Ford PAT System

I have a 98 Ford Explorer and the Theft light has now started to blink quickly apon ignition. I only have one key to this vehicle and it will not start. It started fine always but drove to work and will not start no more.

I was wondering if any Techs are out there that would know what would probably fail most: key failure or Transceiver failure? I get a 1260 Code on my Snap on 2500 scanner.

If its the Transceiver do new ones need programing? I being led that they don’t for the Key is the communication device and Transceiver just the antenna device.
thanks,
