    Welcome to Allpar. Changing a starter shouldn't affect SKIM operation unless something electrically happened before the battery was disconnected or while the battery was reconnected?
    Is it possible that the SKIM key itself got damaged? You may want to have a 2nd one anyways.
    Did you try starting it with jumper cables that may have sent a 'spike' through the electrical system? Have you tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery since then in an attempt to reset things?
    Does P0513 come right back after reconnecting the battery?
    There may be more useful fault codes stored in the SKIM module? You might need a more advanced scan tool to read them.
    Follow the 'Possible Causes' and as much of the troubleshooting steps as you can on p. 197 here:

    2006 was the first year for the TIPM. You might try resetting it by disconnecting both battery cables and holding them together for 15 minutes. According to another site for PT's, this resets the TIPM. I never had to do it to mine as I had an 03 GT.
