2004 Crown Victoria

Hello evryone.
My previous post Crown Vic no start.
I have done all my research ,testing,communicating with mechanics.
No keys worked.
So I replaced the anti theft transceiver. Simple task.
But the car is still in the theft mode and won't start.
I can't give up. Any suggestions.

Thanks

Re: 2004 Crown Victoria

When the modules are replaced, the programming has to be downloaded and reloaded to the new module. A dealer or shop that has the right equipment will have to deal with it.

Disconnect the battery and leave it for 30 mins too remove SAVED Memory. Reconnect battery and the new (PATS) Transceiver modul should work.

Re: 2004 Crown Victoria

ok redwil i have seen a broken wire at connector 2007 this connector is located behind the knee bolster follow the wires from the transciever to the next connector its a four pin connector and i've seen broken wires there on the female side of the connector if theres no problem there check fuse 2.8 in the fuse box in the vehicle fuse number 8 25amp if you still have found no problems you'll have to bring it in and have them try to reprogram your keys

Re: 2004 Crown Victoria

after you put that transciever in did you cycle you key for example key one you put in the ignition and turned key to on position and left it there for at least 5 second(what is you theft light doing durring this?) then remove key one and insert key 2 and turn to on position and leave on for 5 seconds(what is theft light doing durring this?)

key off theft light flashes once every second (proper operation)
key on theft light comes on solid and turns off(proper operation)
key on theft light flashes quickly no start (theft detected)

Re: 2004 Crown Victoria

Thers is no broken wires. I also checked all my voltage and ohms on the data link.
I think the grounding is bad inside the pcm..
Any suggestions?
