    Replacing SKIM module in Grand Cherokee 2001 after attempted theft. Lock and housing and SKIM were smashed to bits. Have acquired another SKIM (used) and written the existing keys into the SKIM (via Eeprom). Wondering how the new skim is learned by the PCM.

Obviously the dealer did not correctly complete the repair, therefore should be more involved in current problem. If your vehicle had any anti-theft device installed, be aware that many have delayed shut down features built in. I'd look there first, providing yo did not have any similar problem pryor to the theft.
Good luck!!

I replaced the battery on a 2001 Jeep grand Cherokee and security is on so it wont start how do I reset computer to get it to start

Directly from the owners manual...
1.- Enter your car wth your ignition key and your theft remote, and press the Lock button on your remote five times in 10 seconds.
2.- Insert your key into the Jeep's ignition cylinder, and then turn the key to the "Run" position. Wait for the car's automatic chiming sound to stop before proceeding.
3.- Press and hold the Unlock button on your remote for around five seconds, and then press and hold the Panic button at the same time.
4.- Hold both buttons together for one second and then release. Wait for the car's chimes to sound again and then press and release the Lock and Unlock buttons on your remote.
5.- Press and release just the Unlock button on the remote next and wait for a chime again to indicate successful programming. You can then remove your ignition key to complete the resetting process.

Hope this helps; keep us updated.
