Question about 2006 Dodge Charger

1 Answer

Key signal Stuck key in ignition but it wouldn't turn over, check engine light was on and little red dot flashing (I think it had something to do with alarm). Had towed to dealership and they said car was no longer recognizing the key signal, and would be about $200 to fix. Bought car less than a year ago and this seems like something Dodge should fix.

    What exactly is your question? It sounds like the key, where the security chip is located, has failed. If it is not under warranty, they won't fix it. It probably is not covered.

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Acura Tl 2005 won't start


This vehicle is equipped with a chipped ignition system.On your dash warning lights,when turn key into on position you'll notice a yellow key symbal, it should flash then go out. If it flashes then goes to solid on, it means the system does not recognize signal from key. This can be because of wrong key(original valet key will not start car) or key for whatever reason has been deprogrammed. Which can only be done by dealership unfortunately. If system is working(light does go out) then you need to look at possible brake switch sensor,park/neutral safety switch on shifter, and for signal at started when key turned to start position

Flashing red dot on my dash for 2002 caravan and wont start


It sounds like the car is not recognizing the key. That red light is the anti-theft indicator. Sometimes due to batteries dying in the key fob or car itself this can happen. The car and key essentially loose track of each other. It can also be a problem with the vehicles control module. This is a situation where you are pretty much stuck with taking it to a Dodge dealership where they can hook it to a scan tool or reprogram a key, depending on what the exact issue is.

The most commonly diagnosed component is the shifter and/or shifter solenoid on your Impala.
GM issued a bulletin on this problem. Contact your dealer, they are aware of the problem and you could be covered under warranty. Below is a copy of the bulletin.
