Need to get a new transponder key and reset the PATS to accept a new master. Or take it to the dealership and let them reencode a new master key. There is no real cheap solution.

how do you reset The PATS

I just ran into this with an F150 that the processor got shorted and had to be replaced, the dealer is the only place that can do this, unless you have a really smart locksmith that has all the equipment to do this, they are few and far between. So your kinda stuck.

i mean is it a do it yourself thing or is it difficult

not what i wanted to hear but thank you.

Definitely not a DIY

I got lucky with mine it was a fleet truck and has no chip in the key. So it is possible to get it changed back and get a regular key. Even in my trucks or cars with chip keys I have one regular key for a spare to open doors. I would look into removing the transponder unit if possible way cheaper in the long run, if you dont mind that loss of security key.
