Question about Dodge Caravan
Solution can be emailed to me at email@example.com
If I understand your question correctly, The LED blinking in your dash means that your anti theft circuit associated with the electronic chip in the black plastic covered key has been activated. I had the same thing happen in a 2000 Ford Freestar van. My battery went deader than dead one winter. I called AAA for a jump. When they hooked up the cables, that light started blinking and blinked faster when I turn the key. I had to have it towed to Walmart as the battery was almost new. They put it in and it wouldn't start. Thank God for AAA+ as I had to have it towed to Ford to get the computer reprogrammed. Here comes the hook. I also had to have my wife's key because they can only program it with 2 keys. Either I pay a cab for a 24 mile round trip or I pay an extra $20.00 for a new key. Hmmm? Moral to the story? Have 2 keys with you when you take it to Dodge for reprogramming. Good luck.
P.S. I will also e-mail this as requested. I posted it here for the benefit of anyone else who needs it.

SOURCE: Keyless Entry Key Doesn't Work
Regarding the remote transmitter issue: Take the remote transmitter to your Toyota dealer. Ask them to test your transmitter with their hand-held RF detector. All Toyota dealers are required to have one of these devices. The RF detector will test the remote to see if it is indeed transmitting the proper RF out of the transmitter, and the strength of the RF signal. If there is no signal, the remote has failed (unfortunatly common), and the remote will need to be replaced and reprogrammed to the vehicle. I do this quite regularly, and rarely do I tell customers taht they need to spend 800 dollars for such a simple diagnosis/fix. The keyless system is very reliable. I rarely change the ECU for the keyless, unless somebody somehow gets the ECU wet, then it def needs replaced. Hope this helps.

sometimes you have to hold the lock and unlock at the same time and stand close to your jeep until the locks unlock and lock agian if that works then they are reset if not than try to change the batterys in one remote and retry

more than likely in the interlock device i have known these things to mess with all kinds of systems on cars have it checked out to make sure everything is correctly connected and that they did not hook into the security system by accident.

It sounds like your FOB needs to be reprogrammed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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
