Sounds like either you need to replace the cylinder itself or the PATS ring is going bad behind the cylinder. I will forewarn, if you unplug that ring or change the cylinder, you will need to program the keys back to the car. It will think you are stealing it and it will shut the PCM down so don't change it until you have a locksmith that can do key programming ready to come out or you are at the Ford dealership ready to do the programming. Otherwise you will pay for a tow and that will make you unhappy.
