Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

The RED dot is your security system telling you that either the key or key module is bad.. Do you have a spare key to try?

Talk soon,

Brad

I bought the. Truck a. Few. Ago. Light. Was. On. Then. , yes. I. Do. Have. Spare. Fob. That. Was. Activated. But. Still. Nothing

Ok if the spare key does not work either then it's very likely your key module is bad and it will need to be replaced.. Are you going to be doing the repairs? Do you have a scantool to program the new WN module?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Was. Going. To. It. Myself. No. Scan. Tool.
Expert:  -Brad- replied 20 days ago.

If you don't have a scantool then you will not be able to repair this yourself.. The new WIN module needs to be programmed before it will allow you to start the vehicle.. We(Dealership) charge 1 hour labor which is around $100.00 to program modules...
