You removed the remote start box, did you remove the pats bypass module as well?.

I suggest this

Ok I have done a lot digging around and found out the pats control module is for sure bad, it is full of rust and corrosion. Does anyone know if I can just put a used one in or does it have to be programmed to meet my key, transmitter and ECM? And thanks everyone for the replies.btw why isn't there a cheap way to bypass this dang pats system

I'm pretty sure it would have to be specifically for your key.

That's what I was thinking. I'm gonna check into a tuner or a chip to disable the pats system, I just don't want to spend that much.

Wow that's a bummer, rust and corrosion in the pats module?

You possibly got a flood claim car.
I have heard horror stories of cars that were totaled due to a flood, then cleaned out and resold at auction or by shady dealers who pass it off as a clean title. I would do some vin research on the car to see if it has a salvage claim on it. You may be looking at other issues down the road .

Is possible top was down for a long time or top was bad, all the corrosion is inside the car, everything under the hood and trunk area are fine

Ya probly had the top left down a few to many times over night or while it rained.

I have a convertible saab that I had to replace some electronic stuff in due to the top being left down before I bought it. It sucks saab crap is expensive .
