My resource at home shows Stratus up to 2005. It could be an editing mistake if you really have an 06.
Here is the reason you should always have 3 keys for most Chrysler and Ford and some GM products:
If you have two distinct keys, they can be used to ON BOARD PROGRAM a third. This eliminated the need to pay me ( Locksmith ) to use the legitimate, licensed scan tool and software to add a key. I need to use it on these when you only have none or one.
A good locksmith can take you one last ductaped together, worn bladed key, measure the cuts, and convert back to the original key code through his/her databases. Then a NEW key is produced… a NEW one… not a trace of the old tired one.
Then the appropriate RFID chip is put into the new keys ( I believe that would be a Phillips 46 chip ) and hook up to the diagnostics port, read the pin code, program the keys, collect a little dough and make you a happy camper.
TIPS: never throw away the old keys… if worn down, a fresh key can be made as outlined above, we cut the chip out of the old key and transplant it… no programming needed!
ByPassing can be done, but it can result in expensive repairs later, when something else on the vehicle needs service and the tech is chasing down AMC Gremlins. Keep the electrical system FACTORY… this will save more than the cost of a few keys later on !
