Ford vehicles have an active as well passive anti-theft system. A passive anti-theft system is comprised an ignition key with a transponder which signals the engine’s start. This cannot be changed by any other than licensed dealers. It takes only minutes to disarm and then reset the factory alarm.
For the alarm to be deactivated, simply press the unlock key on your car’s key fob. To unlock your driver’s door if you have lost the remote control for your car, the PATS programed key can be used. Next, insert the key into the ignition. Turn the key to “on”. You should see the vehicle’s battery on but not its engine.
