Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.*****I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and other repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there, and to be honest with today's electronics a scantool may very well be needed to retrieve the codes or to monitor data to see what's going on*****
What's wrong with the ignition key cylinder now besides not having a key?
OOhh ok I understand.. Ok the only way to start the vehicle would be to have a gray headed key held near the ignition switch so the SKIM module picks it up and then you would just need to turn the ignition. But in your case even if you could turn the ignition then you still wouldn't be able to start it because you need a programmed key. To save you a tow bill I would get the correct key cylinder and drill that one out and replace it with the correct one from the dealership and then just call a mobile locksmith to program you new gray headed key..
If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!Have a great day,Brad
Also feel free to request me in the future for all your Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep needs..Have a great day,Brad
Can I get your VIN to see if you have SKIM keys or not? If you don't then you can bypass it so it will start, but if you have programmed keys there is no way to start it without a programmed key.
