I didn't purchase it from Ebay. It is the proper key fob as notice by a locksmith. And there's no red light when I press either button. However, my other functioning fob doesn't light up when I press it - so now what?????

PS sorry for the delay.....got unexpected company that kept me prettybusy.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

hey how are you

first we have to have a red light on the key fob , when you press it, the best course is to have it scanned with a diagnostic scanner that can communicate with anti theft module, and the can test the key ,the module receiver, the antenna etc.. to see why not working , but key not lighting up, other than battery in it ,there is a circuit board in it that sends an rf signal to the car receiver .

what are the instruction you have with fob and can you send a me picture of it

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
As I mentioned......my good key fob - that works perfectly - doesn't show the red light when I press it. What gives?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

what gives ?

Expert:  Brad replied 6 months ago.

I'm not sure if the key you have is original but it will come with the laser cut key.. We have to special order the key with the factory remote built onto it.. Part number 05099684AA. It's it a factory key then try this:

STANDARD PROCEDURE - TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

The Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter(s) can be programmed by the customer without special tools.

PROGRAMMING PROCEDURE

Transmitter programming by the customer is done by performing the following steps:

  1. Insert the key into the ignition switch.
  2. Press either the lock or unlock button momentarily twice.
  3. Turn the key in the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 30 seconds.

RKE transmitters do not lock or unlock remotely. RKE transmitter programming required.
Note: Door(s) should be closed during this process.
1) Place the key in the ignition
2) Depress the lock button twice
3) Turn the key to the On/Run position and wait for the warning chime to stop
4) Remove the key from the ignition (only after warning chime has stopped)
5) Test the RKE transmitter operation to complete

If I purchase the remote/ key for my Chrysler Crossfire.......will it work for all things like unlock the door, lock the door, set off the panic alarm as well as start the vehicle??? Unless I know that it will take care of all the things - I won't buy it. Let me know, please.
Thank You.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
All the buttons have to work.
Expert:  Brad replied 6 months ago.
if you purchase a new key it will work all of those things

After being programmed. Thank you for the positive rating.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
That's the problem............who does the programming? I can't even get the one I have to work. I took the Crossfire to be inspected today and asked the service guy to program it for me and he couldn't do it either. I wan to know if I purchase this that when I get it...it's all programmed already.
Expert:  Brad replied 6 months ago.

We(Dealership)can order you a key and program. It costs .5 hrs to program the key which is around $55.00.

Glad I could help and don't forget to rate so I'm credited for my assistance..

Have a great day,

Brad

Does the $55.00 include both the cost of key and programming? Please let me know.
Expert:  Brad replied 6 months ago.

We usually get rated for the original question before answering any follow-up's....

But no the 55.00 is only for programming the keys..

Thank you for the positive rating,
