Customer Question

Thanks Matt,
What is this code number I have heard/read about? what does it have to be matched to?
Shouldn't the donor loom be suitable if it is also an 03.
Does the donor computer need to be reprogrammed with the new VIN?
I only have one key at the moment will this be ok for reprogramming?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Are you referring to the SKIM PIN? A replacement powertrain control module would need to be programmed to the vehicle's SKIM module once the PCM is installed. The SKIM PIN is obtained from Chrysler's database and has to be entered in the scan tool during the programming process to allow the data to be shared from the SKIM to PCM.
