Default Help me choose correct key fob

Hello everyone. I am interested in buying my wife a new key fob for her 03 cruiser. We bought it some months ago and only have a key to operate it. I have seen some posts regarding this issue, however would appreciate you all to point me in the right direction the first time.

A listing on ebay or other websites would be helpful.

Thanks

To avoid going to the dealer. You might opp to go to a pic and pull and find a chrysler that has at least one fob. PT preferred because I know where the module is located under the upper dash cover above the window switch. Some guys on here have found that if you get that module and fob from the same car it will work on your cruiser. Just make sure you stay 05 and back. Fob part of key after that. You do have power lock button correct?

To my knowledge you need one to program another. Don't know if anybody has plug and play that you can buy. But Just in the last month it has come to light that you can swap the box and fob or fobs from another junked pt or chrysler of those years. Just plug it in and the fobs you got with it will work on yours. Otherwise you have to visit a dealer. To the best of my knowledge.

I have not done this but I have heard others doing this.

I have heard that you can go to some place like Walmart that can "clone" your one existing key. Since the new cloned key will seem like the same original key to your PT, you cannot use it to program more keys.

Maybe others on this forum can give more details on cloning an existing key.

Does an cloned key have the ability to unlock, lock the doors, turn on the panic button or is that where an FOB is required. I am thinking of getting an extra key myself.

I'm far from an expert, but the FOB is what talks to the RKEM (Remote keyless entry module) and does the unlock & alarm, etc.
The key has the chip in it that has to satisfy the security module above steering wheel, or else the key (if cut correctly) will turn in the ignition, start the car, but car will shut off quickly if chip in key isn't recognized.

This is the fob you need !The key does all the things you do now. If you have a chipped key. Gray keys are chipped. You need to clone or get one programed to the PT. Some dealers don't want to program a key you bought elsewhere. If you get the dealer programmed key You can make more on your own. A clone you can't

THIS ^^^^
Just did this for the 2005 Dream Cruiser.
The only difference in my 2005 key fob is, the convertible has an additional button for the convertible hatch.
A regular body Cruiser does not need this; as unlocking the doors unlocks the rear hatch.
