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.

Trouble Code: P1686 4.7L
No SKIM Bus Messages Received
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
PCM details.
Trouble Code Conditions:
Engine started; and the PCM did not detect any MIC (I/P Cluster) messages over the Data Bus circuit for 20 seconds.
Possible Causes:
  • Data Bus circuit from MIC to the PCM is damaged or it is open
  • Instrument Cluster is damaged or has failed
  • PCM unable to communicate with the Instrument Cluster
  • PCM has failed
this means, the PCM can not talk to the I/P cluster puter.
comm fail.
even wilder guess is PCM talks to KEY via cluster so if cluster dead
so be key.
bad fuses ?

No SKIM BUS Message received.
possible causes:
1. Invalid SKIM key.
2.wiring harness intermittent defect.
3.PCM DEF INTERNAL PCI BUS OPEN.
4.PCM PCI BUS CIRCUIT OPEN.
The first thing I would do is check the wiring harness unplug and check for loose pins then reconnect. Hope this helps.

When a PCM (JTEC) and the SKIM are replaced
at the same time, perform the following steps in
order:
(1) Program the new PCM (JTEC).
(2) Program the new SKIM.
(3) Replace all ignition keys and program them to
the new SKIM.
PROGRAMMING THE PCM (JTEC)
The SKIS Secret Key is an ID code that is unique
to each SKIM. This code is programmed and stored
in the SKIM, the PCM, and the ignition key transponder
chip(s). When replacing the PCM, it is necessary
to program the secret key into the new PCM
using the DRBIIIt scan tool. Perform the following
steps to program the secret key into the PCM.
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PCM REPLACED (GAS ENGINE).
(4) Enter secured access mode by entering the
vehicle four-digit PIN.
(5) Select ENTER to update PCM VIN.
NOTE: If three attempts are made to enter secured
access mode using an incorrect PIN, secured
access mode will be locked out for one hour. To
exit this lockout mode, turn the ignition switch to
the ON position for one hour, then enter the correct
PIN. (Ensure all accessories are turned off. Also
monitor the battery state and connect a battery
charger if necessary).
(6) Press ENTER to transfer the secret key (the
SKIM will send the secret key to the PCM).

(7) Press PAGE BACK to get to the Select System
menu and select ENGINE, MISCELLANEOUS, and
SRI MEMORY CHECK.
(8) The DRBIIIt will ask, “Is odometer reading
between XX and XX?” Select the YES or NO button
on the DRBIIIt. If NO is selected, the DRBIIIt will
read, “Enter Odometer Reading (From I.P. odometer)”.
Enter the odometer reading from the instrument
cluster and press ENTER.
PROGRAMMING THE SKIM
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PCM REPLACED (GAS ENGINE).
(4) Program the vehicle four-digit PIN into SKIM.
(5) Select COUNTRY CODE and enter the correct
country.
NOTE: Be sure to enter the correct country code. If
the incorrect country code is programmed into
SKIM, it cannot be changed and the SKIM must be
replaced.
(6) Select YES to update VIN (the SKIM will learn
the VIN from the PCM).
(7) Press ENTER to transfer the secret key (the
PCM will send the secret key to the SKIM).
(8) Program ignition keys to the SKIM.
NOTE: If the PCM and the SKIM are replaced at the
same time, all vehicle ignition keys will need to be
replaced and programmed to the new SKIM.
PROGRAMMING IGNITION KEYS TO THE SKIM
(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position
(transmission in Park/Neutral).
(2) Use the DRBIIIt and select THEFT ALARM,
SKIM, then MISCELLANEOUS.
(3) Select PROGRAM IGNITION KEY’S.
(4) Enter secured access mode by entering the
vehicle four-digit PIN.
NOTE: A maximum of eight keys can be learned to
each SKIM. Once a key is learned to a SKIM it (the
key) cannot be transferred to another vehicle.
(5) Obtain ignition keys to be programmed from
the customer (8 keys maximum).
(6) Using the DRBIIIt, erase all ignition keys by
selecting MISCELLANEOUS, and ERASE ALL CURRENT
IGN. KEYS.
(7) Program all of the ignition keys.
If ignition key programming is unsuccessful, the
DRBIIIt will display one of the following messages:
² Programming Not Attempted - The DRBIIIt
attempts to read the programmed key status and
there are no keys programmed into SKIM memory.
² Programming Key Failed (Possible Used
Key From Wrong Vehicle) - SKIM is unable to program
an ignition key transponder due to one of the
following:
² The ignition key transponder is faulty.
² The ignition key transponder is or has been
already programmed to another vehicle.
² 8 Keys Already Learned, Programming Not
Done - The SKIM transponder ID memory is full.
² Learned Key In Ignition - The ID for the ignition
key transponder currently in the ignition lock
cylinder is already programmed in SKIM memory.
end quote.

I have two codes coming up p.0051 and p 1685 i had to replace the fuel pump and now my radio can be tuned in but no sound can anyone help?


under the back seat is the amplifier and i suspect that you disturbed a multiplug when the pump was changed
P1685 The SKIM (Smart Key Immobilizer Module) has received an invalid key

P0051 HO2S Heated Oxygen Sensor -Control Circuit Low (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
check the sensor with a multimeter is the sensible option here before you replace it in case its a dirty or corroded multiplug connection

I have a 99 dodge intrepid and it runs rough and stalls out. how do you find out the codes for what is wrong with it?


On my 98' Intrepid I turn the key to "ON position" Three times.( on-off-on-off-on-off-on). Don't start it. It will show the trouble codes in the odometer space. To reset the codes just undo the Neg. battery cable for 30 mins..

99 intrepid hard to start and or cutts out, what is my solution


n most 90's and up Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, you can try to pull codes from the car's computer as long as you still have a charged battery. Put your key in the ignition, and turn it forward, but not far enough to engage the starter. Turn the key back to the Off position, then forward, back and forward again. In early 90s vehicles, the Check Engine light is going to flash a number of times. Often, code 55 means it is completed.
In mid and late 90s vehicles, you will often get a 4 digit code that may help you diagnose problems starting, mostly checking the eletrical, ignition and sensor systems.

Codes


p0513 invalid skim key
do you have an aftermarket alarm that is "remote start" compatible? if so, the skim is reading that the car is starting without a key, but the alarm module is allowing it to start, bypassing the skim module.


p0517 High battery temp sensor.
Either the battery is gettign to hot and/or it has a bad sensor.
