We recently replaced a PCM in this vehicle (1C3CCCBB2FN756451) and are unable to program a key to it. The dealer provided pin gives us an error of “Authpin is not a valid tech-authority authpin.” I am assuming there is another code we are supposed to be using, but I'm not sure what. I've done some searching, but have come up generally empty handed outside of maybe needing some kind of code from a locksmith with NASTF access or something along those lines.
Any help or answers would be appreciated.
I believe you need a different PIN, provided thru NASTF security program. You may also be able to the job done with help from a NASTF Assisted Immobilizer Reprogramming Service provider. You will find more info on NASTF website. Some aftermarket tools might also be able to pull the PIN.
Make sure you carry out the “ transfer secret code to PCM” function from Immo on your scanner.
I'll have the tech check his scanner for this function. I appreciate it.
Hi Chris, as others have stated, you can obtain the pin by logging in to Stellantis using your LSID. Alternatively you can use Autel IM 508 or 608 to retrieve PIN from vehicle and complete key programming. Question though, have you programmed that module and ran PCM replaced function? You shouldn’t have to program keys during PCM replacement.
PCM has been replaced and programmed (according to the programmer we had come out) but the vehicle will not start because of the key fob.
Dealer generated pin will only with their registered tool. You must obtain a pin through NASTF using your LSID credentials for it to be valid. Its been this way for well over a year now.
I had read that, and told our programmer that, but he said he does not have NASTF credentials, so I will likely need to find a locksmith to do this?
Chris- Id advise steering clear of a programmer with no LSID. Much like this scenario, you'll likely end up with a half finished job…..
rolling pin codes change, also the dealer and the aftermarket have different pin codes. it will require VSC credentials OR aftermarket tooling. which Part of TX are you in? I can get this done if you’re in the Austin area.
I dont believe this is a Rolling PIN. Im thinking Dealer PIN is 4 digit, but key programmer PIN is 5 digit(not interchangeable). Id suggest calling a local AUTO Locksmith out…should be an easy job…and yes, as others said, U must perform the PCM replaced procedure, so the Secret Key transfer takes place…..that done, likely no key programming needs to be done…as said previously.
If you have a LSID you can go to moparkeycode.com and get the aftermarket PIN for the vehicle, if no LSID then need a locksmith to get the PIN.
Chris, Are you replacing this PCM with new or used module? There are workarounds for replacing the PCM. This one is likely GPEC 3 with the Green connector. APNT2 allows you to correct the VIN and change the SKIM keys. You need a communicating original PCM to read the old SKIM keys. The SKIM keys are different than the SKIM code which changes. Once the VIN is correct and SKIM keys correct, the…
New module from dealership. I'm starting to think the programmer we use likely didn't do something correctly.
Call a different programmer in and get this done….as with most shops you don't have time to wait for different tools or resources because the customer needs their vehicle…make sure the Mobile company has their VSP (this will also prove that they are properly insured), make sure they have optional tooling and the resources to get this completed on site. Too many failed attempts will be a problem…
AM Witech is different than the OEM WiTech version, so you need an AM PIN, not a dealer PIN. They're not interchangeable anymore. AM has to go through NASTF for security stuff. At times (depending on Y/M/M) you can program the PCM, but not the security side, so the vehicle will not run. Usually, you cannot program a PCM without the PIN from the start. As soon as you want to change the PCM, you…
