No you may need a new battery, now its time to have your car jump to get it started

Run a voltage test on your battery, it needs at least 12.5 volts or greater, if not then it is possible you do need a new battery however on your vehicle you just can't take the battery out and replace it, doing so will corrupt the factory presets in the BCM then you can look forward to a tow to the dealer. If your battery voltage is good then try this: from the inside manually lock all the doors except the drivers, with key in hand exit the vehicle, close and manually lock the drivers door with the key, wait until the dome light goes out and then an additional minute, then unlock the drivers door with the key and attempt to start the engine, if it starts and runs then your good to go if not then you will have to get it towed to the Dodge dealer so they can reset the security system. This usually happens if there is a voltage loss, like removing the battery, or a voltage spike, and jumping another vehicle would be considered a voltage spike. That's why jump boxes are becoming so popular, jumping from late model vehicles causes damage to sensitive electronics and programming anymore.
