Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth and Jeep began using transponder chip keys in 1998. Transponder based systems are standard on some models, and optional on most others. If your key has a gray or tan colored rubber head, it is transponder. Additionaly, certain 2004 up models use keys with the keyless remote feature built in the head. Most of the vehicles which use keys with the remote built into the head have active transponder immobilization.

Chrysler, etc. cars may have additional keys added using a simple on-board procedure, only if the user has two existing keys which are already programmed. If there is only one key available, the vehicle must be connected to our diagnostic equipment. A vehicle specific PIN code is needed for the process.

An exception to the above is the 2-door Stratus and 2-door Sebring. These use Mitsubishi style locks, and program according to Mitsubishi protocol without the need of a vehicle specific PIN.

If all keys are lost, a proper transponder key needs to be originated, and the vehicle needs to be connected to programming equipment together with using the vehicle's PIN code.

Rescue Ron is able to duplicate and originate virtually all Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth and Jeep chip keys.
