Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

If the security system is activated you will see a key with a slash thru in on the cluster, do you see this symbol? Do you have another key to try?

Talk soon,

Brad
