Since you have an '03, the body harness should already be compatible.

Just to clarify, I've realized a lot of people that aren't very educated on this call the engine bay harness the body harness which I'm guessing you are too by your question. To answer it, no... that will not solve your problem.

You will need an engine bay harness as well as the engine harness. the actual body harness (under dash to back by tail lights) does not need to be swapped. The engine bay harness has more than just solenoid wiring on it. Wiring for TIP, IAT and a few other things are all different. your best bet is to find an engine bay harness on ebay. I've seen people try to cut corners and use a non SRT bay harness only to end up having to buy one and swap it out.

No problem. Just don't want you to end up getting everything in then realizing you really do need the engine bay harness.

SKIM and keyless entry are two separate systems, but the answer is still yes you just need your VIN flashed in the SRT pcm and everything will work fine. As a matter of fact... See my signature? I can do that for you when you're ready, just PM me and we can talk.
