SUBJECT:
No Engine Crank Or No Engine Start Due To Electronic Lockup Of The WCM / SKREEM
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves the replacement of the Wireless Control Module (WCM), and if
equipped, the replacement of the Electric Steering Column Lock (ELV). The WCM is also
referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM).

NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles built on or before May 05, 2008 (MDH
0505XX).
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer will experience a no engine crank AND a no engine start condition. Also, the
remote keyless entry (RKE) system will not operate. This condition may be due to an
electrostatic discharge (ESD) from the ignition key into the Wireless Control Module
(WCM), causing the WCM to electronically lockup. This condition may occur more
frequently in dry and/or cold weather conditions where a sufficient electrostatic charge is

more easily produced. This condition is corrected by the replacement of the WCM.
DIAGNOSIS:
1. With the condition present (i.e. the vehicle in the no crank / no start condition), connect
the StarSCAN® scan tool to the vehicle.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position, and power up the StarSCAN®.
3. If the WCM is electronically locked up, the StarSCAN® will display the WCM as being
“off bus”.
4. If the no crank / no start condition is present, and the WCM is “off bus”, then reset the
WCM by temporarily removing the IOD fuse (with the key out of the ignition switch),
wait for 10 seconds and then reinstall the IOD fuse.
5. With the IOD fuse reset having been performed, verify that the vehicle will now crank,
start, and run.
6. If the condition is temporarily corrected by performing the above steps, and if the part
number of the WCM is earlier than the part number of the WCM listed in the part
reference table in the Service Bulletin Parts Required Section below, then perform the
Repair Procedure.
PARTS REQUIRED:
NOTE: The part numbers listed in the following part reference table are to be used
as A GUIDE to help determine if the WCM, that is currently in the vehicle, may
require replacement. If it is determined that the WCM requires replacement,
then ALWAYS REFER TO THE PARTS MANUAL to determine the correct
WCM for the specific vehicle in question. In some earlier model years, the
WCM may rule (supersede) to one of the part numbers listed in the table
below. ALWAYS REFER TO THE PARTS MANUAL (not the part reference
table below) to determine the correct part number ruling (supercedence /
substitution). MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE CORRECT WCM IS ORDERED THE
FIRST TIME FOR THE SPECIFIC VEHICLE IN QUESTION.

REPAIR PROCEDURE:
NOTE: If the vehicle (a JS model vehicle in certain International markets) is
equipped with an Electric Steering Column Lock (ELV), then the WCM and
the ELV must be replaced. Replace the WCM and then the ELV. Next program
the WCM and at least one ( 1 ) ignition key BEFORE programming the ELV.
IMPORTANT: Not following this repair process correctly will cause the new
ELV to fail.
NOTE: Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder. This will move the shaft
lock module locking bolt to the unlocked position. LEAVE the key in the lock
cylinder while the shaft lock module is being removed.
1. If vehicle is equipped with a Steering Shaft Lock Module (JS - Avenger / Stratus some International Markets), then the Shaft Lock Module will require replacement.
From the Service Info tab select: 8 - Electrical > Vehicle Theft Security - Security
Information > Module, Shaft Lock > Removal and Installation.

NOTE: The shaft lock module cannot be removed from the steering column while the
locking bolt is in the locked position without irreversibly damaging the
column. Before attempting service, the ignition key must have been inserted
into the ignition lock cylinder. Then rotate the steering wheel from side to
side. If the steering wheel can be rotated, the locking bolt is in the unlocked
position. Leave the key in the ignition lock cylinder until shaft lock module
removal has been completed. If the steering wheel cannot be rotated, test
and repair the wiring circuits between the module and the ignition switch as
required. If no problem is found in these circuits, the module has failed with
the locking bolt in the locked position and both the module and the steering
column must be replaced with new units.
2. Replace the WCM/SKREEM. Refer to TechCONNECT for detailed service information.
From the Service Info tab select: 8 - Electrical > Vehicle Theft Security - Service
Information > Module, Sentry Key Remote Entry > Removal and Installation.
NOTE: Obtain the vehicle PIN number prior to programming WCM/SKREEM or ELV.
NOTE: If during the following steps the PIN number is properly entered but is
rejected, then reenter the PIN number again until it is accepted.
3. After both the WCM/SKREEM and the ELV (if equipped) have been replaced, Program
the WCM/SKREEM as follows;
a. Turn the ignition key to the ON position, (Engine Off)
b. Connect the scan tool (StarSCAN®) to the data link connector and turn the ignition
to the RUN position, (engine off).
c. Select “ECU View.”
d. Scroll down and select “WCM” in the list of modules.
e. Select “Misc. Functions.”
f. Scroll to “WCM Replaced.”
g. Press “Start.”
h. Press “Next.”
i. Select “Show Keyboard.”
j. Enter the vehicle PIN number.
k. Select “Next.”
l. Verify PIN is correct.
m.Select “Next.”
n. Follow on-screen prompts to complete WCM function programing for Tire Pressure
Monitoring (TPM) and so on.
o. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Wait 30 seconds.
p. Turn the ignition key to the ON position, (Engine Off)
q. Select “ECU View.”
r. Scroll down and select “WCM” in the list of modules.
s. Select “Misc. Functions.”
t. Select “Program Ign. Keys” and follow on-screen prompts.
u. Select “Complete.”
v. Verify ignition key will start vehicle and the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) functions
operate.

CAUTION: If the vehicle is equipped with a Shaft Lock Module (used in some
International Markets on JS model vehicles), then at least one ( 1 )
ignition key must have been programmed to the new WCM BEFORE the
new Shaft Lock Module is “married” to the new WCM.
4. Is the vehicle equipped with Steering Shaft Lock Module (ELV)?
a. Yes >>> Proceed to Step #5.
b. No >>> Repair is complete.
5. Program the ELV as follows;
a. Select “ECU View.”
b. Scroll down and select “WCM” in the list of modules.
c. Select “Misc. Functions.”
d. Scroll to “ELV Replaced.”
e. Press “Start.”
f. When complete, verify steering shaft lock mechanism is operating. Remove and
insert key from the ignition lock cylinder and listen for solenoid “click” at lower end of
column.
