My 2001 expedition 5.4 blew up a coil & spark plug #8. I replace spark & coil but it doesn't want to start. Anti theft light is blinking rapidly & is killing battery. I think the coil made a short when hitting firewall. What should I do? Think u, please help.

Did you remove a battery cable for this operation?

It sounds like a security failure and ford is the only one who can re program it.

I did not say that and no, you did not.

It sounds like a security issue triggered by you removing the cable

I call a lock Smith and told him what happened. He said that it was a electrical problem. I told him when I turn key to on, all gauges go up and down & my odometer is just shows little dots.

Thats new information you did not state.

There is a gem module or bcm that may have bearing on this.

Either way, you will need a shop to confirm this as it would an expensive guess either way. Lets be sure.

Not the dealer but a good shop as the dealer will be the most expensive here.

Go back to your original post and there is a link for donations
