HI,

Ok, in the engine compartment fuse box is the IOD fuse, it is fuse #15(50 amp). Remove it for at least 1 full minute. Then reinstall and crank engine. This resets the SKIM system. See attached for fuse location

Hello, I tried removing the F15 50 amp fuse for one minute and replacing it. I still have the same problem. This did not fix the problem
Expert:  Eric replied 10 months ago.

HI,

Ok, that is the only reset procedure. This means that there is a hard failure in the SKIM - control module, antenna ring or key- and will require diagnostics with a scan tool
