Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
What most likely is wrong is that the computer you have installed still has the VIN number stored in it from another vehicle, thus when you go to start it it doesn't see the information it is looking for and the "SKIM" or Sentry Key Immobilizer Module won't let the vehicle run. The fix is to have the computer reprogrammed by a dealer or by another shop that has this capability. Be aware that there is the possibility that the computer you have installed [if it is a used one from a similar vehicle] may still not work in your vehicle as some just aren't compatable with each other due to other programming and design issues. If it was a remanufactured computer you installed then most of them come without being programmed and also have to be reprogrammed before they will work. Good luck, hope this helps out a bit.
