Default 2002 Ford Ranger PATS issue

I have 2002 Frod Ranger 3.0 with a PATS issue. I lost on of the keys last year and then the vehicle PATS system kicked in and it would not start. Contacted locksmith and tried to reprogram new keys but the PCM would not recognize them. I bought a flashed PCM with new keys and installed them but when I try the new keys after inserting them for 3 secs as instructed the light still flashes. Not sure where to go next any suggestions.

The tranciever ring in the steering column (the part that reads the key) sometimes go bad. However the flashes from the theft light should be in a pattern and that pattern is a code to tell you what the issue is.

Is it a manual or automatic?

Also, are your gauges not working? Like the odometer, temp, tech, and speedo?
