2004 Dodge Intrepid put new battery in, used the key, it

Customer Question

2004 Dodge Intrepid put new battery in, used the gray key, it started, ran for two days fine, this morning will not start. When I turn the key (gray key) the light on top of dashboard flashes, all lights on the panel come on. Engine will not turn over.
JA: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?
Customer: Wiggled around in park, didn't help. Don't know about wheel lock?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Would have to tow it somewhere so hoping to fix it myself!
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not really, have had some work done on it, thermostat cover replaced.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is appreciated.

Do you have another key that will start the engine? Or is that the only key you have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi do have other keys, copies, but only the gray one would start or agree the new battery was in. It does not show any codes. There is a blue bar in the site blocking this, if you are reading this I have no way to send it.

Had to turn phone sideways to send.

you do have a key that will start and run the vehicle?
