No Start Theft Light Blinking Easy Fix

With age we are starting to see this more and more especially with ones that sit for a few days or weeks. It has to do with the poor contact of the main ground in the system and can leave you stranded with a no crank situation. Even if you aren't having this problem yet it is worth taking a look and performing my fix before it does happen on a family road trip etc.

The Ford Fiesta has almost the same problem with it when they first came out and Ford has us doing this exact procedure to take care of it once and for all.

That is one symptom and fix I haven't run into. Good tip. Been with ford 11 years now. But I am more in truck country.

Believe it or not but once I've had the fiesta ground issue. That's it. But again we don't sell many cars. Small farm town. Mostly trucks.

Re: No Start Theft Light Blinking Easy Fix

Sure wish this appeared a year ago when I had the same problem on my 2002 Mercury Cougar. Might not have been the same issue....but then again, it might have.
Now that I have a 2013 Focus, I'll be aware of the ground issue.
Thanks - very much.
