My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Unfortunately no you can;t bypass the coil to make it spark. It is controlled by the PCM for the timing of when to spark and for what cylinder. When the PATS system activates, it shuts that down and the fuel pump down to prevent the theft of the car. I wish it was that easy to bypass for that would save a lot of tow bills, but the system is locked down pretty good to not allow that.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

That video is the only way I know how. I usually will just get a key and program it on 99.9% of the vehicle. I did the bypass 2 times and that is it and it worked both times.
