If your car has SKIM, you have one of three choices.

If you already have two keys, there is a way to program a third yourself. Just get the right transponder blank, have it cut and then follow the directions.

If you only have one key there are two choices left. First, 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. But other than that, it will work fine. The cost is about $68 here where I live.

The other choice is to get a locksmith or the Chrysler dealer to program your SKIM unit to except a second key. This is the best choice for those with only one key since you can then program additional keys yourself. The locksmith will have to get the four digit code to your SKIM unit either from Chrysler or by hacking the SKIM EPROM which is relatively easy if you have the locksmith program. Where I live, this cost about $110 from a local locksmith.

I have 2006 and unfortunately it had but ONE key so I was stuck going to the dealer to get it programmed

The GOOD thing for me was that the key TO program can be had from a number of eBay delers; all the ones *I* got were fine. My 2006 FOB black head key has all the panic buttons and lock and open. I also bught a few GREY no button keys and programmed them (MYSELF) as spares. JUST IN CASE., The dealer charged me quite a bit for doing key #2 INITIIALLY but the good thing is after that YOU can progarm any number of keys BY YOURSELF

I hope this helps...adn remember this infor is for at LEAST a 2006!

Those won't work if the alarm is on...it will cut your starter off...meaning once you've locked the doors, car is armed.
