Code P513 DODGE Caravan

I have a p 513 code in my 2005 dodge caravan I know that it means that the anti theft prevention didn't recognise my key. my question is if I clear the code will it then recognise the key or is there some way the anti theft can be disabled?

Welcome to the forums.

The anti theft system is controlled by the ECU (electronic control unit) and cannot be bypassed. You can remove power from the ECU or disconnect the battery for several minutes to reset ECU.

Make there are no other chip type keys on your ring with that vehicle key.

I'm guessing you only have the one key for the vehicle.

If resetting the ECU doesn't take care of the problem then you will have to go to a dealer and have a new key programmed thru their computer.
