Where is the anti theft box located on 2003 ford Taurus?


The PATS - passive anti-theft system is a program (software ) programmed into the instrument cluster , PCM - engine computer , GEM module etc... Plus behind the plastic shroud on steering column where the lock cylinder is located the passive anti-theft transceiver module ! You better know what your getting into when you start to mess with anti-theft systems , you can render your vehicle useless if your not careful ! Need factory scanner to program keys , to read trouble codes , check data etc... If you change transceiver module it will need to be programmed ! FORD DEALER ONLY ! You can program more keys but need to have original two keys that came with the vehicle or you can't do it >
Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) -Principles of Operation 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 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a drive-away theft. This system is known as SecuriLock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in Continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (PATS) is not compatible with non-Ford 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. If equipped, the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle powertrain control module (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
The correct ignition key is a different design than prior model years. Please consult the Rotunda Key Ordering Guide for the correct part number.
So , before messing with something you know nothing about , do yourself a favor , take it to the nearest FORD dealer !

Anyone have a wiring diagram or know how to hook this up ?


Black and red are pretty standard for negative & positive battery terminals.
There is likely a model number (pic isn't good enough to see the finer print) on the label but the larger numerals are probably serial numbers and without the model number, you may have a problem finding the exact installation info you want.

The link below has illustrations for a different model but manufacturers will generally stick with a wiring code to make installation and even production simpler:

That company does not have the web 'presence' they should have by now.

Where is the wire located to stop automatic timing adjustment on a 1994 GMC 1500 5.7L


Hi:) There is a brown wire with a singal black connector in the wiring harness under the brake booster that goes up behind the engine on the drivers side to the distributor area.You disconnect this wire to disengage the computer timing auto adjustment. Set the timing to 0.deg and turn off engine before reconnecting brown wire. Computer will automaticly set the timing.

Need electronic ignition wiring diagram for a 1966 thunderbird


The only place that I know that has a wiring diagram is the factory shop manual which is available thru any thunderbird restoration parts suppliers or ebay. If the electronic ignition, they called it transistorized ignition in 66, is original, you might consider changing to a point type ignition or a later electronic ignition or aftermarket like Petronics. The parts for the original transistorized ignition are very hard to find and even more pricier.

Ing timming for a 1969 chev 427 390 hp


It's trial and error. If it's a stock points style ignition start with factory settings. If it's an aftermarket electronic ignition, you'll need to know how much vacuum, mechanical or electronic advance there is. Most street engines work best with around 32 to 36 degrees total advance. So you use a timing light to set basic timing at 10 to 14 degrees BTDC, and find out how much vaccum, mechanical or electronic advance there is by 4500 RPM ( it's usually best to have all the advance in by 3600 RPM for a street or strip car). Then reset idle speed and use a stopwatch to test 0 - 60 MPH times and go with what setting gives you the fastest time without pinging. Maybe even a couple more degrees retarded for street use on pump gas ( you can always bump it up a few degrees at the track or when using octane boosters).

2001 Ford Windstar, won't start, theft light on, van has a new battery


theft light should be flashing when system is armed. It should reset itself. If on steady, you have a probelem. Try your other key first. This inof should help you. Report back if you still need help.

Anti-Theft —Passive The passive anti-theft system (PATS) contains the following components:
  • theft indicator
  • encoded ignition key
  • PATS transceiver module
  • powertrain control module (PCM)
  • standard corporate protocol (SCP) communication network
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Principles of Operation
The 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 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. This system is known as Securilock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in Continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (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. If equipped the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle's powertrain electronic control (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
This system contains a new feature named Unlimited Key Mode. This feature allows a customer to program more than eight keys to the vehicle if they request it. Each vehicle in Unlimited Key Mode is set up with a special Unlimited Transponder Security Key. This allows all the customer vehicles to share the same keys, but no other keys from outside can be used to operate the vehicles. For an individual customer, any randomly selected Security Key is acceptable. Refer to Unlimited Key Mode Programming in Key Programming Switch State Control in this section.
The PATS transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. The module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends data to the PCM.
The control functions are contained in the PCM. This module carries out all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling the engine enable. The PCM initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
All elements of the PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start.
The PATS uses a visual theft indicator. The 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 concern, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. The PATS system also flashes the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual deterrent.
The following will activate the PATS and will disable the vehicle from starting:
  • incorrectly encoded ignition key
  • damaged encoded ignition key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • damaged wiring
  • damaged transceiver
  • damaged PCM
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Large metallic objects, a second ignition key on the same key ring as the PATS ignition key or electronic devices on the key chain that can be use to purchase gasoline or similar items
  • Ignition lock cylinder
  • PATS key
  • Use of a non-PATS key
  • More than one PATS key on key chain
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 16 (15A)
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 20 (15A)
  • PATS transceiver module
  • Ignition switch
  • Loose or corroded connection(s)

1998 jeep cheeroke starter problem


Yes I believe that would fix the problem. It is under the hood mounted in the "power distribution box"


If this by slight chance doesn't work which I do think will work; Then you can try
The HEI system, used on 2.5L, 2.8L and 4.0L engines, is a pulse-triggered, transistorized controlled, inductive discharge ignition system. The entire HEI system (except for the ignition coil on fuel injected engines) is contained within the distributor cap.
The distributor, in addition to housing the mechanical and vacuum advance mechanisms, contains the electronic control module, and the magnetic triggering device. The magnetic pick-up assembly contains a permanent magnet, a pole piece with internal teeth, and a pick-up coil (not to be confused with the ignition coil).
In the HEI system, as in other electronic ignition systems, the breaker points have been replaced with an electronic switch-a transistor-which is located within the control module. This switching transistor performs the same function the points did in an conventional ignition system. It simply turns coil primary current on and off at the correct time. Essentially then, electronic and conventional ignition systems operate on the same principle.
The module which houses the switching transistor is controlled (turned on and off) by a magnetically generated impulse induced in the pick-up coil. When the teeth of the rotating timer align with the teeth of the pole piece, the induced voltage in the pick-up coil signals the electronic module to open the coil primary circuit. The primary current then decreases, and a high voltage is induced in the ignition coil secondary windings which is then directed through the rotor and high voltage leads (spark plug wires) to fire the spark plugs.
In essence then, the pick-up coil modu

Intermentent ignition shut off while driving


This sounds like the same problem the older AMC Jeeps with the 4.2 ltr engine had. Your 4.0 ltr is essentially the same engine, just re-worked for fuel injection. The problem was hairline cracks in the distributor cap, (they we're too small to see with the naked eye, but would expand and let moisture in when the engine heated up thus causing 'intermittentent' loss of power or even no spark at all). I would also change the fuel filter and then check 'fuel pressure', just to rule out any fuel related problems. Just remember that ALL engine problems are caused by a fuel, spark or timing problem. If these ideas don't help, check your ignition timing, if the spot where the light hits seems to 'waiver' (at a constant RPM), the timing chain needs replaced. This also can cause problems at highway speeds.
