Well, you have to tell the computer (ECU) that PATS is not installed. So only can be done through a tune. Only need a single item needs be changed.
Assuming thats the problem. I recall mine wouldn't start when I was working to get new keys. But that could depend on the firmware, which I believe changed in 98/99 ECU's.
