Some 2006-2007 Fusion and Milan vehicles built with a 2.3L engine may exhibit an intermittent crank no start along with a Passive Anti Theft System (PATS) light flashing during cranking and various codes stored in memory. The root cause has been found to be related to radio interference related to a shopping cart anti theft device installed at some 99 Cent or Dollar store parking lots.
To resolve the customer concern reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 45.5 and higher.
