NOTE: The model years and vehicles above must be equipped (optional) with Sentry Key Theft Deterrent System (sales code GXX) for this bulletin to apply.
ALL LISTED VEHICLES EXCEPT SEBRING COUPE/STRATUS COUPE (ST), CROSSFIRE, AND SPRINTER.
When a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is replaced on vehicles equipped with the Sentry Key"' Theft Deterrent System, it must be initialized to properly function with the anti-theft module. This is accomplished at a Chrysler Group Dealer by using the DRBIII or StarSCAN Scan Tool to enter a PIN number.
When the PIN number is not available from the vehicle owner or a Chrysler Group Scan Tool(s) is not available this can be accomplished by writing the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the PCM using an after-market scan tool with a "VIN Write Function". More information is available from the scan tool manufacturer or the Equipment & Tool Institute.
NOTE: After performing this procedure with an after-market scan tool on vehicles equipped with Chrysler Group's Next Generation Controller (NGC), Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) "PO633 - SKIM SECRET KEY DATA NOT STORED IN PCM" will be set. This DTC will not affect vehicle or system performance and cannot be erased.
SEBRING COUPF/STRATUS COUPE (ST)
Initializing the PCM on these vehicles requires the use of a DaimlerChrysler scan tool (DRBIII), J1962 MMC Cable, and ST22 PCMCIA Diagnostic Card. This equipment is available for lease from DaimlerChrysler for short periods of time. To lease the DRBIII call 1-800-801-5420. A credit card deposit will be required.
CROSSFIRE AND SPRINTER.
Initializing the PCM on these vehicles requires the use of a DaimlerChrysler scan tool (DRBIII), Multiplexer cable box, and the CH9043 Crossfire or CH9087 Sprinter PCMCIA card. This equipment is available for lease from DaimlerChrysler for short periods of time. To lease the DRBIII call 1-800-801-5420. A credit card deposit will be required.
The DRBIII will be shipped within 24 hours to your location by an overnight delivery service. When the DRBIII is returned, your credit card will be charged the lease price. PCM INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE: See the pdf version of 08-015-05 for instructions.
