It sounds like your FOB needs to be reprogrammed, email me at bigt_wlm@juno.com around thursday and I will try to email you the programming instructions for that, If I am not able to you will need to call a locksmith with a T-Code or MVP Pro key programmer or DODge to programm your remote to your ECU

SOURCE: How to program a used

Hi,

If this is an used FOB,you will need to take it back to the dealer as the only way to program the fob is with a scan tool. They should do it for free any way as they lost the progra.

Procedure to program NEW FOB :-

Programming The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Module
1. Unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System.
2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch.
3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting the engine.
4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum five seconds (maximum ten seconds).
5. While still holding the UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press the PANIC button and release both at the same time. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s).
6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press and release any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful.
7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle, up to 4 total.
8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s).
9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Kindly accept my solution.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Whether your key fob is damaged or just has a dying battery, there is a way for you to unlock your vehicle and start the car. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Press and hold the auxiliary key release button on the underside of the key fob.
  2. Grab the looped end at the top of your key fob.
  3. Pull out the auxiliary key.
  4. Use the auxiliary key to unlock the driver's side door.

HOW TO START THE MAZDA 3 WITH A BROKEN OR DEAD KEY

Now that you've managed to enter the vehicle with the auxiliary key, you're going to need to know how to start your Mazda 3. At this point, the auxiliary key can be put back into the key fob, as the key fob can still be used to start your vehicle. This will only take a few extra steps.
  1. Make sure the shifter is in the Park (P) or Neutral (N) position.
  2. Depress the brake pedal.
  3. The light on the engine start button should flash green.
  4. Take your key fob and touch the back of it to the push button start.
  5. When the green light on the engine start button stops flashing and remains continuously illuminated, press the push button start normally to start the engine.
  6. It is recommended you allow the vehicle to idle for about 10 seconds.

New Dodge Journey 2011 Where would the key enclosed in keyfob fit to start the vehicle if remote not working?


I just changed the battery in my fob for 2011 Journey Crew, with the battery removed ( from fob ) I did start my car by pushing the start button whith my fob... so the theory is tested and true.... also the battery you'll need is CR2032 available everywhere... and removing the battery will NOT remove the programming of your fob ( also tested )... so no need to visit the "steelership" Hope this helps....
