Default Valet/Overide Button on 2001 ford taurus

Could someone please tell me where I should be looking? I need to override my system so the car will start. A picture would be awesome, I have tried looking for one but no such luck.

There is no such button or feature.

Yeah, never heard of that one on a Taurus. Some luxury cars like Caddys have them in the glove compartment.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm?

Yea I have an aftermarket alarm. (Lights flash, and horn honks at the same time). I am stuck! Also, I realized that my driver side door lock seems to be jammed and pushed in. Could this be affecting my car starting?

To be honest with you sir, I have no earthly idea. So I went and bought WD-40 to try and unjam my drivers side door lock and no such luck it is still jammed.

Well that's probably going to be important to find out so you can obtain a manual.

I answered my own question. I do not have an aftermarket alarm therefore there is going to be no theft/override button present. However, I have found out how to disable my alarm system so I am thinking that if I do that then the no-start issue may be fixed. Am I correct?

No, the factory perimeter alarm is different from the passive anti-theft system. The perimeter alarm just sounds the alarm, but doesn't disable the vehicle. PATS is what disables the starter if the chipped key isn't present, but doesn't sound an alarm.

Is the Theft light flashing any differently at any time other than its normal slow blinking?

The theft light is not blinking at odd patterns. I have been trying to come up with a solution and the only thing I can think of would be to disable PATS to make it start. The only thing I can think of would be to disable PATS all together, but I have no clue how to do that. If anyone does, feel free to PM me.

Any other suggestions? Thanks.

EDIT: I just put the keys into my ignition and I plan on leaving them there for a while. I noticed the Theft light flashing very fast and continuously.
