2005 Focus wont start. There is a flashing red symbol on the dash of a key next to a lock. There's power, but turning the key does not turn the starter.

Car beeps when you open the door with key removed. Ignition has refused to release the key before, but released when battery was disconnected. The last time this happened tow truck driver removed battery and reconnected 15 minutes later which fixed the problems. This time left the battery disconnected all night but no change.

Any ideas?

Search on here for issues with the PATS System. There are many others who have been in your situation and I believe the consensus is that a new ignition and reprogrammed PATS from Ford is the solution.
I have no clue what the root cause is. It seems like it just happens for no reason.
