Default 2005 PATS Question

I have been told that the 2005 Ranger does not use the PATS system. Is this true? The reason I ask is I just purchased a remote start / alarm and was looking to see if I needed to purchase the bypass module.

the easyiest way that I found to check is to take the key to the local wal-mart, and have them put the key in their little machine they have to see if there is a chip in it.

2005 does not have PATS

I believe they stoped putting them in trucks in 2001 or 2002
