Securilock = Pats System

In my reading GM came up with the Securilock System and Ford adapted the program that is the PATS System
Has anybody out there read the artical instruction how to disable, bypass the GM Securilock System ? The artical shows it beacuse of the flaws in the System. The instuctions are very detailed . If this is the same system that is now on Fords than why can't the same process disable it on the Ford Pats System since it is the Secuirlock GM theft System?????
There is no such thing as (Impossible) as I have been told about this Ford System

Exclamation Re: Securilock = Pats System

They are totally different systems and I've never heard of GM developing the SecurLock system for Ford. GM's system is PassLock. The original PassLock uses a key with a resistor chip on the blade that power is passed through, which the module checks the returning voltage, and in turn allows vehicle starting by sending a signal to the PCM. The next generation PassLock doesn't have a key chip, it just looks at the ignition cylinder switch and sees that it turns and has the correct voltage returned.

The original system could be disabled by wiring resistors into the sense circuit, but you had to figure out the correct resistance for the particular car you worked on.

Re: Securilock = Pats System

I did not mean that GM developed the Pass lock for ford.
Yes I was wrong in the name. I was typing what i was reading.
My point is the systems are so much in common to me they some of the information I read would help in the process of obtaining the info a person needs to get there car back on the road....Like myself.
By using a ohm meter a person could obtain the correct resistance to add the right resistor inline to fool the computer .
I am so frustrated in trying to figure out why my car won't start.
Whatever comes in sight I read it.....
The dealer is so expensive who can even afford them now days and we all know they are going to take advantage of us all if they can.
