I have a 1998 ford explorer I am turning into a rockcrawler. I want to make it so it is a push button start and I need to disable the anti theft so I dont need a chipped key. I have read that if I ground the green and purple wire for the anti theft that that will disable it. Is this accurate and will I then be able to remove the steering column and say goodby to the key. This is going to have full hydraulic steering so I will be removing the whole steering column.
If not How do I shut off the pats system I have called the dealers in my area and they say they cant do it. and I have unplugged the anti theft box and then the motor wont start either.
I would have a tuner remove it. I can't find a remote start wire guide, but usually fords require a transponder that you wrap around the column. Check out directed's website, they should have several bypass kits available.
