Do you have a key with a resister in it? If you do then all you have to do is measure the resistance of the key and jump the wiring with the same resistance

If the alarm starts go off when set and not unlocked with remote or key, inserting the programmed key into the ignition and starting will disarm the system, shut off the horn and flashing lights and allow the vehicle to start.

My boyfriend replaced the key cylinder and steering column has a box It has wiring I need a diagram or how to wire it 1998 ford expedition xlt it cranks but doesn't start.??


That box is for the anti-theft system , he changed the lock cylinder . You need new PATS keys . PATS - passive anti theft system .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 electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends the data to the instrument cluster.
And the dealer is the only one that can program the keys . or a mobile lock smith .

It is a transponder system and I haven't come up with any way to get around it without spare keys. If you have only one key you'll have to make a trip to the dealer.
