I own an 06 Durango SLT 5.7. My key is transmitting a signal…

Customer Question
Hello, I own an 06...
Hello, I own an 06 Durango SLT 5.7. My key is transmitting a signal but apparently the vehicle is not getting it. Therefore I can only open my door manually. When I do this, since it receives no signal from the key, my security system believes I am breaking in and my lights flash but the horn does not sound. My vehicle does not have an engine disengager so I am able to drive it but the lights continue to flash. Someone with some knowledge said that it may be a faulty radio frequency module but I can find no part that goes by that name. Any ideas? Thank you.

I attached a procedure for you to reset the complete system. If this does NOT work, then there is an actual problem with the system that would require a scan tool to help diagnose this.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep
this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

I'm sorry but what you have sent me does not apply. As stated in my question my vehicle does not disengage the engine when the security system is activated.
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

Okay, try this then. See new attachment.

If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly appreciate a 5
star rating now and I will still assist you after you have rated me
too if another question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you
until you rate me.
Thanks again, Ron

My vehicle is not receiving the signal from my key. Are you saying you believe it is the computer? I was led to believe that there was a module that receives the signal and then passes it on to the system. Is that incorrect?
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

One step at a time, it can be a bad module or communication issue through the twisted pair wiring on the BUS.

If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly appreciate a 5

too if another question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you

I will try to reset the computer but what is the BUS?
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

The BUS is the communication link between ALL the modules.

Please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep this link for future correspondence.

Thanks again, Ron

Okay, I finally had a chance to try what you suggested and it was not effective.
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

You used the scan tool like I said too and did all those tests?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
You told me to reset the computer, you did not tell me to run a scan tool. Which scan tool do you speak of?
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

Read my very first post to you where it states a scan tool may be required.

Please rate me for my time.

Thanks, Ron

Are you referencing a code reader? Is that the scan tool you are discussing? If so I have no indicator lights on my dashboard. Would it still read it?
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

No, a scan tool, NOT a code reader. You can borrow one from a parts store for a deposit if you want too and the will direct you how to use the type they have.
