2008 F150. PATS blinking and won't start

I had to change the ignition coil and then when I tried to start the vehicle. It won't start. The PATS warning is flashing. I brought the other master key which used to work as well and didn't help.
Please help if there is any advise!
The vehicle is overseas and there is no Ford dealer in that country.

Try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. If that doesn't work, You'll have to find a shop that has the scanner to program it.

Would need more info. Something is off,unplugged. Just changing a coil should have absolutely nothing in common with a pats failure

Turn the key to run only and let it set that way for a few minutes.
If it begins to flash a code, count the flashes for a two digit code and post it.
You can't rest anything by removing the battery or PATS would be useless as theft protection.
Good luck.

We've had similar problems and even power windows that wouldn't work and the disconnect took care of it. Your suggestion would help by getting a code to see what the problem is.
