2015 Dodge Ram Key Fobs No Good

Asked by Feb 07, 2018 at 03:26 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My husband has 2 key fobs for his truck. BOTH died at the same time, and it is
not the battery (batteries have been changed). The dealer says that BOTH fobs
are bad and we need to spend $360 to replace each fob. The truck is only 2 1/2
years old. How could both fobs go bad at the same time? Has anyone else had
this issue?

If the batteries are good and does not need a simple reprogram,then the fobs will need to be replaced.

Never seen both go bad at the same time, usually its something to do with the receiver, unfortunately not many independent shops can diagnosis this system so they are stuck with the dealer, you might try a good locksmith, some of the smart ones have bought the equipment to reprogram the security systems to match the Keys and Fobs they sell, either way its not going to be cheap but you might catch a break if a locksmith can do it.
