I also work for Chrysler Corp. and I agree, If the vehicle was equipped with "SKIM or SKREEM" key, it would only start and run for a few seconds at a time and would eventually stop starting alltogether. You would then have to wait an exess of a half hour to restart (even with the correct programmed key). If your vehicle is starting with a basic key blank then you do not have a "chip". Also if you want to verify this call a local Dodge dealership and have them run your VIN to check the build configuration; options list, they can tell you everything that your vehicle is equipped with. hope this was helpfull... Oh, the lock up thing is not true, the key that you use to start your vehicle has nothing to do with your engine locking up. The computer will disable the output to the starter and ASD circuit but would certainly not LOCK UP your engine.

actually what would happen is vehicle would start and run about 10 seconds and then shut off do this 3 times and computer would go into theft mode and then vehicle would not crank then until u disconnect battery for 1 hr.

Bryan is correct... in the majority of vehicles, the security "feature" kicks in once the car runs for about 10-15 seconds - and that's also correct, sometimes there is also a total lockout, anti-theft feature - a friend of mine runs - he has some helpful articles and tips on more affordable replacements/remotes - best of luck.
