P1685 Skim Invalid Key.

The Sentry Key Immobilizer Module contains a Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver and a microprocessor. The SKIM transmits RF signals to, and receives RF signals from the Sentry Key transponder through a tuned antenna ring integral to the SKIM housing. When the ignition switch is turned to the On position, the SKIM transmits an RF signal to the transponder in the ignition key. The SKIM then waits for an RF signal response from the transponder. If the response received identifies the key as valid, the SKIM sends a valid key message to the PCM over the PCI data bus. If the response received identifies the key as invalid, or if no response is received from the key transponder, the SKIM sends an invalid key message to the PCM. The PCM will enable or disable engine operation based upon the status of the SKIM messages.

2000 dodge neon misses all the time no power or acceleration


The spark plug wires might be bad, Are the coil packs a wires together in one? With the engine off, loosen each plug wire so as to when you start it you can not have to battle with it First do this with dry floor, rubber sole shoos and a pare of rubber or vinyl gloves. As its running pull 1 plug wire off at a time. When you get to a plug that doesn't change the sound of the motor you've found your miss. Did the CK engine light come on?

Ck engine light came on and car started running a little rough, does this sound like a coil pack ? How would I check it


i would start easy, and go with a plug change, a code telling you about missfire is a good indication that a plug or plug wire has gone bad. pull that plug and check for oil on the plug, and carbon, more then likely your plug is bad. but dont just change that one plug you should do them all. i think if i remember the plugs are a pain to get to, but you can do it, if your not used to working on cars just pull one plug at a time, so you don't screw up the firing order, get an extention for your ratchet as well a swivel end, for those weird bends and angels. "one plug at a time i would also change those wires,"one wire at a time" also make sure you have pulled the black ground wire off your battery, not only is this safe but it will also reset your cars computer and the check engine light will be off, do another code check after you have finished replacing the plugs and wires. if no engine lights are on, turn your key three times to the start possition without actually starting the car do this three times and then watch as codes are shown to you. "this does not apply to all cars", if this dont apply to your car go to auto zone and get the free key to plug into the box right under your dashboard, "you could also make one with a paper clip". then see codes, if no codes are shown your good to go, im sure it's a bad plug and wire problem. how does she run now? i mean is she giving you a hard time starting? or is she running rough? start the car pop the hood and listen to the engine while idle, should be smooth unless a plug has gone bad, if one has you will here a drop in idle, or smooth engine idle. you will actually see the engine **** a bit when the idle has dropped, or changed, i swear this sounds like you need a plug change, i had one of these cars i loved it,

Change engine oil light is on i tried turning key to acc pump gas three times turned key off but light still comes back on


that light is a maintenance reminder light. Check with who ever changes your oil, and have them reset it.

Usually the turn key/pump 3 times works for the check engine light. Smart to try that though.

2000 Neon started missing but when I drive it fast it runs better, and the check engine light is on. Also, I changed the spark plugs but 1 spark plug has oil on it. What do you think it is?


you need to check the check engine light first. then the miss can be from the oil on the spark plug i would replace that spark plug with oil on it and replace the valve cover gaskets this will prevent the problem from happening again

My 2000 plymouth neon cuts off on me after i


If your check engine light is coming on, then there should be a trouble code stored in your computer to tell you what area to look in for problem. Run into an autozone, or Pep Boys & get a free scan and see what they say comes up for codes & then if not obvious what the problem is, get back to us & we'll help you out.

Starts good but bogs out in gear


Tuned-up lately, like new plugs & wires? Check EGR Valve, and also cycle key to retrieve any trouble codes that may be stored that will point you /us in right direction, and let us know what came up. Turn key to on, off,on,off,on, and leave in on position & count flashes of "check engine" light. goes like this: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more is code 22. 3 flashes,pause 4 more, is code 34........write them down & get back.

2000 Dodge Intrepid Wont Start


first of all, check your code to see what the car computer shows. To do that , insert the key in the ignition and switch it on three time within 2 seconds and the third time live the key in the on position. All the instrument panel lights will lite and the oddometer will display the fault code that may br the cause for your car not starting. goood luck.
