hi

do you have a remote starter?

when a key is inserted into the ignition and the switch turned on, a signal is sent to the key which modifies the signal by adding the unique id # XXXXX the signal and sent back to the pats transceiver, if the key id # XXXXX XXXXX the pats system will not allow the vehicle to start, you may have a damaged key, or a concern within the system

hi

All elements of PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start

do you have access to a scanner to check for codes, if so check codes and get back to me

No I do not have access to a scanner. Can you tell me some things to try.
Expert:  FORDFXR replied 9 years ago.

ok

check for battery voltage at the coil (red with light green wire) and at the injector (red wire)
check for ground pulse at the coil and at the injectors - - put the ground clamp of the test light on the battery(+) and the other end to the coil or injector see if it pulses when the engine is cranked.
