Damn Chipped Keys...

My used 2002 ranger only came with one chipped key.
Wanted to get a spair made $90 bucks ouch!
I know if I had two chipped keys I could make a third for about $10 bucks.

But how do I make a second key...cheaply?
I'm open to all suggestions,
Is it possable to disable the senser in the truck so any non-chipped key will work?

Thanks Don

You can program new keys on your own but you need 2 original keys. No you can't remove the PATS system without going to the dealers and spending money.

Go to any key shop and have some spares made. take the PATS key, cut the plastic chipped piece off and zip tie it under the ignition inside the the column cover. ruins the original but it works

and then your none programmed key will work?

Fair warning. When you disable/bypass the PATS (which is basically what your doing), stealing your vehicle just became easier.
