I have searched and searched. My daughters '98 V6 Stang is giving me fits. Some days the car starts fine.....other days the PATS kicks in. Would like to just bypass the darn thing.
I don't think a dealer would disable PATS, there isn't really an upside to them. I would call some local Mustang Tuner shops in your area, any decent one should be familiar with the system and how to disable it.I have called 6 different dealerships and they all say it cannot be disabled.
I have no idea what handheld tuner can eliminate PATS.What hand held can do this? Also, if I can get it to work, does the key have to be in the ignition or just close to the transponder? I was thinking it only had to be in range. I thought about storing it close to the transponder and using a regular key.
Am I on the right track?
I live in Ballwin, but work in Dellwood, so Spanish Lake isn't far at all from where I work.Thanks. I'm going to look at the wires a little closer when the weather breaks. Hiding the key within range would theoretically allow me to use a regular key. It is my, soon to be 16 year old, daughters car. She will lose the keys!!! Lol.
What part of STL are you in? I am originally from Spanish Lake.
What handheld tuner will disable the PATS?
They are full of it. Had to disable it on my brothers Terminator conversion. We used a SCT handheld with a custom tune to disable the PATS. To write the tune you need special software, call some local performance shops and see if they can do it.I have called 6 different dealerships and they all say it cannot be disabled.
