    I believe PATS is the onboard security system that allows the car to turn on only when a key with the correct code for the cars computer system is inserted into the ignition system. IE The system that is supposed to prevent people from stealing your car when they don't have a coded key that matches the cars code.

    The actual acronym for it i'm not sure of, probably something like Passive Anti Theft System or something...
