Default Pats / Non pats keys 2005 Edge

Hi guys,
Newbie here. 1st of all, I promisse to put some more info of myself as soon as I have a little more time.
For right now, I need to know if somebody has experieced the same thing I have.
I bought my 2nd ranger little more than a month ago and it only came with 1 pats key. Not wanting to spend the money for a new pat key right away I went to a regular locksmith just to have a spare key in my wallet in case I lock my other set inside of the car. Just for the fun of it I tried to turn on the car with the non pats key and it worked. Now, what gives? I was so relying on this extra anti-theft security plus and now it seems that its non existent in my car. Ps: I really really do have the pats key...
I appreciate any elaboration on the matter!
The Jelly man.

Ford "thrifted" PATS for the 2005 model year, then it returned on V6 models for 2006 and then on all Rangers from 2007 on. They must have received some complaints.

Your truck has a key that looks like a PATS key and there is a Theft light in the cluster but your 2005 does not have PATS.
