Please HELP, I need to by pass the PATS system all together on a 2002 F150 supercrew, Im was installing a remote start alarm and decided to skip out on buying a PATS bypass unit and just jump the signal wires that go to the instrument cluster and now it wont even start with my keys, I tried to reprogram it by the one key in to one position then the second key in to the on position but nothing, I even left the battery disconnect all night and still nothing. I have to either learn how to program my keys back in or just forget about it and bypass the comnplete system all together as Im now at home stuck with a truck I can't even start up to drive it even if I wanted to just take it to the dealer to have them do it.......note to self "never go the cheap route again"

If you jumped the signal wires together, you probably fried something. I have no idea what made you think that would work. You didn't say if you put the wires back to the original way, but I'll assume you did. You are probably calling a tow truck on this one...and paying a good sized repair bill.

If the PATS system has been tampered with and cause a short in the system, you will need to replace the PATS computer and get new keys made. This is a VERY expensive process that Ford will kindly charge it's cusotmer's for. Definitely a learning experience for you and other member's........ don't cheap out on a $ 20 part when it comes to $ 1000 + repair bill

Thanks for the replies,I need to get this thing started as I can't beleive there is no way around this system, if that was true and there wasn't then there would be no ford stolen vehicles except for the ones that get towed away.

Not true, the guys stealing these vehicles with PATS, can bypass an ACTIVE working PATS system, but if you short out the PATS, then your done.

I shorted out the RX and TX wires going to the instrument cluster. It seems it kills the fuel supply. I can cycle the key several times and it it to fire for a second or two. How can I test out the PATS to see what I need to replace. I will continue to try to decode this anti-thief system tring to elimate it all together please keep the replies coming in.

Time to call a tow truck. Why the hell did you short wires going to the instrument cluster? Did you mean the key cylinder, the only thing in the cluster is the light? If you fried the computer then you will never get the truck to start, what part of this is so hard to understand.
