Question about Ford Taurus
You can't - when the PATS (passive anti-theft system) is armed the engine management system (and maybe other stuff) is switched off.
The system is embedded into and integral with the vehicle electronics and it is practically impossible to defeat it or bypass it. Only sending the correct code will switch on the electronics and allow the engine to start - the code is stored in the vehicle memory and in a transponder embedded either in the ignition key or plip.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.
