Customer Question

I just replaced a heater core on 2012 Chrysler 200. After completion the car started and ran 1-2 seconds then shut off. Security light is flashing, has dtc p0513, invalid key detected. Is it possible I damaged the WCM? If I left something disconnected, shouldn't I have more dtc's?

Disconnect both battery cables tie together after a minute cycle key all positions then key off another minute reattach cables to battery, start car.

Well unfortunately we have proceeded with replacing the WCM. Waiting on a locksmith to come and cut keys and program. Is it too late to put old WCM in car and try the steps you told me?
Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 1 year ago.

No please do it

We already had a guy come and program WCM and 2 keys. Car runs fine. Thank you greatly. I wish I had asked you before all this! Too late to go back now
