Customer Question
Neither key fob is...

Neither key fob is working to unlock doors.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever had to reprogram your fob? How old is the battery?

Unlocked door with key and alarm goes off/wont start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Battery approx 1 year old. Had key fob reprogrammed less than 1 year ago. Car would shut down and ignition wouldnt work. As if clutch wasnt depressed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Hopefully. I dont remember my alarm ever going off when unlocking door with key

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chrysler Mechanic should know about your Chrysler?

When i open the door my alarm goes off. Can i bypass this? The ignition is unresponsive. Even after alarm resets itself

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

No vehicle information was posted with the question but it sounds as if you may have a bad wireless control module. The WCM is the module that validates the transponder in the key to allow the engine to start and is also the keyless entry receiver.

What year and model is the vehicle?

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
