Customer Question

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.
JA: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?
Customer: I can drive it fine, just can't start with the key. Key is not worn...even tried spare key.
JA: What year is your B2500?
Customer: it is a dodge 2500 mega cab
JA: Are you fixing your B2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: not that vehicle
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope

  • 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

Took it to a mechanic. He thinks it is the SKREEM
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Glad you got it resolved.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Didnt. Still not positive what it is.
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Do you need more help from me?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sure. If we can figure it out...would be cheaper than the dealership.
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Is this a Dodge or aftermarket remote start?

Do you have a scan tool?

Customer: replied 9 months 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 can I determine that?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Any thoughts?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 9 months 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..
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was a 2 amp fuse. Fixed
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

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