Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Are you able to access the vehicle at all and if so will the engine start and run?

Fob locks the doors but does not unlock
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

If the battery was already replaced in the remote and you can still lock and unlock with the interior buttons and it starts and runs properly it sounds like the remote itself has failed.Since it locks the doors but does not unlock the doors this indicates an internal fault with the fob itself with it needing to be replaced.I have run into this several times before where it will operate one function like the locking but not the unlocking and had to replace the entire fob to correct this fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

The older Chrysler vans had a fuse you could pull and put back in

To reboot the locking system .. remember ?
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

On this one, unfortunately, the remote has to be programmed by either a dealers computer plugged into your vehicle to access programming or by a compatible scan tool plugged into your vehicle that can also perform the programming procedure.There isn't a manual way to reprogram it.

And since it does work to lock the doors but not unlock this indicates an internal fault with the fob itself.If it was a programming fault it would not be able to lock or unlock the doors.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time, this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5-star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
