Welcome to Allpar. You need 2 operating FOBs in order to program a 3rd by following the self-programming procedure described in the link.
Since you only have one FOB that works, you will need to have the 2nd one programmed with a scan tool like a Chrysler DRB III (or equivalent).
Have both FOBs with you during the scan tool programming procedure as both will have to be done together at the same time.

You should be able to program a second remote with only one working on a 1997 van because I could with my old 1999 van.
I am unsure the process in the other thread is valid or necessary. The instructions for programming a second remote with one working remote were in the owner's manual for my 1999 van.

My 2003GC, too, only requires one working key to program up to three more.

My bad too, I meant remote - not key!

Yes, prior to the SKIM keys you only needed a single working remote to program another remote. The newer chip keys (SKIM) are a different animal, requiring 2 to program a new one.
