you can have a tune made up to disable it. i found out the hard way if you try to start it without the tune it will lock up the computer. make sure you have your cluster and computer swapped in when you go to install your tune.

From what i learned the pats system is located in the cluster and works in unison with the key and computer from the respected car. it can be disabled by requesting a tune with your computers 4 digit code. you can get one from vmp tuning its where i bought mine.
