Exclamation Need help with 1999 Cougar, ignition and security..

ok.. so we put the key in to start the cougar.. the key turns over but doesnt start the car like it normally would, we noticed the security light flashing like crazy so im assuming it has something to do with either the key itself or the security having an immobiliser(didnt know if we had one so we wouldnt know anything about it) and it pretty much not letting us start it asthough its thinking where trying to steal it.. all other electrics work..
Would and electric diagram help?
Had an auto electrician look at it and all they could come up with was that under the main body earth had corroded under the fuse box???
Obviously this was wrong.. as a few hours after picking ip up from them.. we couldnt start it again.

In desperate need of help, not many mechanics know what they are doing as the town we live in has only one cougar.. ours!

Re: Need help with 1999 Cougar, ignition and security..

Hey CougarChris......
I am currently fighting the same or similar problem you have. On my 1992 Cougar LS after you turn the key off and wait a set amount of time, the theft circuit activates, and you can't start the car without depressing the "open" button on the remote. This feature has stopped working. I have noticed that the "Theft" indicator light is flashing differently. It used to flash like "1 2 1 2 1 2" a nice on/off pattern. Now it is flashing " 1 2 2 1 2 2" a quick 2 flashes with a pause. I have no documentation on this thing. Has anyone gotten back to you about this?
