It is part of the main computer processor and not serviceable, if it has locked you out totally even after running the reset procedure then a dealer will have to go in and reset the system and possibly do a computer reflash.

Understand that there is also a simple snap module which allows current to flow to starter if key is recognized? Where is that located?

That was used back in the late 80's and early 90's but most everything from 96 on has it based in the main computer. So I never heard of a snap module in anything after 96. It's a Ford if the starter fails to kick over with the key just jump the starter relays small post to positive, if the starter is good that will turn it over.
