Also went through this with my Stratus on the stereo aux input install.
I think the hour thing comes from a manual somewhere. Here's link:

http://www.adusa.us/data/documents/4...p-P.93-178.pdf

I've experimented with my own SKIM in both PT's. And during that, I did experience the SKIM locking out the starter. There was no hour wait but I had other things disconnected as well. The hour wait is what the literature says for the reset. Along with everything else, I guess your mileage may vary.

Maybe the hour is for dealer billing lol.

You can over run the immboliser by putting in a sequence from which you can obtain from your local Locksmith or dealer as long as you take your V5 in a proof of identity!
