How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

NOTE: If additional keys are to be programmed, refer to Key Programming - Program a Key Using Two Programmed Keys. If the remaining keys are with the customer and are not available with the vehicle, then instruct the customer to refer to the Owners Guide under the "Programming Spare [SecuriLock ® (North America), Safeguard ® (U.K.) or PATS for all other markets] Keys Procedure" for instructions on programming the remaining keys.
  1. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to RUN.

I accidentaly broke my key for my 2000 Ford Explorer,and I changed out the ignition and collumn the car turns over but it wont start.But my anti theft is activated .How do I disable or turn off the an


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.

Ignition key assembly is locked up. bought a new one but have never changed one. got any instructions and/or diagrams to help me? It's a 1989 Plymouth Voyager 3.0 motor Tilt steering column with shifter on...


Take out the screws holding the upper and lower plastic column covers together. Pull the lower cover off. Now look at the ignition switch mounting bolts, they are anti theft. If you go to "Tools n More" or "Harbor Freight Tools" you should be able to purchase the special anti-theft tip you need in a set to take the screws out. Once you have unbolted the switch putting in the new one is easy.

My 1990 Cadillac Seville says (starting disabled,anti-theft system. wait 3 minutes then start.)But still does not start.


You may have a failed ignition lock cylinder The wires that are attached to the lock cylinder are probably broke therefore the resistor value of the key pelet is not getting to the theft system module there fore without tha signal the car will not start. to repair the car will need a new lock cylinder and at least one new key

I bought a ford windstar van from a lady who lost the keys to it they broke the ignition i replaced the ignition but now the alarm wont quit what do i do


This vehicle is equipped with PAT (Passive Anti Theft). You will not be able to remedy your problem until the ECM is paired with the new ignition and key. This must be done through the dealership.
