Customer Question

my 2011 ram 1500 key fob just stopped working. replaced the battery.
JA: Have you checked the fob's battery?
Customer: Yes, just replaced it to see if this would fix it
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, if possible. key fob worked when I dropped it Les schwab for tire rotation. when I picked it up, it did not work and had to use manual key to open trunk which sets off alarm. truck starts and runs with fob but locking it means the alarm will come on each time I unlock with manual key. changed battery without change
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No, truck is otherwise fine

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

I attached a doc that will help you fix that. Thanks and please remember to rate me.

Ron
