Good evening 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.

Have you connected a scantool to retrieve the codes to see what is going on? If not you will need to see what codes it has in order to get it fixed. You can rent or borrow one from your local parts store.. Also while you have the scantool connected it would be a good idea to go ahead and let me know when you have it connected so we can do a few tests to diagnose the issue so when you return to the parts store you can pick the part up..

Talk soon,

If you have disconnected the battery and it still will not start then will the remote lock/unlock the doors? Will the engine crank over or not? Are your headlghts bright?

Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

Yes I'm here, I was replying as I have other customers I'm helping as well..

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Thank you. My lights are working - remote locks for the doors work- engine won't turn over

Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

Ok if the engine will not turn over it could be a bad WIN module which is the part you stick your key into. Do you see a red light in the dash on or just the ETC lightning bolt?

Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

At this time I will need to know what codes it has before I can determine what is going on.. I would need to know if the WIN module is giving the PCM(Engine Computer) the "Ok to Start"message. If yes then we need to check the codes in the PCM, and if not then it's likely a bad WIN module.
