The following procedure can be used as long as one functioning transmitter is available:

1.Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position (without starting the vehicle).

2.Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.

3.Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.

4.A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered.

5.Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.

6.After 30 seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, a chime will indicate that the RKE module has exited the programming mode.

if you need to reprogram the skreem (immobilizer)module, you will ne a compatable scan tool

this is directly from my software. -

the Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) must be initialized following a Sentry Key REmote Entry Module (SKREEM), sometimes referred to as the Wireless Control Module (WCM), replacement. SKIS initialization requires the use of a diagnostic scan tool. Initialization will also require that you have access to the unique four-digit PIN code that was assigned to the original SKREEM/WCM. The PIN code MUST be used to enter the Secured Access Mode in the SKREEM/WCM. This PIN number may be obtained from the vehicle owner, from the original vehicle invoice, or from the Chrysler Customer Center (Refer to 08 - Electrical/Electronic Control Modules - Standard Procedure).
