The security system won't let us start the truck, Everything

Customer Question

The security system won't let us start the truck
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery?
Customer: Everything is locked. The key will turn Windows Orkney and the light that indicates the security is on. The battery is good and it does not turn over
JA: What is the model/year of your Dodge?
Customer: 2007 dodge Dakota
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We put the key in the door to lock it and removed then put the key back in and unlocked it and tried to start it. No good
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: We tried to use the fob and that didn't work
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Ok, we first need to reset the security system. In the engine compartment is the IOD fuse(20amp). It is fuse #6 and is for the security system.

Remove it for 60 seconds, then reinstall and crank engine. It should start at that point
