Powertrain Control Module Initialization
ALL LISTED VEHICLES EXCEPT SEBRING COUPE/STRATUS COUPE (ST),
CROSSFIRE, AND SPRINTER.
When a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is replaced on vehicles equipped with the
Sentry Key™ Theft Deterrent System, it must be initialized to properly function with the
anti-theft module. This is accomplished at a Chrysler Group Dealer by using the DRBIII®
or StarSCAN™ Scan Tool to enter a PIN number.
When the PIN number is not available from the vehicle owner or a Chrysler Group Scan
Tool(s) is not available this can be accomplished by writing the Vehicle Identification
Number (VIN) into the PCM using an after-market scan tool with a “VIN Write Function”.
More information is available from the scan tool manufacturer or the Equipment & Tool
