEFT' light should blink rapidly. After a minute the blinks should slow down. 3. Turn the ignition 'OFF' and remove the key and keep it at least 2 feet from the steering column for 30 seconds. 4. Put the key back in and turn to the 'RUN' position. Wait for the normal engine self-test procedure to take place. The 'THEFT' light should not be blinking. If it isn't you should be able to start the vehicle normally. If this doesn't work and the 'THEFT' light is still flashing you can disconnect the + Positive battery cable for a short while and reset the computer. If that doesn't work the PCM will most likely need a flash.
