Red blinking light and...

Red blinking light and the key will not work to unlock the car to even try to start it

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

I don't know its the first time I ever saw it blinking? The key will only work on the trunk making the alarm go off

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2011 Chrysler touring convertible

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am just trying to get in it and drive. nothing has been wrong with it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just remembered the engine light did pop on and off that is it. just was wondering will it reset or do i need to call a tow company to get in it

Is there an aftermarket alarm, remote start, or immobilizer on the vehicle?

The fob nor key will unlock the drivers door?

a remote starter was on it when I purched the car. No it will not open even when prompting the key or putting in in the lock itself.

It appears whatever was wired into the car for this remote start system is also a partial alarm system that takes over the cars electronics for the door locks. This is what is preventing you from gaining access. being a convertible you can go through the rear seats to gain entry. You will need to get in through the drivers door yourself or via locksmith. Once inside if the car will not start the best option would be to look under the drivers side of the dash and remove this aftermarket system and address the fact the key can not open the door, then get OEM style fobs working. After that you should no longer have this type issue.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

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.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
