hi there

-

there is no way to by pass this system , there is about thrre modules that have to have ths info from the key in order for the truck to start

-

the code you are setting is for the truck was started with a non PATS key , meaning the chip in the key is no there or not programmed to the truck ,

-

if you have another key for this truck , try using it and see if the problem comes back if it does not , then the other key is bad,

-

or have two new keys programmed to the truck and this should cure the problem,

-

we can go back and forth on this page
