The key your using is not programmed or the anti theft system has failed. Take to your local dealership to program or fix the cause of the concern.

I just replaced the ECM in my 2005 Escape & I did have to have a Locksmith come out & REPROGRAM the Key Codes into the computer. When You turn on your ignition, the red THEFT light will probably start flashing fast & the engine will not turn over. This means it doesnt like your key. Time to call the Locksmith or drag it to the dealership to get it reprogrammed.

You may have activated security system if theft light flashing when key is turned, needs reset.
try timing belt
It's the brake light, either your emergency brake is on or you need to have your brakes serviced....check out the recall on the ABS in your Escape.
If you mean theft system activated, it can only be reset through computer by an auto locksmith or dealer. If light flashes when key is on, theft was detected. If light is not on and you have no fuel at schrader valve on rail- you can try inertia switch for fuel.
Actually, the ford escape has a factory recall on the ABS. (anti lock brake system). Take it to your ford dealer and they will fix it for free. Low brake fluid
no it has to be reprogramed by dealer
Have vehicle scanned

my daughter has a 1994 ford explorer and every so often it will not start we were told it's because the radio was hooked up to the anti theft devise which causes it not to start sometimes. How do we bypass this to get her truck to start?
Hi, Depending of the year of your vehicule, the anti-theft light is located in the instrument cluster ( "theft" word flashing) or on the top of the dash, close to the defrost grill (a red light). When you turn the key to the ON position (when all the accessories are powered and the dash comes ON), when does the anti-theft light does? Does it shu down or blinks really fast? It stop blinking and go… Read More
This is just to deter theft. Whether or not your car came with an optional anti-theft system, the light will still be there, simulating a anti-theft system. It's just a light-emitting diode, so it doesn't have enough draw to drain the battery.
no, it is not one of advanced cars of tomorrow =P
check out issues that might have to do with the catayltic converters...that was a major issue for my light going on and also my friend who has an escape too. Supposedly many ford escapes and their mazda counterparts have issues in that area
I have a 2006 Escape and had the same problem. Turned out to be a cracked ABS Tone Ring.
Both headlights might be out on your 2001 Ford Escape because you have blown a fuse or several fuses. You also might have light bulbs that have burned out.

Correct the tire pressure.

it will randomly stall at the stop light
That would be the idea. The light reminds you are in 4x4
Check you antifreeze level there is a float that makes the light go on when coolant is low
1999 FORD RANGER XL THEFT LIGHT IN DASH BLINKS WHEN I SHUT OFF ENGINE AND STAYS ON AFTER I START IT. THERE IS NO HORN OR OTHER SOUND. WHAT DOES MEAN AND IS THERE A WAY TO SHUT IT OFF?
You have a problem with passive anti theft system. If it's activated light will flash when key is powered on but will not start. It should never flash and start and engine stay on. You need an auto locksmith to check the system, key halo, module and ecu.
Must be a stolen motor...
The PATS system is integrated into the PCM and cannot be bypassed.
The ford escape is a very temperamental car to say the least. The light could be coming on for several reasons. The escape has many sensors that can short circuit and cause the light to go on. I recommend taking your car to autozone. They will test your car out for free and narrow the problem down. Then you can go from there. Fix it yourself or take it to a mechanic.
its always in theft mode. There should be a little light that will flash on the dash or around the speedometer when the ignition is off and the key is out.
on most cars when the anti theft light is flashing on the dash it had shut down and locked your fuel system to prevent the car from being stolen. consult your manual or contact a ford dealer to find out how to dissarm the devise
Check your brake fluid level.

When first start the engine on your ford escape in park, it sputtered and then when warm up it runs ok and then when you driving on the road it jerks going up the hill and lose power. And on flat road it smooth out.
I believe this a mood light feature, on when headlight or marker lights are in use.
Have it checked for codes with a scan tool. There are pages and pages of causes for a check engine light.
Ford Escape was created in 2000.
