SKIM means Sentry Key Immobilizer System. It prevents unauthorized operation of the vehicle by
disabling the engine. The system will shut the engine down after 2 seconds of running if an invalid
key is used to start the vehicle. This system utilizes ignition keys which have an electronic chip
(transponder) embedded into them. Only keys that have been programmed to the vehicle can be
used to start and operate the vehicle for more than the two second validation time period.
During normal operation, the Sentry Key Indicator light, located on the instrument panel upper
cover, will come on for 3 seconds immediately after the ignition is turned on for a bulb check.
Afterwards, if the bulb remains on solid, this indicates a problem with the electronics. If the bulb
begins to flash after the bulb check, this indicates that an invalid key has been used to start the
vehicle or there is a communication failure between the transponder and the Sentry Key
Immobilizer module. Both of these lamp conditions will result in the engine being shut down after 2
seconds of running. Keep in mind that a key which has not been programmed is also considered
an invalid key even if it is cut to fit the ignition for that vehicle.
