SOURCE: How do you replace the ignition switch in a 1999 Ford Explorer?

This is very easy to replace. Had to replace my ignition switch on my 96 ford explorer ... Just went to Auto Zone got the switch, which was cheap and then changed it. Has instructions with it, but there is a tiny hole on the steering wheel column that you need something small to fit in and there is a spot you need to push in there, may have to wiggle around to find it, you will know when you find it and the ignition will pop out and then just pull it out, take the new one line it up and pop it in. Job done. :)

SOURCE: wiring a ford explorer sport for a trailer

I can only assume your not the orignal owner/purchaser of this '99 Explorer, so im gonna say no if it doesnt have a factory trailer hitch and towing package. did you have an after market hitch installed on this truck? if not, please dont tell me you plan to use the "cheesy" factory drilled hole in the rear bumper (near/below the license plate area)? BAD IDEA if thats the case, the bumper brackets cant handle much of a load at all, bad idea for them to even put that stupid hole there to begin with. Also, if you see there isnt a "factory" harness, you can go to your local auto parts store and pick 1 up designed specifically for that vehicle within a range of model years sharing that same platform, eg. 1997-2001 model years may all use the same harness set. let me know how it turns out and if this even helped you in any way. Good luck.

Where is the pats override button located? specific under dash location. 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD


There is no PATS override button. PATS is Passive Anti-Theft System. It is a transponder chip in the key, and a transceiver ring around the ignition lock cylinder. The Ring looks for the correct chip in a key in order to allow the vehicle to start. A bypass or override button in the vehicle completely advantage of having the chip system and would render is useless in entirety.

I lost the keys to my 1999 Ford explorer so I changed the steering column and its stuck in theft mode. Is there any way to get around the theft system


You need a mobile lock smith to come an program new keys for the PATS - passive anti-theft system . The electronics for the theft system are intertwined in the engine computer PCM/ECM , the instrument cluster , an theft deterrent module .

2002 Ford Explorer. Drove to the store turned it off went in came out 2 minutes later and it won't start or even make a noise but it is getting power. What could it be?


Is the red light on the top center of the dash pad flashing fast when trying to start ? The engine doesn't turn over ?
Anti-theft system problem !
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. This 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 problem, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. PATS also "blips" the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual theft deterrent.
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.
The 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. Remote start systems must be removed before investigation of PATS-related No Start issues.

2001 ford expedition theft light flashing rapidly and vehicle won't start only happens when it rains


because you say it only happens in the rain leads me to believe that there is a bare wire connected to the ignition that is now jumping to another because of the water/moisture around it also the actual computer's connector can not be tight enough and is letting the moisture in then when the weather is dry the car starts and runs fine all day long things to check are /a/ all ignition related wires for the computer /the coils/the computer /the power distribution box under the hood must be inspected any wire related to the theft pats system will activate the antitheft system so check that to and also look for moisture inside the vehicle a new windshield may be leaking a small amount of water in and it's making contact with the pats unit on the steering column or the wires

2004 Ford Explorer won't start. Think we need to


it resets itself.

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 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 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 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 PATS will be activated and will disable the vehicle from starting if there is a:
  • incorrectly encoded ignition key
  • damaged encoded ignition key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • damaged wiring
  • damaged transceiver
  • damaged PCM
