Pfffft haha, Marine Engine grey is that color, son!

You should paint that in your garage, it'd be some work while it's installed, but worth it.

Oh, and teaser pics suck!

How long did it take you to clean up the frame? Did you just wire brush then coat with POR15? Or something else???

not too long, i used a wire brush, sanding block and then used a good amount of primer and then some bedliner. i would like to do a coat of POR15 or herc it at somepoint over it, but i didnt have it at the time i did it.

i still have to take off the bed and do the rear, but its better than what it was thats for sure

Andy, are you aware that the PATS system for 2001+ Rangers is quite a bit different from the 99 Explorer? The Explorer has a separate PATS module but those functions are incorporated into the PCM on your 2002 Ranger. So, simply swapping in the Explorer PCM in place of the Ranger's will disable your stock PATS and the engine will not run.

To make it work, you will need to add the Explorer PATS Control Module and wiring and then change over to the Ex PATS keys and Transeiver Module. You will also need to add a ground for the starter relay because the starter is not PATS controlled in the Explorer system.

After all of the hardware changes are made, then the PATS module can be taught to recognize the new keys.

Can't you just override the PATS system all together? There has got to be a way. That has got to be simpler.

The PCM requires two way communication with the PATS module before it will command fuel and spark. The only way around it would be to go into the software and turn off the "PATS Hardware Present" parameter. That would require access into the calibration strategy which most of us don't have.

hmm thanks Bob. thats about the step im at so i better get that all figured out. that was a good catch. so i will need an Ex pats module and keys. guess ive got some more crap to get. damn new cars


do you think a ford dealer guy could take pats off if i wanted? i really dont give a **** if its on or not. i just want to be able to start the truck and lock it

Also, if the pats is off and i go that route. can you just use the ranger key then? it should go in and turn it still, just now it doesnt need the pats confirmation to go ahead and start right?

Correct me if I'm wrong. But if he has the original Exp key couldn't he just use an alarm bypass module, and wire that in to bypass pats? You could pull the key if you wanted to disable it, or wire it to a toggle switch.

I believe that you are correct - if you could get the PATS HP switch turned off in software, then you should be able to use your Ranger keys to operate the ignition lock. I don't think a dealer has access to that part of the calibration, though. You could ask someone like Bamachips if they can do it but then you'd be into a $400 custom calibration.

Here is a How-to for the 2001+ PATS rewire if you need it. It also shows how to correct the tachometer for 8 cylinders and how to fix the VSS:
