My 2003 ford escape all the sudden wont
start, everything comes on when I turn the key in the ignition but the car wont start. It sometimes starts with the remote start, but not always. My mechanic thinks its a problem with the anti-theft and the key programing?

Mine all of sudden could not start, but no lights, no nothing even when we tried starting, could not crank..., but have not tried unlocking and locking with the remote yet (did not have the remote at the time, because I had removed it), had to manually lock all doors..

I was driving and my truck shut down completely. When I tried to start the truck back up I have not been able to do so. I turn the key and I have light and everything but truck will not turn over.

I have the exact same problem now . Driving along with the grand babies and truck just shut down. Everything works , but turn the key and it's just blank, no click,no nothing . Did you find out what was wrong with yours?
