Let's say HYPOTHETICALLY I want to remove my key ring pats transceiver thingy and tape a key to it hiding under the dash and not tell anyone for fear of my truck getting stolen.

What do you do with that wire that goes to the green insert in the front of the ring, you know the thing that makes it ding constantly when disconnected alerting you that the key is in the ignition? 

Hypothetically of course, I wouldn't want anyone to think I was bypassing a safety feature LOL.

Actually I would like that feature to still work but the antenna houses it. Anyone come up with a solution?

The wire should only ding when it touches ground? IE the key is in the tumblers and makes up contact with ground?

You can use the pats key inside the halo and tape it up under the dash
then install a different ignition lock cylinder and key to do the actual power turn on and starter run operations
Stic-O on the explorer forum just put a sohc engine into a 90 something navajo, he did something like this with his pats system. We should ask him for a pic of his pats key/ halo setup. I have thought about doing it a time or two, like when we were going to put a Explorer GT40 v8 into an early bronco...keep the 1969 key and lock to turn the starter, hide the pats key and halo under the dash for added security. You take the pats key with you the injectors wont fire no matter how hard they hot wire the truck it wont run

I'll test the ground theory here shortly, I was wrapping mini harnesses in black tape this evening I think I'm creating a monster.

The disabler I'm putting in with the remote start uses one of the keys.
