Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

The red light is your security light meaning the key or key module is bad.. I would try a spare key to rule out a bad module, if you don't have a spare key then you will need to call a mobile locksmith to come out and cut and program you a new key..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to shoot me a reply and don't forget to RATE 5 Stars before leaving the site so I get credit for helping you today..

Have a great day,
