2000 Gt theft light flashing

I just purchased a 2000 mustang gt last week from a private owner. It did not have a key fab with it. Yesterday it ran hot I had the fan relay changed and added coolant. Drove home and went to start the car 10 minutes later and it wouldn't start it was trying to start but clicking and the theft light was flashing. Can anyone help me?

Might need to get a remote programmed to it somehow. Is it a viper system by chance? Well id try disconnecting the battery for a few mins and trying again, if its clicking that may not even be related though cause when mine does that it sets off the alarm but wont even try to turn over

The security system is on lock down....this would be the OEM system. If I recall it'll need to be unlocked by the dealer but don't quote me on it.

If that clicking is the starter then it may be a dead battery, which would also cause your security system to do crazy stuff too

Check your battery cables and try jump starting it.

Is the starter clicking, or trying to crank over?? If the engine sounds like it is trying to turn, it'll be the security system. If it is making clicking noises, it is a battery problem/connection issue.

Also, if the OEM system went on and you don't have the "Properly Encoded Key", then you'll need to actually tow it to the dealership. These keys run about $60 + $$ the cost of the service department encoding it to your actual vehicle.

Yes, if the OEM goes into lock down and you don't have the encoded key, only the dealership can unlock it. Not even the automotive locksmiths can unlock it. FYI...
