Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

Are you saying that your vehicle is at a dealership and they can't program your new key you got from them?

their trying still , even going as far to tell me that since they cut key for my car i'm still responsible for cost of key even if it doesn't program.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago

Are they able to communicate with the SKIM module and do you have at least 1 key that will start it fine?

I have one key that will start it but doesn't open locks , therefore in order for me not hear alarm go off all the time i can never lock doors, hence the reason i went and bought new key.
From all the forums i read looks like Dodge installed a faulty SKIM Module from manufacturing line , alot of problems with people and this make and model and year.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago

I have a 2004 at my dealership that I just ordered a new SKIM module for because the Independant shop down the road couldn't program new key.. So I'm sure the dealership is using a WITech scantool and if so then I would suggest replacing the SKIM module which is mounted around the key cylinder to correct your issues...

I hope this helps,

Brad

Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago

To give you an exact part number and price I will need the last 8 of your VIN to get that for you.
