Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Ok
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Nope invalid
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No code did not work .any other code I can use
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
That is the code that comes up based on the VIN number and serial number you sent. Is the VIN number from the vehicle that the radio came out of or the vehicle that it is going into?
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes the stereo and the Vin is of the same vehicle.
My battery died and I jumped my car and now the uconnect is asking for a anti theif code
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Try 2522 Let me know if that works.
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Nope still invalid code
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Ok then not sure why it won't work. Call Chrysler and see if they can figure it out. If you need the phone number, let me know and I will look it up.
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They told me they have to do the same thing match Vin and serial .
Input it in there system and it will generate a code.
But they wanted me to tow the car to the dealership
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Are u getting the code from the same place they do the dealer website?
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Yes I am getting the code from the same website that the dealer uses. I am confused though, Why would you have to tow the car to get a radio code? Why not just drive it there, are remove the radio and take it to them.
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The car died and I needed a jump so once I jumped the car it says it needs and anti thief code I can even turn on car.everything in the car comes on but once I try to push start I get the error I need a code from the uconnect screen
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Hmmm, something else is wrong then. That code is only to make the radio work. It will not keep the vehicle from starting. Did you have the battery tested?
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yea battery is good I charged last night and still had a juice this mourning.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is there a kill switch in these vehicles?
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
No there is not. The keys on these vehicles have a microchip in them. Do you have another key to try?
Chris
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yea car unlocks but once I try to start it shuts off .
The red light keeps blinking in the middle once I try to start along with u connect asking with code
Expert:  Chris replied 2 years ago.
Ok, then something is wrong with the key or the security module (SKIM module). Here is what you should do: Instead of towing the car to the dealer, call a mobile locksmith out to where the car is and ask him/her to check your keys and if needed program new ones. The locksmith can also test the module and tell you what to do next. At this point that is the best way to go.
