Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!!

If your referring to the SKIM module which has the ring that goes around the key cylinder then no it can't be reprogrammed as it's married to the PCM.. You will need to get a new SKIM module to program it to your vehicle with a DRBIII before your vehicle will start and run..

I hope this helps,
