Herein, where is the Pats system on a Ford?
On some late model vehicles, the PATS module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. As you turn the key to the RUN or START position, the PATS control module initiates the key interrogation routine.
if you want to bypaas the pats system you could buy a alarm pats module, use a relay to power it off of a ingition circuit that stays hot as long as key is on position. then as long as you got two keys you can program the module like a third key. that way you could use a regular key in the ignition.
