Question Re: Disabling PATS

No, it cannot be disabled. Wouldn't try fooling with it either. What reason do you have for disabling it???

Re: Disabling PATS

It cant be disabled and if you lost it the best way to have it "disabled" is to buy a new one and program it. Once you program a new PATS the older ones will no longer work.

Re: Disabling PATS

Well you can get a chip and hide it under the steering column cover. Then a regular key will work and the PATS will be stupid.

Re: Disabling PATS

I'm with mre_power on this. Not all locksmiths can program the key's, that's why he said a gooooood locksmith. The equipment costs anywhere from $3,500.00-$5,000.00 and usually they have to pay for updates every year or two. So don't expect it to be cheap.
