Default PATS or PCM problem

so about a month ago i was having what i thought was a PATS problem. i ended up taking it to the dealer to get it repaired. they told me it was a blown fuse which they replaced. this morning i had the same symptoms as before, however all fuses are intact.

Basically whats happening is the Theft light is blinking the 1:6 PATS code. i tried both keys, and my SCT flash controller can't even read the DTCs from the OBDII port. I followed the procedure to read the DTCs off the dash and got 5284, D262, D043. I read a PDF of the ford service manual on PATS and it indicated that it may be a PCM problem and not the PATS. any feed back would be appreciated
