Customer Question
Key won't turn over...

Key won't turn over dodge 2500 (2007) 5.9 diesel. Couple of times the horn went off when I opened the driver door, but truck was in park. I can start with the remote start, put in key...push break (anti theft), radio and aux items turn off, but can drive the truck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

I can drive it fine, just can't start with the key. Key is not worn...even tried spare key.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your B2500?

It is a dodge 2500 mega cab

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not that vehicle

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

  • I am sorry no one has helped yet in return for the question fees you have already paid.
  • I believe I can help with this question.
  • Reply and let me know when your able to work on this concern.
  • Looks like we need to reprogram the theft system. If this is an aftermarket remote start though, this could disable that feature.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris

Do you need more help from me?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sure. If we can figure it out...would be cheaper than the dealership.
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Is this a Dodge or aftermarket remote start?

Do you have a scan tool?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Aftermarket. Yes I have a scan tool. My mechanic determined that it was not the aftermarket remote start. He thinks it may be the WIN module...how can I determine that?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Any thoughts?
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Are there codes stored in the module related to the theft system?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can't remember the number, but it was the one that comes up if you turn off the engine and do not remove the key and then start again..
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

I will need to know all current codes to start this diag process.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It was a 2 amp fuse. Fixed
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Glad you got it resolved. Now you just need to find what shorted out the fuse.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
