2 keys... minimum ... !!!

Folk lore has it that AMAZON.. eBay & SUCH... HAVE
some magic electronix to accomplish
that ... (bad idea).

But the real truth is... Most folks have to cough up
serious money to have a LOCK-SMITH come out...
or...
To have their car TOWED to the dealer...
and then pay the FULL MARKET PRICE
for 2 new FOBs & 2 NEW KEYS...

Now I ask you: Why would they do that if there was a cheap & easy work around...???

(it is going to seriously bother you to find out how cheap & easy it would have been to have thse needed keys...
((I've had them cut for as little as $6... ))
Programing instructions are in your OWNERS MANUAL.

2002 mercury cougar starts once then stalls. Wont start just cranks. I have spark and can hear fuel pump come on.


Probably something with the PATS system , Passive anti theft system. Is there a red light in the middle of you dash that flashes fast when you try to start the car. Or is there a security light lit on you instrument cluster ? If you have a problem with PATS the engine computer will turn off fuel injectors in some cases !

How do you know when you need a new starter


The best and cheapest way to find out if it's the starter, battery, or alternator. Take it to autozone or kragen, wal-mart auto center pep boys. I know autozone, kragen, wal-mart will test your starter, alt., and battery for free, they will bring a machine out to the car and run the test. You can watch. Good Luck

Does a 2001 mercury cougar have a chip in the key


Yes, it does........

The Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) is fully passive in operation and requires no special procedures by the driver to arm or disarm the system. It is invisible to normal scrutiny and is operated by a miniature transponder within the key body. The transponder communicates with the powertrain control module through a transceiver mounted around the ignition switch lock barrel. The PATS functionality is incorporated within the powertrain control module.

PATS may be identified by a larger than normal sized ignition key. A larger sized ignition key indicates the presence of the transponder that controls the system.

The transponder code reading is carried out when the key. having been inserted into the ignition lock barrel is turned from position "0" to position "II" to crank the engine. If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) receives the correct code the engine will start. If the PCM receives either no code or an incorrect code the engine will not crank and PATS remains armed and the engine immobilised.

Anti-Theft Indicator
Whenever the ignition is switched on the anti-theft indicator will remain on for three seconds while the system reads the ignition key code.

The anti-theft indicator will flash rapidly or glow continuously after the initial three seconds to indicate the PATS has immobilised the vehicle.

I tried to get wal-mart to change my oil but they said that they couldn't do it because the screw or thread didn't fit the filter. Could you tell me what size screw/thread I need for my car.


Your standard drain plug on your vehicle shows to be a M15-1.5 mm. This basically means that the size is metric 15 and the thread pitch is 1.5millimeters. The oil filter that came on your car is an equilalent to a Fram PH-3600 or other filter such as STP-3600.

Wal-Mart is famous for not wanting to service vehicles if any item looks out of place. I assume they do not want the headaches if they run into a leak or damage. We get alot of these cases at the shop.

I would suggest letting a mechanic or shop look at your filter and drain plug if you are not sure. If there is damage to your drain plug then oversize plugs are available.

Good Luck and let me know how you come out!!

The anti theft ligth is flashing and it wont let me start the car i have a key but it does nothing


The security system has armed itself and needs to be disarmed.... unfortunately, this vehicle has the FORD PATS key based engine disabling system, and it's not recognizing the chip in your
key...if you have another key, try it. You can also try locking and unlocking the doors with the key to disarm. Disconnect negative terminal on the battery for at least 30 minutes, sometimes this will let the capicators drain and it will start. Other than that u'll need a reprogram to get it back to normal. Good luck---I hope this helps.

I had a key made and it desabled the security system in my 1999 mercury cougar and now the car wont start and I need to have it reset.


All you have to do to reset the antitheft system is to lock the doors with the key fob.

Your new key has to be programmed to your engine computer (PCM) before it will work.

To program, follow the directions in your owner manual. You need 2 already rpogrammed keys to do this.

If you don't have 2 programmed keys, your dealer will have to use his diagnositc tool to retrieve the information from the computer. Always have 2 programmed keys. I actually keep 3 in case I lose one, I still have 2 to program a 3rd one myself.

