Answer 1
Needs to be diagnosed, The Pats system is not part of the after market alarm, it's ford's anti theft system. -

Was removing my alarm a bad thing? -
Comment 2
No I have to do it all the time, the PATS is different, it's built with the truck. Usually it's the sender from the ignition switch to the pats module. -
Comment 3
How do you disconnect the Theft device? I would like to use standard keys. -
