My husband had the same problem with his vehicle, if he unhooked the battery cables for a few minutes and hooked them back on it would reset the alarm system. If you try it this way you can at least get it started until you can get help to unhook it.

When did Ford start using P.A.T

It's P.A.T.S - SecuriLock, also known as Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS), is Ford Motor Company's immobilizer technology. In 1996 the technology started showing up on select models of Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles.

2003 ford mustang gt anti theft light flashing engine will turn over but will not start

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.

Where is the anti theft box located on 2003 ford Taurus?

The PATS - passive anti-theft system is a program (software ) programmed into the instrument cluster , PCM - engine computer , GEM module etc... Plus behind the plastic shroud on steering column where the lock cylinder is located the passive anti-theft transceiver module ! You better know what your getting into when you start to mess with anti-theft systems , you can render your vehicle useless if your not careful ! Need factory scanner to program keys , to read trouble codes , check data etc... If you change transceiver module it will need to be programmed ! FORD DEALER ONLY ! You can program more keys but need to have original two keys that came with the vehicle or you can't do it >
Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) -Principles of Operation 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 non-Ford 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 powertrain control module (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.
The correct ignition key is a different design than prior model years. Please consult the Rotunda Key Ordering Guide for the correct part number.
So , before messing with something you know nothing about , do yourself a favor , take it to the nearest FORD dealer !

What does a car do when goes in theft mode

The car will not be able to start with your own key. This reset is for ford cars. Press loud speaker icon on the remote entry key. The alarm will sound. Now put your key in the ignition and to it to the on position. This will reset the alarm. Now turn key to off position. Then turn key back to the on position. The securilock indicator on the instrument panel will light up for 3 seconds and then turn off. The securilock feature is now deactivated. Turn key to off. Then try to start the car with the key. This procedure should work for most ford cars.

Having problems with my '04 f-150 securilock. does anyone know how to reset this so i can start my truck again?

I just had the same issue happen with my truck. I have a 2004 F-150 as well and while driving down the road the truck completely shut down on me and seems like the security system on it thinks my truck is stolen. The key fabs will not allow the truck to unlock or lock nor will the key activate anything to start the truck. Does anyone have any advice on how to reset the securilock system on it?
