eliminate skim module?

Post by neontj » Thu Nov 29, 2012 8:46 pm

Ok guys.. so long story I think I fried my ecu n skim.. (skim was junk anyways) anywho.. I have a 2000 dodge neon es.. full options keyless entry etc.. I have a 2000 plymoth neon base no power n no dash harness anymore.. can I use its non sentry key ecu in my car and replace my dash harness to one without skim to eliminate the skim module? Sorry I'm a bit on the broke side n need my car up asap. Lol.. any ideals on help or how to fix it?

I believe it would work. Don't swap harnesses. Remove skim module from under steering column, swap ecu, ignition key cylinder and key. Hopefully it'll work. Someone correct me of im wrong!

You can just unplug and remove the skim module, no need to swap the dash harness. Once the module is out it should work fine with the non-skim ecu. Just make sure the skim module is unplugged and out before plugging in the non-skim ecu because it will change it to a skim ecu automatically.

I did this on my 02 when the skim ecu crapped out, just swapped with a non-skim and all is well. I would imagine the 2000 model works similarly.

Yeah, there's no quick work around to bypass the skim modules since it communicates with the ECU over a digital bus line.
