Can I bypass the PATS security????

I need to bypass the PATS security system on my 02 Excursion. It was stolen and I need to get it running to drive it to the dealership. I am trying to avoid paying for the tow.

I don't think it can be bypassed. Do you have keys for it?

I do have the keys. I was told I can install a aftermarket security alarm with remote start and it will bypass the PATS system.

If you have the original keys, I don't understand why it won't start. The aftermarket alarm and remote start wires into the PATS system to allow it to work.

remote start will bypass the pats system BUT it takes another module that is seperate from the alarm. See if a stereo shop has a module and try that. if it doesnt work alone you will need it anyway for remote start. 556S Ford PATS Remote Start Interface Module different ones for different years

How will an aftermarket remote start work with the glow plugs??? Do they set the delay longer?


Is there something special in the key, I have an '02 Excursion 7.3L I just bought and made a key copy for the wife at Wal-Mart...will it not work?

You have to get a key with the chip in it and it has to be programmed. If you have 2 original keys that work you can program the new key yourself. If you only have one key it has to be programmed by the dealer.
