Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I am not sure. The dealer just told my daughter that is what was needed. If that is part of it then, yes
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
There is no response, no clicking or anything when I turn the key. The lights all work.
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 3 years ago
HI,
I'm sorry but even if you were to replace the SKIM module, it would need to be programmed with a scantool before it would start the vehicle. Unless you have a scantool it sounds like you will need to let a shop handle this repair for you..
Let me know,
Brad

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
