Again someone got me. And $1200 in cash. I'm just devasted. And broke. I have one card with about $105 on it. Anyone know if I can use the CK-100 key programmer to program the fob and the key? It's 5.7 Durango limited 2006. I might as well buy something I can do everything since I keep getting stolen from. I hate people. I do have the correct Keyfob blank.

If I’m not mistaken it’s the vehicle that gets programmed to accept the key, not the key that gets programmed to start the vehicle. The latter just sounds like duplication of another authorized key, which in your case would be a no-no because some worthless thug has it; you want to “de-authorize” that stolen key from ever starting the vehicle again.

I had to get some extra keys added to my 2010 charger back in the day. Bought the car used and it only came with one key. I had the blanks and the local locksmith charged me $45 to program the two new keys into the car, cut the blanks for the door, trunk, and glove box, and remove the missing key from ever being able to unlock or start the vehicle (the missing key was an “eggshell” style while the blanks I brought him were the “police package” style without the integral remote). You might want to consider going the locksmith route.

Also, invest in a gun and a permit to carry.

Yep....the programming belongs to the SKREEM/WCM module. See below.

PROGRAMMING IGNITION KEYS TO THE SKREEM
Each ignition key transponder also has a unique ID code that is assigned at the time the key is manufactured.
When a key is programmed into the SKREEM/WCM, the transponder ID code is learned by the module and the
transponder acquires the unique Secret Key ID code from the SKREEM/WCM. To program ignition keys into the
SKREEM/WCM, follow the programming steps outlined in the diagnostic scan tool for “Program Ignition Keys or Key
FOBs” under “Miscellaneous Functions” for the “WCM/Wireless Control Module” menu item.
Note: A maximum of eight keys can be learned to each SKREEM. Once a key is learned to a SKREEM, that
key has acquired the Secret Key for that SKREEM and cannot be transferred to any other SKREEM or vehicle.
If ignition key programming is unsuccessful, the scan tool will display one of the following error messages:
² Programming Not Attempted - The scan tool attempts to read the programmed key status and there are
no keys programmed into SKREEM memory.
² Programming Key Failed (Possible Used Key From Wrong Vehicle) - SKREEM is unable to program an
ignition key transponder due to one of the following:
− The ignition key transponder is faulty.
− The ignition key transponder is or has been already programmed to another vehicle.
² 8 Keys Already Learned, Programming Not Done - The SKREEM 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 into SKREEM memory.

STANDARD PROCEDURE
PCM/SKREEM PROGRAMMING
Note: Before replacing the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), be certain to check the related component/
circuit integrity for failures not detected due to a double fault in the circuit. Most PCM driver/control circuit
failures are caused by internal component failures (i.e. relays and solenoids) and shorted circuits (i.e. pullups,
drivers, and switched circuits). These failures are difficult to detect when a double fault has occurred
and only one DTC has been set.
When a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the Sentry Key REmote Entry Module (SKREEM) on vehicles
equipped with the Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) are replaced at the same time, perform the following steps
in order:
1. Program the new PCM.
HB ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULES - SERVICE INFORMATION 8E - 191
2. Program the new SKREEM (also sometimes referred to as the Wireless Control Module or WCM).
3. Replace all ignition keys and program them into the new SKREEM/WCM.
PROGRAMMING THE PCM/SKREEM
The SKIS Secret Key is an ID code that is unique to each SKREEM/WCM. This code is programmed and stored in
the SKREEM/WCM, the PCM, and each ignition key transponder chip. When the PCM or SKREEM/WCM is
replaced, it is necessary to program the Secret Key into the new module using a diagnostic scan tool. Follow the
programming steps outlined in the diagnostic scan tool for “PCM Replaced” or “WCM Replaced” under “Miscellaneous
Functions” for the “WCM/Wireless Control Module” menu item as appropriate.
Note: Be certain to enter the correct country code for the SKREEM/WCM. If the incorrect country code is
programmed into the SKREEM, it cannot be changed and the SKREEM must be replaced.
Note: If the PCM and the SKREEM/WCM are replaced at the same time, all vehicle ignition keys will need to
be replaced and new keys programmed into the new SKREEM/WCM.


The PIN the talk about can be obtained from your local dealer by providing the VIN and proof you own the vehicle.

Without it being drivable the cheapest options aren't available. If you can't program it yourself...then it's a Mobile Locksmith or similar.

There's no remote programming so both the vehicle and key fob(s) have to be present together for the programming with a compatible programmer/scan tool.

Call some mobile locksmiths in your local area. You indicate you have a proper blank key fob and he locksmiths don't care. A dealer will often refuse to program fobs which you didn't buy from them.
