2012 Dodge Durango - Truck plays dead?!!?

Asked by Jun 25, 2018 at 07:28 PM about the 2012 Dodge Durango

Question type: General

Hi there! So...about a month ago I walked out to leave
home and my truck was dead. It did not respond to my key
fob and once I got the door open nothing worked.  Fob in
ignition and nothing. Then the fob was stuck. Got it out, got
a ride to work. Came home and truck responded to fob and
turned on like nothing ever happened. BF insisted battery
was dead so I took it to O'Reilly's to be tested. Kid said
battery was weak. Bought new battery and installed it.
Here we are a few weeks later and I am leaving work and
again my truck is playing dead. I finally pried the key out of
the fob and opened door just like before. Nothing. No lights
came on just nothing. I still stuck the fob in and tried to turn
truck on. Nothing at all. Then the fob was stuck! I kept
trying to get it out and it wasn't budging. I decided to try
and google how to get the fob unstuck and while I was
sitting in my truck on my phone all of a sudden the lights
and stereo turned on...  I turned the fob and truck turned on
just fine. Anyone else had an experience with a "possessed"
truck like mine?  no but seriously anyone have any clue
as to what may be going on?
