engine , because i lost one of my key and ford is asking almost 100 $
CDN , so i would like to have a normal key to start my engine , so how
can i bypass the system it is a Windstar 2002 LX , with remote starter ,
so how can i do it .
thank's in advance for all your answer
Tape your good key to the steering column near the antenna
wire for the PATS (best to tape it inside the plastic cover
near the switch). Then any key with the correct key cut will
work. What sort of remote starter do you have? Many of those
just use a "good" PATS key to bypass the security. If so,
you potentially have two good keys that you can use to
program a third key. The key would be inside the bypass
thank's i did that and it is working perfectly , i i can ask you an other
question , here it is , i bought that van about 4 week's ago , and i am still
trying to find out how the remote starter works,
i can start the van remotely , but when i put the key in the ignition , and turn
it the van stop , i can start it with the key and go , but i know there is a
switch or something to do before , i have
tried the brake pedal , the headlight switch , the radio and many more , i did
not find the right one yet , and there is a small push switch near the hood
reealease , i push it , but i dont know what
it does , is there a way to find the right sequence to keep the engine running ,
i never had a remote starter , it is a first for me , so any help would be
appreciated , i think it is a ford remote
thank's in advance for all your help

You might have kick the brake pedal when you put the key in. For some model
car it is very sensitive.
It is part of the security feature, the engine will stop when the brake
you said you can start from remote, I do not think anything wrong with the
Try this, with the engine running (start by key), give a 'start' command
from the remote, now you should be
able to turn off & remove the key with the engine still running, if the
remote is working properlly.
Be sure your foot is not on the brake pedal while you doing this test.
BTW what is the make of your remote starter ?Don't you have a manual? Some
provide one from their web site.
