How do I manualy disarm a 1996 Ford mustangs pats system?

I recived a 1996 Ford mustang from a soldier who was going down range. He had lost the key to the mustang and sold it to me. I removed the ignition and tried to start the vehicle, but the anti theft system prevents me from doing so. How can i remove the system, without having to have it towed to a dealership? I assure you the vehicle belongs to me. Not trying to steal it.

You are going to need the Ford dealer code reader and a pair of keys. They will be able to get the PATS system to like the new keys. If you go ahead and do two keys you can add more keys later. The PATS system is part of the engines computer so it isn't going anywhere. When I bought new keys got them from a guy on ebay for 13 dollars each, and they came in a Ford baggy

It will take more than just getting a new key cut from the dealership to start and drive your car. There is a sync operation that the dealership performs with your car key to allow the PATS system to recognize the computer chip in the car key and allow for it to start. You definitely will need to get the car towed to a local ford dealership and have them perform it for you. It could be expensive. I know that new keys for mustangs are about $100. Good luck and don't forget your title and ID when bringing it in.

Ford dealer is only way to get this baby running. Only the Ford computer scanner ( I thinnk its called WDS? ) is capable of re-programming the vehicle PATS system . You will also need to have 2 keys made if memory serves me correct. System cannot be programmed to just one key,must have 2 but can have more.

Try taking the title and registration with your ID to the local dealership, they may be able to cut a key for it. Otherwise try calling a locksmith.
