Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!
If you damaged the SKIM module which is the ring around the key cylinder then you will need to replace it and have it programmed to start your vehicle.. There is no bypass for the the security..
I hope this helps,
If the SKIM module is damaged, then it will need to be replaced before the engine will start.. You likely see a red light on in dash which is the security.. There is no way to bypass it.

And you can't get a used SKIM from the junkyard because once programmed they are married to the PCM and can't be reprogrammed.. You will need to get a new SKIM and program it with a 4 digits PIN we dealerships have..
If there was a way to bypass it I would tell you...

Yes that black ring is part of the SKIM.. It has wires in it and detects the key when inserted... Once you replace the SKIM and program it you will be in good shape..
