WILL NOT START

1998 Ford Explorer • 160,000 miles

I taken my ford explorer 1998 to a mechanic he said he hooked up to the machine and it came up anti theft causing my explorer not to start. Can I disarm this device. Where do I find this to do so. Thank you

We can't and won't give out info any info to disable anti theft devices. The info could fall into the wrong hands. What were the exact code numbers you had not code descriptions?

Knowing the code numbers is are starting point sometimes we find out certain code numbers are common failures with common fixes. Some issues we can just read codes do a few tests and make repairs. Others we need scan tools that can read live data and sometimes that are able to command certain parts like the computer does for diagnosis. I wish it weren't the world we live in. It would have saved me a lot of money from have to by a professional scan tool that can read all the computers in the vechiles and command certain solenoids and do tests etc.I bought a used one because there just to expensive for me to afford new. On that vechile there is your key a reciever, transmitter, wires, computers etc as possible causes for causing the problem. The codes would help point us in the direction of where the problem could be. Do you have any paper work that has notes on it codes etc from where you took it to have it looked at?Or did he mention what may be the problem?

I read the trouble tree for code B1681 and it lists only the pats module or the transceiver module for possible bad parts for that code. Can you ask which part they mean so I can help you further?

That last one is for code U1147/U1262 still doesn't help me figure out what needs to be replaced. You paid the guy for a diagnosis you can't just ask him what he is talking about?I'm really trying to help you here but you have to help me too. If you get me the part you need to replace I can get you the info for replacing it.
