How do i fix a skim key problem with a 99 intrepid?

SKIM is short for sentry key immobilizer module. It uses a proximity sensor and a special "sentry" key to keep people from stealing your car. They are notoriously unreliable, and can only be programmed by a dealer or authorized mechanic (TRANSLATION: expensive test equipment required). They fail in strange ways, and you can't use a "copied" generic key. If your sentry key or sensor has failed, a dealership can get you going again quickly. If there is a communication problem or other strangeness happening, it could take a few hours for the tech to sort out. 25315837-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-3-0.gif 25315837-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-3-1.jpg

1999 jeep showing code p1686

P1686 is a SKIM (Sentry Key Immobilizer Module) no signal code. The keys have tiny chips in them that have to match the SKIM module for that vehicle, if they dont match then the engine will stop running after a few seconds. This is to keep theives from making a key and driving away with you vehicle.
First of all, do you have 2 keys? If so try the other one, if it works, then the other sentry key (the one that didn't work before) has bit the dust. If both do not work and both seem to have same symptoms, then it is quite possibly the module under the sterering wheel cover attached to back of ignition switch which reads the sentry key and if it gets signal from sentry key, then it sends a signal to pcm allowing start up to complete with no shutdown. If this unit is bad, unfortunuately just replacing it is no help, because after replacement a DEALER must then program both the unit and your keys. Make sure you give the dealer both keys, as both have to be reprogrammed to the new unit, if only one is done, the other will not work.

When jump starting my 99 jeep GC I accidentally hit the negative post with a pos cable (hot) large spark and subsequently it would crank but not start. Sentry key light came on steady as did check engine....

Not sure, but if Sentry Light stay on, by shorting it, the anti-theft system stay on ! Unplug the battery for 30min's reconnect it, and try it again, alot of chance that the anti-theft system will reprogram and will function normally ! You can go to a Local Dealer with your Jeep they will reprogram the system and everything will be fine ! For the Check Engine, need a OBD2 Code Scanner or a Garage/Dealer Scanner to know the Code Stored in the PCM and it will tell if PCM is okay too !
