I'm at work, on my phone (which they send people home for if caught), and unable to search. My after market alarm has a distictive beep when it goes off. I disarmed my alarm, went inside my truck, and the horn is going off, the headlights are flashing as well as parking lights, and the truck wil not start. You can hear my aftermarket alarm disarming, but the horn and light still continue.

Anybody know how to disarm the factory security? If I got to do some trick wiring to get me home I will. I've pulled the fuse to the factory anti theft but the horn continues.

Help.............I'll be checking in all day.

yo Scott;
Programming Procedure & Connector Location Diagram, Bronco, 92-96; "From the Ford service CD: Programming, Electronic Door Lock Control Processor Note: The remote entry features will not function when the key is in the RUN or ACCESSORY position. To unlock the driver's door, press the UNLOCK button on the transmitter (which is programmed into the remote entry receiver module) once. This will also disarm the anti-theft system, if equipped. To unlock all doors, press the UNLOCK button on the transmitter twice. The second depression must be within five seconds of the first UNLOCK depression. If more than five seconds have elapsed since the first depression of the UNLOCK button, pressing the UNLOCK button again will only unlock the driver's door. To turn on interior lamps (13776), press either UNLOCK or PANIC. To lock all doors, press the LOCK button on the transmitter once. To confirm that doors have locked, press LOCK button again, within five seconds of the first depression. This will beep the horn (13832), flash the parking lamps and lock all doors again. To activate the personal security alarm, press the red PANIC button. The horn will beep and parking lamps (13201) will flash for a maximum of two minutes, forty-five seconds. To deactivate the personal security alarm, press the red PANIC button again or turn the ignition switch (11572) ON. Note: The remote entry receiver module erases all previous transmitters from memory when the transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The remote entry receiver module can store up to four transmitters in memory. To program (or reprogram) transmitter(s) into the remote entry receiver module, perform the following steps: 1. Turn key to the ON or ON/ACCESSORY position and momentarily short the two terminals of the program connector (C4) (a two-pin connector taped to the wire assembly connected to the remote entry receiver module, approximately 6 inches from the remote entry receiver module). All doors should lock then unlock. Remove shorting pin. 2. Press any button on transmitter. All doors should lock then unlock to verify that the transmitter has been programmed. If door locks do not respond, press button again (up to three times maximum with the same transmitter). 3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional transmitters into the remote entry receiver module (up to four transmitters maximum). 4. Key off. All doors should lock then unlock. 5. Check operation..."

Anti-Theft System Service Tips TSB 94-25-05 for 93-94 Bronco, F Series, Explorer, Ranger, Econoline & many others
Source: by Ford via performanceprobe.com http://www.performanceprobe.com/ind...rmanceprobe.com/misc/tsb.php?article=94-25-05
some excerpts for you;
B-7) - 1994 F-SERIES/BRONCO - INADVERTENT ACTIVATION OF THE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM

ISSUE Water intrusion into the Right or Left Front Courtesy Lamp Switch (refer to EVTM) of the Anti-Theft System may cause inadvertent activation of the system.
ACTION To correct this condition you should:

Remove the switch from the door.
Place a small amount of silicone sealant on the back of the connector where the wires exit the connector (enough sealant should be used to seal the connector and prevent further water intrusion).
Tape wrap the connector and about 1.5" (38mm) of the wires beyond the switch connector.
Reinstall the switch.
Verify the repair.

--------
this ia da Ford Remote Keyless Entry TSB 97-24-13 for 1994-96 BRONCO & all other Ford cars & trucks...says it's @ base of steering column; and the prog conn is in 1/4 panel which is prob for an escort, etc. They omitted our Broncos & E/F series in location description inadvertently.
http://www.v8sho.com/SHO/Remote Keyless Entry TSB 97-24-13.htm
==================

ISSUE Vehicles may experience false activation of the anti-theft alarm, inadvertent activation with alarm system deactivated, or activation of the alarm system with the key in the ignition. If the condition occurs when the system is not activated, the cause is most likely in the ignition sensor to cylinder/housing contact area. Some vehicles may develop corrosion between the sensor and the cylinder housing which increases the resistance value of the sensor and activates the alarm.

