Hi all, I have an ED falcon that has been cutting out on me while driving, it would restart almost immeadiatley. It slowly took longer, over time, before i could restart it until now, it wont start. There are no ignition lights, but the smartlock light is flashing. I have replaced the ignition switch assembly (on Fords advice) but it has made no differance, i have got hold of a second hand smartlock module, fitted it and done the 30 min recalibration thing and had a minor success. I got the ignition lights back on but it didn't engage the starter (like it was not in park) When i moved the gear selector lever to verify it was in park, all lights went out again.What is my next step that does not involve petrol and matches? Thanks

i have not had that type of experience but i would check the fuses and relays around where the battery is. and check the battery terminals are not corroded and are clean.

Well i've solved the problem myself. seems i have a dodgy electrical connector coming from the steering colum. After fiddling around, lights and relays clicked on and i was able to reset the smartlock correctly (30 min wait) all systems go! by the way, how can you start the car without smartlock?
