98 Mustang Won't Crank

Unread postby lowranger96 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:09 am

98 Mustang originally a V6 car. Now has a turbo 2v PI engine with 98 4.6 ECU (BAI2)

I burned a chip and turned the pats off (I think).
Theft light is blinking and the car will not crank. The key, pats module, and cluster all match. I'm not really sure what's going on here. Apparently there are some codes that i can pull to maybe get an idea on where the issue is at which I will do today.

Anyone have issues or experience with this?

with pats disabled the theft light will blink since pats isn't functioning correctly to turn it off

was the car running after u burned the chip or it stopped started at that same time. If it stopped running at that same time then the chip may be corrupt. If it has been running after you disabled pats then you have other issues.

in that case PATS is prob not the issue, best to re enable it you can see if pats is working by the theft light turning off with tbe ignition on

I tried last night to get it to crank with no chip in it, but the ecu still doesn't match the key, pats module, or cluster. I'm starting to think maybe the pats module or the chip in the key has died
