Sentry Key upgrade?

Can you upgrade to Sentry Key? Is it a module like RKE or is it hardwired into the BCM or PCM? I know it was an option all the way back to 98 or 99 so could I upgrade my 01?

What do you guys think?

You could, but I'm really not sure why you would want to. Replacement/duplicate keys are expensive and it's really not that secure. IMHO, you'd get better return on your dollar by getting a quality aftermarket alarm system...

to be honest db, I'm considering doing it just to do it. I'm starting a couple mod projects to my car and I'm thinking about adding this to the list.

If it would be as simple as adding a module to the PCM or BCM, I think I'd like to do it. If I have to replace an entire PCM or BCM, well then Its probably more effort than I feel like putting in.

There are things you have to add, like the antenna around the key cylinder, but I think there is also programming required within the BCM to activate it. I believe doig this also communicates information to the PCM and ECU. I don't know of anyone doing the mod nor do I know exactly what all it would take. But from what I understand it seems like significant effort...
