Can a new FOB key be self programmed on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: i have 2 FOB's both working... 1 is starting to fail... i bought replacement FOB's reading online that they can be programmed as long as I have 2 working FOB's. Is this correct?