ACTION We recommend, that in addition to correcting any problems found under normal diagnostics, you replace the Ignition Keylock Cylinder Sensor with the new "one-piece" design sensor, and clean the ignition keylock cylinder and Steering Column Housing surfaces (refer to Figures 1 and 2).

in case figure doesn't appear here; http://www.performanceprobe.com/images/page/tsb/articles/942505_1.jpg

http://www.performanceprobe.com/images/page/tsb/articles/942505_2.jpg
To begin the repair:

NOTE:
REFER TO THE SERVICE MANUAL FOR SERVICE PROCEDURES THAT APPLY TO YOUR SPECIFIC VEHICLE.

Disconnect the battery.
Follow the procedures in the appropriate Service Manual to remove the ignition key lock cylinder sensor.
Remove the sensor from the housing.
Cut the black ground wire (attached to the "OLD" sensor) that is fastened to the steering column housing underneath the clockspring assembly.
Clean the surface of the key lock cylinder groove where the sensor contacted the cylinder and clean the contact area of the steering column housing with a steel wool pad to provide clean surfaces for the new sensor.
Install a "NEW" ignition keylock cylinder sensor (see chart).
Reinstall the assemblies as outlined in the Service Manual.
Verify proper system operation.
NOTE:

Well, I read in my owners manual, if you use the key to open the door, it would disarm it. Wouldn't disarm from drivers door, but would disarm using the key in passenger door. But that's the door that triggered the weirdness anyways.

Thanks Al for all that input. I'm sure this isn't the end of this yet. That info will come in handy for sure.

This is what my truck is doing right now. Headlights start flashing, and it won't disarm and allow me to start the truck until I put the key in the passenger door and turn the key. Then I can go and start my truck. Starting to get real annoying..........

How would i remove the anti theft all together is there special steps to doing it?
There is a factory anti theft module under the dash just to the left of the radio. It is white in color. It is connected the the vehicles wiring harness. Removing the connections to the module may help with your problem.

You shouldn't have to disable your factory alarm at all!

Your aftermarket alarm most likely has a wire that is meant for "factory alarm disarm". Most of the aftermarket alarm's put out a negative pulse on this wire when you hit "disarm" on your aftermarket keyfob. What you need to do is take off the door panel on your passenger side and find the wires that are either on the door lock cylender, or in some way connected to the door locking mechanisem.

Take your multi-meter and test the wires one by one, looking for the one that shows 0 ohm's resistance when you unlock your door with the key. If you don't find one, repeat the same thing with your multimeter looking for voltage. If you find one that shows 12v when you unlock it, you will need to use that wire.

If you find a wire that shows 12V when you unlock, you will have to use a relay so the aftermarket system can switch 12V to that wire.

If you find a wire that shows ground, figure out the colors on it, trace it back to the wiring harness right where it comes into the truck (from the door) and have the aftermarket alarm's "factory alarm disarm" wire connect to it.

If you got your alarm installed by someone, take it back and make them fix it.

There is no reason to disable your factory alarm if your aftermarket alarm has the "factory alarm disarm" wire.

Unless there is an issue internally with the T-case it wont need to be changed. There "should" be a tag on the front and rear differentials; that will tell you what gears are in them. The bottom line on the tag closest to the bolt should have some numbers such as 3 55 or 3L55. If there is an L between the first and second number you have a trac-loc differential.

yeah i think something may be up with t case but not sure i have to pull the fuse for it to go into 2h and it flat out wont go into 4l also would like to know what would cause the idle to jump around and how i could narrow it down if it is multi reasons

Mine did that to me several weeks back. I was in the parking lot and received a lot of attention from all the noise.

I don't have a FOB so I didn't really know it could do that. I'm also not sure what triggered it either but I shut the driver side door and it turned off. :shrug:

Does anyone know if the RKE module and the anti-theft module the same? I don't believe they are, as I know exactly where the RKE module is. I'm chasing a gremlin myself and my truck will not start.......now. I've unpluged all the connectors to the RKE module, the factory alarm to try to find my source of draw that I've had and to try to fix my anti-theft light flashing problem, and then the truck will not start. So I plugged all the connections back and now it sounds like it's out of time. The motor will turn over then stop, turn over then stop......It ran just fine going into the garage. :banghead

Mikey! Your just down the street from me. :thumbup

Where the fawk is that located? I have no idea why this thing will not start. I didn't do anything but unplug a few connections then plug them back in. But I would like to disconnect the factory anti theft if I will solve my flashing light problem. I believe it's the reason my battery keeps going dead.

This is the module I unplugged
