#1479773 Stupid crazy shit Ford Explorer

Posted by Rjawm on 13 April 2017 - 01:39 PM

96 to early 98 can be programmed with 1 key, not that you have even one key.  Ford changed it to 2 keys later after they figured out that meant valets could easily add a key while in their lot.

 

You should be able to follow the new master key learn process and have it work, it just a long boring process with the long waits in-between steps and high chance of missing the 5 minute windows for the next step due to nodding off lol.

 

 

Not sure if you know this already but the PATS system isn't in the tumbler, it's the weird ring mounted around the tumbler in the column.  Once at least one key is programmed you can remove that ring, zip tie a working key to it (you can cut off the "key" part to make it easier), stuff it in the lower dash, and then use any normal non-chipped key to start the vehicle.  It also means any idiot with a screwdriver can start it too, as you have completely bypassed the system permanently.  This was also the normal method used to bypass the systems in the early days of installing aftermarket remote starts in these vehicles.

 

There are a couple vids on YouTube that explain how to bypass the controls on the motor as well, so then there is no need for a PATS chipped key at all.  It's somewhat involved, digging into control boxes and rerouting the wires as needed but it seems less involved with a higher chance of success than the carb mounted on a throttle body technique.

 

The last option I would throw out is to find the compatible intake from an earlier non-EFI, non-PATS engine and go that route.  Should be able to stay low on the costs to stay within the "regs" of the $500 car.  Could also sell off some unneeded parts to offset the costs too, very commonly done.

I figured it was a person who took the statement, "giv'em the beans." a little too literal...

Yeah,cannot get a hangover if you keep drinking.  :thumbup:

 

 

 

Yeah,he copped some shit for that but at the end of the day the others did not make it over the line and "excuses" don't win medals.

 

Definitely give him respect.

 

The best part of the whole thing, he got fucked out of a medal 4 years earlier due to someone crashing him out, and then had 2 back to back wins the night of the gold medal due to the rest of the pack crashing.

 

Not really stating the story for the Aussies, I figure you know your own history, haha.

What a waste of a thread with a legitimate question.

 

Next comes the decent into Insomniacs posts, then Dad comes in with the lock.

#1477403 Cheap Container Ideas For Parts Storage?

Posted by Rjawm on 04 April 2017 - 12:45 PM

how about these 

as cheap as your going to find for purchase 

located at costco

https://h2savecom.fi...pg?w=1024&h=538

 

These are what I go with in my shop.  Even got the wife on them for her stuff in the garage.  It's really nice when all your containers match to make a clean, square, and stable stack.

No self respecting Australian will go within ten miles of Fosters beer.

If you want a real Aussie beer, try a Carlton Draught or a Coopers sparkling ale.

 

 

I'm not really a beer drinker, more of a hard alcohol kind of guy, but Coopers is a damn fine cold one to throw back.

I have a Samsung S5 Mini International phone that I purchased outright, so no extra AT&T crap on my phone, just some of the unremovable Google apps.  I stuffed them in a file to hide them and shut them down for updates and all works well.  Only thing that slows my processor down lately is fucking Facebook.  I love the phone, 2 years old and the battery life is still great.  I will now be buying a back up battery having said that out loud lol.

 

And like has been previously mentioned by others, it's all done for a grandfathered kick ass unlimited plan.  Yes, I know if I fully unlocked my phone I could get rid of the Google apps too, but my luck rolls that I'd end up with a brick for trying.
