Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
From my experience...
A non PATS coded key SHOULD not turn the STARTER...!
If ANTI-THEFT were invoked... you can attain a not start condition which the Owners Manual says must be cleared by the dealer.
A working PATS key should disable the anti theft... by turning the ignition on... ELSE try your other key.
The SecuriLock [PATS]
passive anti-theft system is not compatible with
non-Ford aftermarket remote start systems. Use of these systems may
result in vehicle starting problems and a loss of security protection.

When the ignition is turned to RUN or START, the
theft indicator will light for 3 seconds and then go
out. If the theft indicator stays on for an extended
period of time or flashes rapidly, have the system
serviced by your dealership or a qualified technician.
