I was using the car came home turned the key and all of the dash lights and radio came on, but the car wouldnt turn over to start. We thought it was the key and that wasn't it so we replaced the transceiver and that didnt work either the battery is current and charged we have talked to people at ford and a lock smiths thinking it was a key and we cant find it

Transiever? Did you have it re programmed at dealer?

Why do you think it is the key? Is the security light on?

Did you check for power to the starter motor?

I replaced the transceiver, ck'd power and grd to it all good. Ck'd starter and battery both good, security light is now flashing fast with dtc code p1113 and p1114 and in fail-safe mode. Had licensed locksmith out as Ford doesn't make house calls and he ck'd all 3 of my keys said all good he even unprogrammed and reprogrammed all successfully. I know its not the trottle body even though in failsafe mode. Went into fail-safe 2 days after problem began. All codes were erased with no help. I have no money to afford a tow and Ford repair prices so at twits end on what to do to solve the no turn over problem.

Erasing codes does nothing. How did you test the starter if it doesnt start?

Flashing security light is a security lock out. Still think you need ford re programming as I have never heard of a locksmith programming security successfully.

Ran a power line to the starter and the engine turned over fine. My lock smith is certified by Ford Motors.
