FOB issues

Does anyone know what to do if my remote will not lock , unlock or remote start the car? If I am in the vehicle, my fob starts the car with the start button only. It’s not the battery either since my back up does not work either.

Have you already verified it's not the battery by putting in a new one?

They have had problems with these. There is a flash update....fixed mine for one day....they ended up replacing both fobs. They said sometimes the controller goes bad too.

If the ethanol is the light end of the fuel, maybe we could have a metal pot sitting over an open fire, and pour gas in the pot and let the fire heat it up until the ethanol cooks off

I, like many, had a key fob issue when my 2009 Challenger was new. Basically, it just stopped working and I had to start my car by inserting and turning the fob key. A flash by the dealer permanently corrected the problem.
