Chris (aka- Moose) :

If the PATS system has been tripped from a faulty component like the chip in the key or the transceiver then there is no way to resolve this in the driveway without a scan tool which can enter security access and program 2 keys back to the vehicle. There is a not a bypass method for this system, it is designed this way so its actually a effective theft deterent.
