OK, thanks much 00GreenLX! I read the PDF file. According to Ford, (in writing), "if the car has started IT IS NOT a PATS
issue". Now all I have to do is trust what it says (a human problem). The theft indicator is not flashing irregularly now. But no codeas about anything were ever stored. So, so much for codes.
Let me ask this- If it happens again (Stops while cruising, No Start, then normal start 3 hours later), with no code, what is my next SANE move? Ignition has been suggested. Any suggestions here? How much of the car is to be replaced, if I want to replace the "ignition"?
The type of PATS
system in my car, according to the PDF doc, is "Starter Interrupt Present". I don't know what that means, but I guess if PATS
wanted to prevent the car from running, it would not let the starter engage. If that's the whole system, well then, I guess my car didn't stop because of PATS
. If anyone can address my new IGNITION concerns, then, I'd appreciate that much. 00GreenLX, thanks a bunch
