Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
I had to jump my 2003 ford explorer off one morning. I turned it off and went into the store.when I returned it wouldn't start. its getting fuel and spark but wont start, but it will turn over. I was told that a bad chip in the key can cause this. how can I bypass the PATs system
Jump starting an engine will sometimes corrupt the program in the CPU . I would have the CPU reset using a code reader first so that the immobiliser was reset before I did anything else.

one problem that the 98 winstars ( 3,8L ) are prone to is the transmission range sensor. they are badly located and not well sealed. As a result corosion...
The starter solenoid wire ( red/ light blue ) runs throught the range sensor before reaching the ignition switch.
Try shifting back and forth between Park and L1 rapedly at least 5, 6 times and then try starting in Neutral.
If it starts the TRS is easy to replace and accesible.
( The TRS is also responsible for the transmission going into irradical kick down mode )
