Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

None of the buttons on either fob will do anything?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I fixed the problem already .since I still had the original keyfobs i,just put them on the switch and was able to start the car up and let the car program the key fob one at a time. I'm 100 miles away,from work so I could afford to wait for your answer. I got it done 10 minutes after I got off the computer
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Well it still isn't fixed. The remote dosent respond unless I touch the push button. Can you email me my answer or text my cell phone since I can't receive the call while I'm driving or at work. I have to be in the car to let it work.
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

Sorry this new concern i do not believe I can assist on not in person. I will opt out.

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.

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.
