Asked by Jan 04, 2015 at 05:36 PM about the 2000 Ford Expedition XLT

Question type: General

I disconnected the red cable from the battery over night, when reconnecting the cable the
horn started honking like crazy, disconnected again, reconnected and did not try to start it
is fine. Now after hours of just sitting there I try to start the engine, nothing, try to put the
lever in N and try to start again, nothing

Anti theft system had been activated, you need to push the 7/8 9/0 keypad buttons at the same time then enter the unlock code to disable the system. Sometimes this can also work by using the door key to first lock the drivers door then unlock it.

since this one does not have a keypad, I waited 30 minutes after reconnecting and did the 'key thing' but nothing

the theft light at the steering column is blinking so I think it does work but just don't turn

Ok then try doing the same thing with the passenger door. Does it look factory or something added on?

the passenger door has no lock

tried again the driver side, does not turn and theft sign in dashboard is on

If you can't get the lock to turn then you can't deactivate the system, A trip to the dealer is about your only choice unless you know someone with a system reprogrammer that can override it for you.
