Can anyone help try to remedy a PATS code 16 that's coming up on my 1999 Cobra? Everything is fine except the anti-theft. It's giving me a code 16. Any ideas?

A lot of people just have PATS turned off in the tune, and are done with it.

If you have a second key, try using it.

PATS - Passive Anti-Theft System

EECV - Electronic Engine Control Series 5

The ignition key has a chip in it that is read by the EECV module. Either the key's chip is bad, or the EECV's wiring or module is bad. Do you have any other accessories installed, such as a remote start device?

Check for any blown fuses
Try another key
