SOURCE: What is definition of PATS, HEC and RFID. These

PATS - Passive AntiTheft System.
- This is the large head on the key to the truck programmed.

HEC - Hybird Electronic Cluster ( I think that is the correct words ).
This is where the RFIDs ( see below ) for the keys programmed to the truck are stored in the cluster.

RFID - Radio Frequency IDentification
The key head has a serial number that is stored in it. and similar to the white tags on CDs and expensive items in stores, an antenna "paints" ( produces a signal field ) the RFID tag in the key to enable it to be read. This is how the key ( or those white tags in the store ) do not need a battery in them to transmit the information.

Sorry I screwed you up in the other problem by getting acronym happy without defining them.

The PATS antenna is around the ign key cylinder. To remove the cover 3 of the holes have phillips head screws in them. The 4th hole, use a punch or drift to press the button AFTER turning the key to the run position.

The PATS antenna is around the ignition key cylinder

This is all I could come to with the issue of the RMST work start the truck, but if you used the 2 keys for the truck, the theft light would not go out.
Once you get to this point, you might not notice anything obviously wrong, which I can only suggest repalcing the PATS transponder loop antenna. I know Remove & Replace is a bad diagnoses step, the only other route is having a dealer, high end mechanic or locksmith try to reprogram the keys again. The dealer / mechanic might have luck with getting the reprogrammed, else they are going to go the same route.
I do not see where this can be, there can be 8 PAS keys programmed ( unless it is a fleet vehicle, which a setting can be set to 2 keys only, but the PATS bypass for the RMST would not have been added if this was the case ).

How do I reset anti theft on 2000 lincoln Continental


You take it to the dealer , you have no idea how it works ! Takes factory diagnostic tool to get into the system . No magical fix like disconnecting the battery . Need to find what codes are stored in the PATS control module .
The passive anti-theft system (PATS) uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user. This system is known as SecuriLockĀ® in North America, SafeguardĀ® in the U.K., and PATS in Continental Europe. This information can be found in customer literature such as the Owner's Manual.
PATS uses a specially encoded ignition key. Each encoded ignition key contains a permanently installed electronic device called a transponder. Each transponder contains a unique electronic identification code out of over 72 million billion combinations.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into a vehicle's hybrid electronic cluster (HEC) before it can be used to start the engine. There are special diagnostic service procedures outlined in the workshop manual that must be performed if the encoded ignition keys need to be replaced.
The encoded key is larger than a traditional ignition key. The key does not require batteries and should last the life of the vehicle.
The transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. This module is located behind the steering column shroud, and contains an antenna connected to a small electronic module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends the data to the HEC.
The control functions are contained in the HEC. This module performs all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling engine enable. The HEC initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
PATS uses the powertrain control module (PCM) to enable or disable the engine. The HEC communicates with PCM over the J1850 network in order to enable engine operation. The HEC and the PCM use sophisticated messages in order to prevent a theft. The HEC communicates with the lighting control module (LCM), which controls the theft indicator.The HEC and the PCM share security data when first installed together that makes them a matched pair. After this security data sharing, these modules will not function in other vehicles. The shared PCM ID is remembered even if the battery is disconnected. The HEC also stores the vehicle's key identification code even if the battery is disconnected. There are special diagnostic workshop procedures outlined in this service manual that may be performed if either the HEC or the PCM needs replacement.
All elements of PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working properly, the vehicle will not start.
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. This indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS problem, this indictor will either flash rapidly or glow steadily (more than three seconds) when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. PATS also "blips" the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual theft deterrent.
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood, and trunk) and sounds an alarm.
The PATS is not compatible with aftermarket remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. Remote Start systems must be removed before investigation of PATS-related No Start issues.

2000 ford f150 change computer from junk yard , well not start now ,but showing theft light ,do I have to get this thing flashed


The HEC ( hybird Electronic Cluster ) has a PCM ID stored in it, that needs to be cleared from the old one you had, so the new one can be re-learned.
The HEC sends the valid key tag with the PCM_ID configured in the HEC to the PCM for comparison to know if the start enable should be valid or invalid

This is so someone cannot take a cluster, ignition key cylinder and the PATS keys configured in the HEC, and put it into a truck, to make it start. Takes a bit of programming to get it to work.

Going to need someone to erase the PCM_ID parameter in the HEC to make the truck not think it is being stolen ( good news, it works as advertised ).

2000 f150 will not start,replaced computer ,fuel pump,try to start and theft light keeps flashing, acts like there is no spark.


If you replaced the PCM, the HEC ( instrument Cluster ) needs to have the PCM_ID cleared. The HEC and PCM are paired at the factory, if this is changed a WDS / IDS diagnostic tool needs to be used. Higher end mechanics and Dealers have the equipment to do this.

If the PCM_ID in the cluster does not match the PCM, the fuel pump is shut off, the same as if an un-programmed PATS key is used ( Crank no start with flashing theft light ).

98 lincoln town car wont start, the theft protection is activated


theft protection rsets itself. I have never seen a PCM go bad. Some just need a reflash which costs much, much less. You can get a used PCM if you really think you need one, at car-part.com. Page with asterisk is lowest price.

here's some info on antitheft. What's your red light doing on the dash when you turn on the key or try to start the car?
