Customer Question
I have a 2011 Dodge...
I have a 2011 Dodge caliper which was broken into and the entire ignition system was ripped out so I had to change out the module and got a new key but it still won't crank and won't start the anti-theft light is on and has a bolt with parentheses around it on the dash. They're saying I need to reset my computer or reprogram it. But I'm wondering if there is a cheaper fix or solution or bypass even

Yes, the dealership is correct.

Any module replacement needs to be programmed AND linked by a dealer scantool.

Generally a laptop these days.

Sorry to hear of your breakin and damage.

How much does it cost and is it possible to do myself
Dodge Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok, if you have done all the parts replacement, and it is only a laptop job now, I would say the dealer would want 1 hour labour.

They should be able to quote this to you over the phone.

Unless you have the manufacturer program on your laptop, I doubt you can do this yourself.
