Auxillary Warning Systems

All models have PATS (Passive Anti-Theft System) protecting the starter and engine management system, so that even if an identical key is used, without programming the car will not start.

Higher models have a built-in alarm, while some Scorpios will have ultra-sonic movement detectors with glass sensors, depending on specifications and factory optrions taken up at the time of ordering the vehicle.

The following are the Workshop Manuals sent to us by Ford to assist their Scorpio owners, here reproduced in PDF format.  Please respect Ford copyright.
