It won't start the...

It won't start the program went out on the key fob and I am having trouble resetting it.....I changed the batteries in the fob it started and ran for a day now it won't start - we also put a new battery in the car

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

Which battery - key fob? Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2012 Dodge Charger hemi - can't get it out of gear either so it can be towed if necessary

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

Did the entire routine with the key fob on the start button - worked the other day but not working now

What Customers are Saying:

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. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. 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.
