What does the theft light do if you just turn the key to ON without trying to start? Just trying to determine this is a PATS issue and not a bad starter solenoid.
You can read PATS status (see how many keys are programmed) with ForScan without needing the 2nd key yet.
In the on position, before the start position, all of the cluster lights will come on as normal. The theft light will also come on and remain on for a few seconds but will then turn off.
At no point does it do a fast blink.
The key in every other position or with the key removed, the theft light will simply steady blink.
