Bypass Computer PATS

I need to replace my 1998 Ford F150 Computer with a newer 2000 Ford F150 computer due to an engine and transmission replacement. The problem is the 2000 computer is PATS and my older truck does not use the PATS transponder key, PATS module in the steering column, and PATS instrument cluster. Do you make a module or way that I can enable the 2000 computer? How can I bypass or enable the 2000 computer without having to replace the instrument cluster, steering column, keys etc? Thanks in advance,

In search of my own PATS related issue, i've seen quite a few documents with relative info. from what i've been able to gather from these, the EEC and PCM must be replaced together ('98 and newer) as they are coded to each other as well as a key coded to them. to do this, assuming you did get both replaced as new units and not pulled from junkers, you must also aquire a ignition cylinder equipped for reading a PATS key (might as well be a 2000). this is all speculation, but i believe you could mount the new cylinder somewhere in the dash, perhaps behind the glove box, many models have extra room back there. then run the PATS related wiring to the new cylinder, and tow it off to a dealer. coding the key in that year model computer requires the proprietary ford scanning tool and about half an hour minimum. once coded, you can leave the key installed in the dash and use your old one to start the truck as normal. if you were unfortunate enough to get your PCM from a junker, be prepared to pay quite a bit, since you'll need yet another PCM and EEC. i've seen many a forum post with claims of $1200 bills for replacement and coding of a key. i dont believe your instrument cluster will be 100% compatible either but theres something to hope for.

Electronic accelerator symbol is lit, and truck hesitates on take off

Your going to need to send this truck in for diagnostics. With the ECU deciding to put the engine into "Limp Mode" The engine light should also be on. The ECU should be scanned for active and pending codes. There are too many variables and I would need more information to help. I will say that a clogged air-filter, a dirty or defective MAF sensor, or sludge inside the fuel system, could cause this symptom. But it could be anything really. The engine, transmission and fuel system can affect performance. If you could get me more information or details, maybe I can help you narrow it down. Good luck.
