Blinking theft light... 98 explorer will not start!!! please help!!
I need help guys!
My 98 explorer will not start!!! The "Theft" light on the dash blinks constantly. I was able to start it once, after continuously turning the switch on/off; the theft light remained constant and I was able to start it. It has just been sitting in the driveway since then! Is there anything I can do to disable the anti theft system? Any wiresI could cut? Fuses? (securilock).
I called my local ford dealership he told all they had to do was "pull a wire loose"
Check the EEC power relay under the hood in the power distribution box. Its pretty common for that relay to go bad or for a bad connection to occur at the relay. If procesor gets no powerup then the theft light will flash and a no start condition will occur.
Ask her if she hears a buzzing noise from the right front fender area when this happens. That is where the CCRM is located. Also on the mustang there is a ground connector near the battery, a black 2 pin connector that often will over heat and the pins inside the connector can cause a power failure to the CCRM. Ive found a few like that in recent past.
