When a PCM is replaced, please make sure the used module has the same part number as the original module.If the used module comes with a black key, it is a security key. If it’s a grey key, it is not security.

Secret Key is an ID code that is unique to each WIN. This code is programmed and stored in the WIN, the PCM, and each ignition key transponder chip. When the PCM or WIN is replaced,it is necessary to program the Secret Key code into the new module.

Pin Code–A 4 digit PIN is required to enter the Security Access Mode of the WCM/WIN (aftermarket tolls will produce a 5 digit)
