Default RE: 2005 galant ECU problems

you should be able to reprogram the keys, as the immobilizer will no longer recognize the keys after you replaced the PCM.

You only needed to replace the immobilizer with the PCM on pre-2001 cars. The new immobilizers will learn to communicate with the new PCM if everything is programmed.