If you have AAA, have it towed to the delaer as a "no Start" so you don't have to pay the tow charge.

I assume this new ket is your only key now, or you could drive to the dealer with your spare key.

I work for a garage and we have a 1998 mystique that wont start we were wondering if there was some sort of anti-theft systeme that we dont know about and also we would like to have the were abouts of the...


Starting System
The function of the starting system is to crank the engine at a speed fast enough to allow the engine to start. Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used in the system because of the large currents required.
The starting system consists of a gear reduced starter motor, battery, remote control switch (ignition switch) and relay.
Vehicles equipped with automatic transaxle have a transmission range sensor attached to the circuit which prevents operation of the starter motor unless NEUTRAL or PARK are selected.
Vehicles equipped with a manual transaxle have a start inhibit switch in the starter control circuit, which prevents operation of the starter motor unless the clutch pedal is in the applied position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The anti - theft protection system provides protection from unauthorized entry into the passenger compartment.
The system is controlled by an anti - theft alarm control. When armed, unauthorized entry into the vehicle is detected by lamp switches.
Once triggered, the system flashes the headlamps, the parking lamps, the alarm indicator, and sounds the horn. In addition, the starter circuit is disabled to prevent starting the vehicle until the system is disarmed.
System Arming
The system will be armed by the remote entry transmitter when the following input sequence is followed:
  1. Turn the ignition switch off and remove the key.
  1. Close all doors (unlocked).
  1. Press the LOCK button on a transmitter to lock doors. Alarm warning lamp will turn on.
  1. Wait for the anti - theft warning lamp to turn off.
The system will also be armed when the following input sequence is followed:
  1. Turn the ignition switch off and remove the key.
  1. Open a door. Alarm warning lamp will flash.
  1. Lock doors with power door switches. Alarm warning lamp will now glow steadily.
  1. Close all doors.
  1. Wait for the anti - theft warning lamp to turn off.
Opening any door will activate the alarm after the alarm is armed.
Disarming an Untriggered System
The system can be disarmed by performing one of the following procedures.
  • Driver or RH front door is unlocked with a key.
  • Driver door is unlocked by pressing the UNLOCK button of a remote entry transmitter.
  • If remaining in the vehicle, turn the ignition switch to ON or ACC position.
System Triggering
The armed alarm system will be triggered if any door is opened without using a key or a remote entry transmitter to unlock the door first.
Disarming a Triggered System
Carry out either of the following steps will disarm the triggered alarm system.
  • Driver or RH front door is unlocked with a key.
  • Driver door is unlocked by pressing the UNLOCK button of a remote entry transmitter.
Two minutes and 45 seconds after the system has been triggered, the horns and exterior lamps will shut off automatically. The system will then reset to an armed state and will trigger again if another intrusion occurs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS)
The Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS), known as SecuriLock, is fully passive in operation and requires no special procedures by the driver to arm or disarm the system. It is invisible to normal scrutiny and is operated by a transponder within the key body. This communicates with the module through a transceiver mounted around the ignition switch lock barrel.
The PATS functionality is incorporated within the powertrain control module.
PATS keys contain an electronic device inside, and are physically larger than a non-PATS key.
The transponder code reading is carried out when the key is inserted into the ignition lock barrel, and turned from position 0' to position II' or III' to crank the engine. If the PCM receives the correct code signal, the engine will start. Should the code received not be recognized, the engine will not crank as the PATS is still armed and the engine immobilized.
Anti-Theft Indicator
Whenever the ignition is switched on the anti-theft indicator will remain on for three seconds while the system carries out an initial ignition key-read.
The anti-theft indicator will flash rapidly for three seconds to indicate the PATS has immobilized the vehicle.
For additional information on the PATS fault codes, refer to the Diagnosis and Testing section.

Reset my anti theft system so my truck will start


If the theft light is flashing with the proper key in the ignition then either the chip in the key is bad or the transceiver on the ignition cylinder is faulty. The PATS system is built into the PCM.
