SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to start up my car today and no go! :( (EF Falcon 4ltr)

When you turn the key to the "on" position, the "Smart Lock" light flashes 5 times in a row, then stops, and repeats for few times, after which it just goes balistic. The starter motor works, but the smart lock doesn't allow for fuel or spark or something.

What do i do?

I rung up Fraud....err Ford and great help they were by saying "well it's a smart lock problem, you'll have to bring it in" funny that, considering I can't even start it!! and the bloke could not tell me what the 5 flashes indicate.



I've had the problem once before, but just checked all the wires leading to the smart lock unit, and it started after that, but it doesn't seem to be doing that today.

Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disconnect the car battery to reset the ecu and see if that spikes the power enough to let it start..

Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tried bashing it, all it did is relief some stress... but it still does it

tried the battery disconnecting crap, no help :(

had a glance at the fuses, look fine... but will try to replace some with new one
Which ones would be the likely culperate?

Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

turn the car on, leave it to flash, DON'T TRY and START IT, just leave it powered up for around 1/2- 1 hour... When it stops flashing fast try and start it
