2003 Dodge Stratus R/T Key Immobilizer Security System
My name is chris an owner of 2003 Stratus R/T, I recently had the misfortune ofbreakingthe only key to my car. Because of the Key Immobilizer security system I had my car towed to the local dodge dealer to have my car programed for a new key. They were able to cut me a new key, however they were unable to program the new key. The tech called the support line and was suggested the "Immobilizer Security System" might need to be replaced ($600 dollar repair, Ouch!.)
I have never had any problem with anything mechanical or electrical with the car, so I really don't think there is anything wrong "ISS." Could the dealer be making a mistake? Is there any other options I can look into for solving the problem.
P.S. There is a TSB # 0800303A Which involves the ISS, But I'm not sure if it's for the R/T model, or what the exact problem it referrs to.
Thanks in advance,
