    I have a 2004 Dodge Durango. When I got my car the dealer gave me 2 keys with the keyless entry on both. 1 worked the other did not. I tried replacing the battery on the one that didnt work and I tried reprogramming the key after but it never worked. The key worked, but not the keyless entry, so I just use it as a spare. One day a few weeks back I used my spare key to drive to the store. I turned the car on and it died after 2 seconds. I tried again, same thing, another try, same thing. After 6 attempts the car locked down. I got my orginal key and the car worked. I went to the store last night and when I left my main key did the same thing. Now my car is locked down and I have both of my keys, but neither of them work. What should I do?

The only way to fix this type of key is to take it to the dealership. no other shop or reatailer can fix this problem. It shouldnt cost a whole lot to get this done. good luck.

1998 dodge durango. used to have an alarm, I dont have a remote. Alarm should be disabled. truck is acting like its alarm is going off. Ignition is locked. wont turn over

close all the doors and lock them. Try unlocking the passenferside door. See if that esets the alarm. If not let one of the windows down lock the doors and with the key left on disconnect the battery than reconnect it. Reach in the car throw the window and get in, Turn the key off than try starting it. Hope this helps. Leave comment.

How can I get my alarm to go off if my keyless entry does not work?

If I recall correctly, unlocking the door manually via key should also deactivate the alarm...... Give it a try.

My head lights keep flashing on and off all other light no problem check the bulb they are ok

Does the horn work? Sounds like the alarm system is going off. Does vehicle have an after market alarm system? If only has factory alarm try locking and unlocking the drivers door from the out side with the key.

Help need fuse box diagram 04 dodge durango

It seems that because the diagram for the fuse codes aren't located in the owners manual, it would be a dealer item only. One possible solution is to buy an assortment of fuses.. maybe (15) switch them out 1 by one.
