Curious to know how they got around the PATS system. The system came out in 1996 and by the 2000's almost all Fords had it. My 02 Excursion and 01 Explorer had it.

At least they found it and it wasn't destroyed! They do make a guard that bolts in behind he door handle to stop someone (or slow them down) from breaking in.

Did you try the instructions here?

the hardest part generally is finding these instructions.


That was a little difficult. I had to download it to my computer to use those instructions.

I find that it generally helps to open RV.NET in two or more totally independent windows.

Some thieves steal a vehicle and park it to see if it has a tracking system on it and then pick it up later.

Super Duty trucks didn't get the PATS system until 2008

My 2000 F250 was stolen several years ago when my dad still owned it. Fortunately he got the truck back with little damage. I might go the kill switch route as well. I use a Club when I'm parked in public areas but I know those are defeated pretty easily by someone who really wants the truck.

I guess I need to look into this for my truck. My tuner has a no-start setting, which I use, but the read out on the dash says “ns” so that is kind of easy to figure out.
