If the PATS is activated it will either blink rapidly or glow steadily. (http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-pats.234975/). You may want to get it up to any auto parts store and have them do their free check on the charging system. If the battery is bad or has a dead cell it may not be enough to crank the starter even if lights come on. You could also take a look at the starter relay.
