The old key may have an induction chip in to deactivate the anti theft system. Does it have a red insert (chip) in the key handle? Get the old key and place it as close to the ignition barrel as possible. Seen this done on a number of occasions to save paying for a key reprogram.

Look in ur 2004 freestar book and find the fuse it should be #9 (PATS FUSE)under the driver dash. Take the fuse out the lil red light on dash will not light anymore and ur van will start and keep the fuse out.

Will not start


The Passive Anti-Thft System (PATS) in your vehicle prevents the vehicle from being started with the wrong key. Even if the key is mechanically able to turn the ignition lock cylinder, the digital signal from the key must be programmed so the PATS will accept the signal from the new key.
You have a couple of choices. You can change the lock cylinder out with the lock cylinder from the original steering column so the original keys can be used. You can remove the lock cylinder from the new column and have a locksmith re-key the lock cylinder to accept the original keys, then reinstall it into the new steering column. Or you can take the entire vehicle to a professional auto service facility that has the computer equipment necessary to reprogram your computer to accept the new keys.

LOST THE ONLY KEY TO MY 2000 FORD EXPLORER. HOW CAN I GET A NEW ONE?


Go to dealer and bring your proof of id and paper work for vehicle. There maybe an additional programing fee, this is normal protocol. Or try a local locksmith but make sure you tell them over the phone your vehicle info.

Intermittently, an interior "alarm" goes off on my 2004 ford freestar and stays on for longer than 30 minutes no matter what we do. how do we turn it off? this is not the anti-theft alarm. this is a solid...


this is in fact, part of your factory alarm... called PATS (passive anti theft system)

The actual "horn" should be coming from the rear right side of the cabin or behind the dash

This horn is built into the "computer" and there is little you can do at this point other than going to the dealer.

The dealer should be able to reprogram the modules in question to eliminate the "horn"

The key(s) may need to be reprogramed to the ignition. Car security issue I think, from what you are saying.
