SOURCE: 2001 ford focus anti theft

it would be impossible to disable the security feature without a programmer, the entire idea of the system is that no one without the proper key can start the vehicle, there is a program called "sniper" that can disable PATS (the security system in your car, Passive Anti Theft System) but it is costly, another idea to try is to call local lock smiths in your area, it is possible that one may have your key in stock even though the dealer does not,

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: how do you reset the anti theft system

Try disconnecting your battery cables then wait about 10 minutes. The computer should reset itself. Reconnect the wires to the battery. It is normal for the theft light to blink about every 5 seconds when the ignition key is out or in the off position. This means the system is armed and working properly. Hope this helps. God bless!

Disable anti theft on ford taurus


You can't , your best bet is take your vehicle to the ford dealer an have it checked out . The ford PATS - passive anti-theft system is intertwined in all the computer systems on the vehicle . I don't even think you can go into the system with the ford diagnostic tool an disable it . There is no where you could just disconnect it , it's software programmed into the modules (computers) on the vehicle .

Could anti-theft system d mustang cause car to shut off while driving?


Hi, im a retired ford tech, with alot of experience on ford anti theft . Now if you are asking about a built in oem factory anti theft, your not going to be able to bypass it. Now to answer your question, I would say your factory anti theft IS NOT causing your issue. It will make it unable to start,it doesnt kill anything else.
