Fixed My PATS "Issue"
So for quite some time now I thought I had the dreaded PATS issue. Started by not starting and the theft light flashing intermittently, went a few weeks with a couple times of this. Then stopped a while then started again and so on, I was always able to get it started again though. This lasted all summer long. I changed the battery in my key, got a new key made at the dealer, still the same issue. Started to look into tuners and was going to order one tomorrow and have PATS turned off completely. Thought today I would give it one more shot, and turned out that in both keys I have the batteries were shot. It just hit me that I should spend a few bucks on some new batteries and try that, and wham it worked! Just my luck that the new key had a bad battery, only a few months old, and the battery I repleaced in the original key (also an aftermarket programmed copy) a couple months ago was bad too. I assume they were both bad since they now both work. I couldnt start the car at all for the last month, and as soon as I switched the batteries it fired up, no issues. I wonder how many times this has happened to people since Im sure most of the small watch type batteries sit on the store shelf for quite a while, just a thought that this simple thing could have happened to others. I know those types of batteries dont sell often and do sit on the shelf for a long time, as I work at a place that sells them. Even though the expiration date may be OK they may lose some life? I dont know? Either way it worked out for me today and it only cost a few bucks, things dont work like this for me ever so I was excited to post, even though I know no one will care, lol.
