Passive Anti-theft Sys light on dashboard keeps flashing even when car is locked on 2005 Ford Focus

Hi, I think the Passive Anti-theft System (PATS) of my 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SES has gone bad. The car starts but the PATS light in the dash board keeps flashing if I turn the ignition off, also when the key if removed from the ignition and when I get out of the car and lock it. In all the above instances the PATS light keeps flashing. How can I reset it or whats wrong with the car?

I think it is supposed to flash to alert a wood be thief that your car has an alarm system! Is it explained in your owner's manual.
