did you check the fuse for obdII data connector ?

if we have power on it and it is not powering up scanner or scanner will not establish communication then most of the time the PCM, (car computer) is the issue ,I have replaced serval over the years ,

now the system has several components , but do make another key we need pcm communication ,I use allcomputerresoursec.com a company where u can send pcm and they rebuild it for you

How do I get the car out of auto safety mode after I have lost your key an locksmith cannot use his obd to connect because of the safety mode?????
Chrysler Mechanic: Shawn Few ,
 replied 3 months ago

if he can not communicate with pcm , then pcm issue

if the key is failing to program ,then immobilizer/skim module ,he needs drbIII Chrysler scanner to do that

PROGRAMMING THE IGNITION KEYS TO THE SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER MODULE
1. Turn the ignition on (transmission in park/ neutral).
2. Use the DRBIII(R) and select THEFT ALARM, SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
3. Select PROGRAM IGNITION KEYS.
4. Enter secured access mode by entering the vehicle four-digit PIN.

NOTE: A maximum of eight keys can be learned to each SKIM AT ONE TIME. Once a key is learned to a SKIM it (the key) cannot be transferred to another vehicle.

If ignition key programming is unsuccessful, the DRBIII(R) will display one of the following messages:

Programming Not Attempted - The DRBIII(R) attempts to read the programmed key status and there are no keys programmed in the SKIM memory

Programming Key Failed - (Possible Used Key From Wrong Vehicle) - SKIM is unable to program key due to one of the following:
- faulty ignition key transponder
- ignition key is programmed to another vehicle. 8 Keys Already Learned, Programming Not Done - SKIM transponder ID memory is full.

1. Obtain ignition keys to be programmed from customer (8 keys maximum)
2. Using the DRBIII(R), erase all ignition keys by selecting MISCELLANEOUS and ERASE ALL CURRENT IGN. KEYS
3. Program all ignition keys.

Learned Key In Ignition - Ignition key transponder ID is currently programmed in SKIM memory.

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.
