Welcome to JA my name is Mark.

By the sounds of it you may just have a dead battery. Can you try a jump start and see if that gets it going?

Hi Mark the truck starts fine new battery's in fob. Fob will not unlock doors, no dash lights interior lights, and if you try to lock doors with manual switch does not work also. Is there a way to reset I heard this from some one else?
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 3 months ago

Thanks for the reply. Ok, so the truck starts, I wasn't aware of that based on your info.

Based on that fact, I suspect you have a fuse that is likely blown. There are a few different ones that it could be so the best bet is to check each and every fuse. There is the fuse box under the hood and also the one inside the truck. Use a test light or volt meter and check each one and I think you'll find your issue.

Please let me know how you make out and if you need anything further. Thanks.

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.
