Freestyle 2005: Wrench Light and fast ticking noise when starting

Post by depster » Thu Sep 13, 2018 1:25 am

I own a 2005 Ford Freestyle Limited

I have a Wrench Light (Throttle Control/Transmission) and fast ticking noise (almost like a helicopter sound) when starting. The Anti-theft system also flashing. Car internal lights do several things. They show up severely dim or not at all. Another try they come on.

Car wont start. Just makes the fast ticking noice when I turn the key...

What am I looking at?

Well the tow company came and was able to jump start the car. NO warning lights came on! No helicopter sound. NO anti theft light, and the inside lights are back to full power.

I'm hoping that that's the end of it but of course I'm nervous that it isn't. What do you guys think?

And now it all works fine? Sounds like at least your battery is dead. The electronics go all freaky sometimes when the battery craps out.
