Re: cluster swap

If you have a alarm this might help you out


but if it's me, on this car, I would suggest
the DIRECTED 555F bypass kit to get around the
issue for good.

This Bypass Module is designed to momentarilly
allow the engine to remote start by sending a proper
coded pulse to open the fuel rail passlock injector
cut off circuit.

The output from an alarm
would then shut down the pulse, once it has detected
the engine has engaged, and preserve the integrity
of the PATS system.

That is it's designed purpose.

However this input wire on
the 555f module, instead of going to a
momentary ground pulse from an
alarm would go to a
constant chassis ground, through
the bypass module, grounding out the PATS.
The PATS would always be bypassed as long
as that wire is chassis grounded.
this does work on bypassing
trnasponder in most all FORD vehicles
Also, this is a self learning, resistor sensing
and adjusting module. Once the PATS wires have been tapped,
you would press the program button to learn,
and it does. The car should then allow start
with any hardware store key.
