...but not like you'd expect.
I was trying to program my Ranger for another PATS chip so I could insert it into my slide key.
I tried NUMEROUS positions for the chip, but nothing worked. There goes $5 I spent for the key... at least I had "fun" destroying the key and finding out how the keys are made.
Anyway, Just as I gave up, I decide to pull the truck out of the driveway and put the panels back together on the side of the street. I insert the first "good" key. NOTHING EXCEPT THE BLINKING "THEFT" LIGHT!!!
I'm thinking "ok... maybe I forgot to program THAT key." So I try the second "good" key. SAME RESULT!!!!
By now, I'm about to shyt bricks 'cause I'm blocking another car in teh driveway, and it's my only reliable transportation at the moment. (The motorcycle is BEHIND the other blocked car... and it's getting too cold for the bike.)
I try the third key... guess what.
At this point, I'm hyperventalating(sp) 'cause I can't get the truck started, it's blocking two other vehicles, and I have NOOOOOO money for a tow truck to bring it to a dealer let alone PAY THE DEALER to program everything for me.
While I'm buttoning everything up (panels), I'm cursing at myself for being such a retard. After I finish, I cross my fingers and try one key once more.
IT WORKED!!!! *PHEW!!!!!
I'm an idiot
