Hello, I have a 2000 Ford Excursion with the PATS system. It will not start. Replaced the starter
solenoid and still nothing. Checked starter and it is working. Battery is fine. The only way to start it is to put a screw driver on the solenoid with the key in the on position and it fires right up. Only 136k miles and once i start it this way it runs fine. This happened a year ago and i did something with the PATS and it fixed it but I cannot remember the steps. Help, Very respectfuly Mike
