Can you get the Skim module and the Keys from the other Pt Cruiser? This will help not having to go to the dealer to have it reprogrammed.

And key cylinder.

You will have to have your door locks rekeyed if you need to unlock using the new key.

I was thinking the member could just tape the key next to the key cylinder if the budget doesn't allow for rekeying the door locks as JoeX posted.

Rather than switching all of those components, I would opt to have the replacement PCM programmed with my correct PT VIN. There are sometimes software updates that need to be applied to your vehicle. If the PCM has another vehicles VIN, necessary updates may not be applied to your vehicle.
