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.

I have a f150 2000 v8 triton motor, i drove it the other day it started fine, than I went to start it again and it wouldnt start, than it started when i took to garage they said it was fuel pump and


If the anti-theft light is flashing, I would think it is a problem with the key or the anti-theft system. The system would kill the power to the fuel system.

it sounds like you have a problem with the anti-theft system which should be checked out at a shop that has the capability to fix this or the dealer.it may be a problem with the theft portion of the computer.

No start cranks but does not fire has spark. has fuel if bypassed by relay fuses good new fuel pump a year ago has fuel replaced battery froze, has prostart remote start, been in 8 years no issues 2000...


check to see if the security light or anti theft light flashes. if that is the case, sounds like the bypass for the remote starter may be causeing the no start by tripping the anti theft system. Remove remote starter and bypass system and join any cut wires back together that may be cut for remote starter. Try starting, if theft light still flashes leave key in the on position after attempted start for 15 minutes till theft light goes solid, turn off and try again. Repeat process for three times to re-learn factory theft system in vehicle. If problem still persists, then take to your local dealer to reprogram factory theft module in the cluster.

The car doesn´t start the battery is ok fuees ok


Do you have any check engine lights on? Is your anti-theft light flashing? If so, put key in igniton, turn to on (NOT START) leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 MINUTES
As SOON as theft light turns off, try to start.

There is a problem with your key.
