need help with 7.3

Iam Having A Problem With Our Excursion. Its A 2000 7.3 With Only
59k Miles. This Is What Happened. My Wife Went Out To Go To Work
And It Wouldnt Start. I Went Out And The Wait To Start Light Wouldnt Come On. It Turns Over Strong But Will Not Start. It Has Brand New Batteries. This Is The Funny Part I Had A New Key Programmed The Other Day And Today The Security Light Stays On And All The Gauges On The Dash Dont Work? Any Ideas? Please Help!!
Thanks Matt

Did you try your old key. Check your fuses, oil, all the usuall stuff. My 2000 does not have a chip in the keys I dont think, so it should not be the key. Is it doing anything else?

Did not know that, if he got a key made and it does not have the chip, it may do something funky.

It wouldnt do a thing.

It would just sit there. Kind of like my mom putting vegitables infront of me. I would just sit there.

Not to argue, but thats not true Jon.....Most vehicles will turn over.....newer explorers will even sound like they are trying to start.....

First things first. Do you have the old key? More improtantly do you have two good keys???

Yes, i have seen a few very rare instances of a key....actually it is the computers recognition of the key......losing its "memory".

Next question i have for you is look at a few other things. See if the courtasy entry (interior lights when you open the door) work....if the door ajar light is on all the time.....and if the tach moves....
