I'm almost complete and trying to get to jetfest! Do i need a matching key to an ecu to start it? i get power everywhere and when i turn my key to start the odometer flashes 0000 then goes to ---- top and bottom. I can't imagine it is anything else or the ecu is bad. I've swapped out the entire svt wire harness every part etc. please help!!!

uhhh...good question. havnt gotten to hook that light up because the clip it's on is different than my hazard switch. ford changed sooo much in 2002 it's not even funny.
what will it do if it is interupting start?
and no i'm not sure the ecu is good/on?!
thanks for the help too! i think that i could bring it to ford and have them test it. sounds expensive though.

might be a good idea to get that light hooked up. it can tell a lot.

if it's fine and just flashing like normal and the odo reads "- - - - -" the ECU might not be working right.
if the light is off or solid (i dont remember) the PATS system is keeping the car from starting b/c of the key.
