Sentry Key Immobilizer Module (SKREEM) - Description
The Sentry Key REmote Entry Module (SKREEM) (1) is sometimes referred to as the Wireless Control Module (WCM). The SKREEM is the primary
component of the Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS). It is also the receiver for the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) system. The SKREEM is located
on the right side of the steering column, near the ignition lock cylinder housing and is concealed beneath the steering column shrouds. The molded black
plastic housing for the SKREEM has an integral molded plastic halo-like antenna ring (4) that extends from the bottom. When the SKREEM is properly
installed on the steering column, the antenna ring is oriented around the circumference of the ignition lock cylinder housing.
A single integral connector receptacle (3) is located just behind the antenna ring on the bottom of the SKREEM housing. An integral molded plastic
mounting tab (2) on the rear corner of the SKREEM housing has a hole in the center through which a screw passes to secure the unit to the steering
column. The SKREEM is connected to the vehicle electrical system through a single take out and connector of the instrument panel wire harness.
Two SKREEM modules are used: one for vehicles equipped with RKE only, and one for vehicles equipped with RKE and SKIS. The SKREEM cannot
be adjusted or repaired. If ineffective or damaged, the entire SKREEM unit must be replaced.
