01 WJ v6 shuts off after 3 seconds

Am looking at a cheap WJ an older guy has for sale. He stopped for gas and the battery cable came loose. After he put it back on, it starts but runs for only 3 seconds then shuts off.
I'm thinking it's the immobilizer but shouldn't it start if he's using the original key?

Re: 01 WJ v6 shuts off after 3 seconds

I would disconnect the battery again and wait for some 10 minutes and try again. For some reason the SKIM (sentry key immobilizer module) is not reading the key. Is the key symbol on the instrument panel flashing (invalid key), or is it on steady (SKIS fault)?
