Default Reset Security Settings

How do you reset security settings in a 2003 Turbo? Radio is dead due to using my Jeep key in my Cruiser. Thanks in advance.

Is there Jeep key longer? Does the radio come on if you press the PT key father into the ignition?

The anti-theft system (SKIM) in an American-market 2003 PT doesn't usually affect the stereo. Check out what Rob is saying. If an American PT, the more likely issue is ignition switch linkage as Rob is indicating. If the SKIM is staying activated, the red SKIM light will stay on even when using the correct sentry key.

If you have a European PT, then it may indeed impact the stereo and I don't know the answer to your question.
