Customer Question
We own a...

We own a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 and a couple of weeks ago it started having issues with the key fob not starting the truck. we checked the key fob and it works, We towed it into a Dodge dealership and they said nothing was wrong. It is still doing this. he has to keep turning on and off and jiggling it and it will finally start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, we took it to the Dodge dealership in Cedar Rapids IA.

Okay, found your truck and it has the Sentry Key system. I have seen a few issues with that switch module (where you insert the key fobik) cause this intermittent no crank issue. Ask the dealer to replace the ignition switch module. When you do, have all key fobiks available so they can be programmed if needed.

I am very confident that this will fix it.
