Anyone know how to disable the pats thingy that only lets you use the computer chip keys without destroying the car

And, is there a way to take the brake interlock off so that the car will come out of park without the brake being applied.

you can disable the brake interlock by dissasembling and removing the lock mechanism from the shifter assembly.

As for pats: have your ECU reflashed to the tune of a few hundred bucks, or find an ecu from a simmilar car (same year and engine) with out pats.

I didn't quite get that. There isn't a chip located somewhere that can be unplugged. I've tried regular keys and when you put them in run position i can hear the fuel system charge up but when i put it to start then everything goes dead and back to run it comes back onl

The easist way to "disable" PATS is to cut the head of a PATS key and zip-tie it in place in the steering column. Kinda defeats the purpose of the system, but if you're prone to losing the expensive key, it's one way to do it.

The only thing that I would have to take apart is a key. A good place would be right near the ignition?

Turn the key to "Off" (it's between "Lock" and "Run") and you won't need to use the brake to shift out of park.

you could also hook up a PATSbyass module. they are for use with remote starting a PATS car. I have the part number if you want. hook it up so it comes on with the ignition and you're good to go. it fits a ring around the key cyinder inside the steering column so you can't see it. the system seems to be extremely sensitive. when I was working on my remote start, I thought of just sticking a key somewhere temporarily until I could get my hands on a bypass module. but the only place I could put it where the car would start was right in the ignition. really, an inch away from the ignition, and it wouldn't start. so if you can get a key inside the steering column, and that close to the ignition cylinder. that should work. if not, use a bypass module. pretty easy, and it costs about 30$. now the downside is that if you are doing this because of lost keys...you need 2 keys to program the module. you program it just like you would an extra key. so if you are missing a key, you're SOL with that plan.
