How Do I Deactivate the Passive Anti-Theft System in an 04 Focus?

I'm purchasing a 2004 Focus that needs a couple of things done to it, one of which is to get it running. The radio had been stolen, activating the PATS, and I need to know how to deactivate/fix it so the car is driveable again. I think I'm going to have to get it to the Ford Dealership nearby. Also, any idea on the cost?

It won't be that expensive depending on what the did to the wires they can hook up a machine to it and disable it and fix what needs to be fixed not more that a couple hundered dollars, and have it towed to the dealer.

How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Lincoln tow car 2001 passive anti tip DTC 1260 I replaced pcm.trancevier.instrument cluster.2new ignition key but no communication this module what possible problem this?


No where in the DTC - description does it say anything about replacing any modules . An does not have anything to do with a communication problem ! You need a professional grade scan tool to communicate with the PATS system ! An if you don't know these thing's you better take it to pro !!!!!!!
P1260 - Theft Detected - Vehicle Immobilized Indicates that the passive anti-theft system (PATS) has determined a theft condition existed and the engine is disabled. This DTC is a good indicator to check the PATS for DTCs.
  • Previous theft condition
  • Anti-Theft System failure
Theft indicator flashing rapidly or on solid when ignition switch is in the ON position. Check anti-theft system for DTCs. Typical vehicle symptoms are: Start/Stall or Crank/No Start. NOTE: No crank symptom only on vehicles equipped with PATS starter disable feature

A focus was running good, but unexpectedly power cut, and i can not to starting again. where localizate a inmobilizer system in the car. Thanks in advance.


Hi ROBERTO... what year focus ? is there a little red light blinking very fast in the center of the dash pad when you try to start the car ? If so that is a problem with ( PATS ) passive anti-theft system. that is what ford calls it ,not immobilizer .If not it's not the anti-theft. Does the engine crank over ? if so there again it's not the anti-theft system . If it cranks over I'd look for a no spark or no fuel condition , and go from there. hope this helps ! let me know if you need more advice !

Reset anti theft system


it has gone into theft mode. you will need to have the system rest. it makes it so the parts are useless. when you take the battery off for any reason you need to have the key in the ignition on number 2 then off to 0. leave key in and you now have 30 seconds to take of the battery. just taking off the battery with out doing this can activate the systerm.

My anti-theft system has lock my focus engine how


if the theft light is flashing fast, the PATS(passive anti-theft system) can only be reset with a ford scanner... you can try leaving the key in the on position for a little over an hour, sometimes it works.
