how to reset anti theft on 2001 explorer
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

There is not a reset button or a way to reset a factory installed OEM PATS anti theft system. Sometimes though disconnecting both battery cables and holding them together for one minute then reconnecting. Next lock and unlock the door with the remote and key. Then try to start. If the theft light still blinks rapid when the key is in the run position. This means 2 keys need to be reprogrammed back to the vehicle via a scan tool or there is a part in the PATS system that has failed and there are trouble codes stored.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

Thanks Chris
