I called Dodge in Renton and they said they aren't allowed to give code out but I do not understand why they are not allowed to give the code to the owner of the car, I understand proof of ownership might be required. I am told the code comes with the new car when a person buys it.
Well maybe somebody here can help.
Thanks

I assume you don't have two working keys. There is a tool that can retrieve the pin code and also program the key.

Yes only one key but I bought a key and ACE cut it for FREE, yeah ACE.
It will start the car but because it is not programmed the engine dies quickly.
I have a SBB key programmer and it has saved me a lot of money programming.
I am registered with NASTF National Automotive Service Task Force.
I'm just exhausting my options before they run out.

What's the tool you refer to? There are many.

Thanks

yes the paper work with new car will have the code.
The dealership will not give out code 1) liability, would want tittle. 2) a chance to make a buck or two.

Professional locksmiths have the ability to program and often can get code from chrysler, Ca Ching$$$.

Oh how I miss 99cent keys at walmart...

I have an SBB pro and it has worked great for a lot of cars so far but this Dodge is not letting me in but I will try to clone.
Thanks for the info I will keep updating.

Hey Kev2 after paying a locksmith $160 for one key and programming, $160 was mid range for one key. I thought to myself there must be a better way and bought the SBB which paid for itself the second key I programmed.
It is all about the $$$$$$$ and a lot of people are getting the answer to ( What would you be if you were attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis?)
Dealers and smiths do it all the time.

Thanks

Anyone remember being asked to make all this BS standard?
SKIM, ABS, TC, Skid Control, 'on star' even if not turned on, radio codes, TPMS, this will not end well. Johnny Cab is the future.

Auto joe; have you actually used the Obdstar x100?
I see listings for XTOOL x100 along with the Obdstar x100.
Thanks

Very astute comment.

I use two different methods now. One is j2534, the other is pure butchery.

I prefer the j protocols. Less intrusive.

Will be going ADAS courses soon. Will be nice to get a look at what I will have to work on in the next few years. After that, maybe the beginning of hydrogen cells as mandatory. That would better a better "mandatory" advancement than an AI car!
