2005 Dodge Durango Limited: Battery dead. Charged battery for 8 hours…

Customer Question
2005 Dodge Durango Limited 5.7L Wife...
2005 Dodge Durango Limited 5.7L
Wife left key in "on" position for two days. Battery dead. Charged battery for 8 hours, started engine. Engine shutdown within 2 seconds of start. Repeated 4 or 5 times before battery appeared to be dead again. Bought new battery and installed. Engine will not crank.
Also noted the key fobs do not work either. Checked 30A fuse under hood labeled for starter, and is good.

What will prevent start up after a dead battery? Is this related to the Theft Protection system?

At this point I am waiting until Monday to have it towed to the Dodge dealer unless you have an answer that gets the "grocery getter" started.

Hello Sir or Madam. Welcome to justanswer!

 

Is the battery fully charged now?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes, I put it on the charger until charger amperage was less than 2amps.
Dodge Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok, unhook the negative battery cable for about 2 minutes.... Then connect it and try again. What happens?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Same result. Turned key to on, heard a lot of clicking and then turned key to start. Nothing happens at all.

 

When cycling the key to on, I don't hear the fuel pump either.

Dodge Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

Sounds like the battery is bad...Try jumps tarting it...What happens?

Tried starting with the charger connected with same result. No engine crank, or starter engagement either. Not even a click when turning the key to start.
Dodge Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

Well I got embarressed by my wife. Her brother told her to try her other key, which she did and it started. We switched keys again and the engine started but shutdown within a second or two. We then put the other key in, started the engine and all works fine. It appears the key that was in the ignition lost it's code when the battery went dead.
Dodge Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Oh boy, bad keys can be confusing. You wonder why it only forgot one key... If it made sense it would have forgot both...

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
This is strange to me. This was a new key last year which was coded at purchase for a large fee. I'm going to call the local Dodge dealer and talk to them about it and hopefully I won't be charged another $150 for coding the key twice.
Dodge Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

Sorry for the delay...

 

Hope it works out...
