How Do I Bypass The PATS Antitheft System On My 1997 Ford Expedition Or Reset It So It’ll Start With My Key

I misplaced my key and some idiot-ass locksmith kept sticking non-PATS keys into my ignition until the anti-theft system went into starter disable mode. Then I found my key, but now the anti-theft system isn’t recognizing my original PATS key. I heard that it can be easily reset to disengage the no-start feature so it takes my original key without my having to pay to get it done at a dealership. And I need to move the truck out of a no-parking zone ASAP before my landlord has it towed off, so I’d very deeply appreciate it if anyone can give me a speedy answer. Thanx in advance!
