Door Handle Recall...Question

Called dealer today, handles ordered, bringing mine in for replacement as soon as they come in. Do key fobs have to be re-synched to new handles? Curious if I should bring both fobs with me.

I just received my notice in the mail but heres my dilemma, mine work fine, should i take it back anyway and have the service morons touch it? I realize they are trained and evrything but after I saw one do a 30 FT hole shot after servicing a 392, i hate to even let them touch mine. Is it for sure that in time the original ones will fail? Does anyone know. Thanks

I feel the same way, but supposedly there is also a chance of it unlocking vehicle after you lock it, which is not a good thing! That and the fact that if you don't do it now that it's an official recall, & something does happen, it'll be YOUR liability, not Chrysler. So, yes, I'm bringing mine in tomorrow.

My dealer just did mine on Tuesday, and they did not require both fobs... so I assume its not part of the swap.

the only time keys need to be reprogrammed is when the wireless control module is programmed or replaced
