What is PATS key

- The PATS - securilock is otherwise called the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS), is an initiative of the Ford motors Company's immobilizer technology. The use of this technology by Ford motors started far back as 1996 which brought about a transformation to some selected model of the ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles. This securilock comes with a transponder key which is situated in the plastic head having a distinctive identification code. System

This system runs in a unique way. First and foremost, at the point when the vehicle's engine is ignited, a radio frequency signal is been sent by the onboard computer. The transponder picks up the signal and sends back a confirmation code to the computer in order to start up. Well as this process happens within a seconds. It is imperative to note that certain components of the car such as the fuel pump are not functional if the correct identification code is not transmitted to the computer. Replacement keys

Obtaining a replacement key should be so much of a worry. You can purchase it through a dealer or better still through a 3rd party. Irrespective of the source of purchase, it is obligatory that the key must be well- matched with the vehicle. Prior to the key being used, it is essential to get it programmed. To initiate the programming process, simply insert the original key and the new one into the ignition.

By making use of PATS I, Programming of another key can possibly be done using one key that is functional. For PATS II, two actively functional keys are necessary for the reprogramming process. This entire process guarantees that duplication of keys can only be carried out by the owner of the vehicle. In the event that another working key is not accessible, then your dealer needs to execute the programming process. History
