I have an 2001 Deisel Ford Excursion. For a time now it refuses to try and crank, you just hear a click, and then nothing. I think it has somthing do do with the alarm system and i wan't to deactivate it. Supposidly there is this vallet/override button or switch somewhere but i can't find it to save my life. Anyone here know where it is, or if it is the same button as the fuel pump reset button under the glovebox?
Factory "alarms" do not have a Valet feature. In fact, they aren't really alarms at all. They are passive. Lock the doors with the windows down and you can reach in an unlock the doors and nothing will happen. It is the key that is the "key" to the system. You need the PATS key to turn the starter over.
Sounds as if you've got a bad battery cable, connection or ground.
