Good afternoon 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.

If the red light is flashing then you have an issue with either the key or the SKIM module.. Since you have a new key then what codes are in the SKIM module?

Talk soon,

No codes that I can tell

You will need a scantool to retrieve the codes from the SKIM module.. Post the codes when you have them..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No codes

Do you have a scantool or code reader? If the red light is on then there are codes in the SKIM module.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The tree are no codes

Scan tool shows no codes

If your scantool will communicate with the SKIM then what does it show for Ok to Start?
