Thanks TGS for the heads up. I have a gray key. C an you give me some direction or advice for picking out the correct PCM ? Like I said, tired of running on 5 cylinders. Just driving it to and from local places (2 or 3 miles) daily. And yes, I'm from the town of the largest high school fieldhouse in the world! Thanks for all the help to everyone
Damn, that's too bad!
You need to look for another 300M, Concorde or Intrepid from 1998 - 2001 that has the factory skim and key.
I think the ideal donor for you would be a 300M.
All of the 300Ms come with skim.
But, you can also look for the Concorde with the 3.2 or an Intrepid with the 3.2 or 3.5. Most, but not all, of the 3.2 and 3.5 cars have skim...not all.
If the car has a red light in the center of the dash, that's a good sign.
Then verify by removing the steering wheel cover and locating the skim module.
But none of that matters if you don't have the key.
You have to have the key in order to make it work in your car.
Once you locate a donor car, pick up the PCM, the skim module (under the steering wheel), the key. the lock cylinder and to be safe, the BCM.
And you need to verify that the transponder key is good.
I'm not sure how to verifiy that a grey key is still functional.
The idea is to swap your pcm, and swap the skim module and test it by taping the donor key to the skim module and using your old key to turn over the ignition.
If the car starts and runs for more that two seconds, you're good to go.
If not, you probably need to swap the BCM, too.
