What Is Ford SecuriLock® Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS)?
SecuriLock is an engine immobilization system. It helps to prevent anyone from starting the engine without using a coded key programmed to your vehicle.
Using the wrong key could prevent the engine from starting. If you are unable to start the engine with a correctly coded key, there is a problem with the system. Contact your Ford Dealer to have your vehicle inspected.
Note: The Passive Anti-Theft System is not compatible with non-Ford aftermarket remote start systems. The use of these systems could result in vehicle starting problems and a loss of security protection.
