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

    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.

    How do you disconnect the Theft device? I would like to use standard keys.
