Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Have you checked for codes in the computer?
Can I start by getting your VIN?
Thank you for that information. Have you tried another ignition key?
You might just have a bad key.
Ok, no problem.
Provided the ignition key is OK, then the problem is likley to be a bad PATS transiever (ring around key) or a wiring issue to the PATS security system. However, it is possible that the key itself may just be at fault.
You can get it scanned for codes and there will likley be a code stored in the computer related to the security system which will lead you in the right direction. We usually see a bad key or PATS transiever causing this problem.
The computer on board the truck
The ring around the lock cylinder on the steering column is the PATS transiever which could be bad causing this no crank condition.
It is number 6 in the picture.
