Help Me Please- Car Won't Start

I recently bought a 2010 Challenger and it has a few problems but that's how I got such a good deal on it, so it started with the other day the fuse blew to my key fob..so I broke into my car and replaced the fuse then today I go to start it and it won't turn over. Something about the anti- theft system. I tried a few videos I found on YouTube but none of them worked.. can someone help me please?

Another member had an issue where his battery died and he could not start his car after replacing it with a new one. It sounded like the WINN module was corrupt, anyways it might be a good place to start.

Do you know what caused that fuse to blow? Fuses don't blow for no reason, and just because you install a new one and it does not blow again does not mean the electrical problem went away. Here is a PDF that walks you through some checks of the electrical system for proper power/ground.

Also have you tried what @jar pikok described in his last post in the link provided? Seems like he was able to start the car but the fob no longer worked. You could also try reaching out to him to see if he resolved his problem.

Try starting the car by inserting it in the push start button. If you turn the key to ignition what happens...do the dash lights turn on, do you hear a chime, do you hear the fuel pump?

BTW have you checked to see if your car was part of the alternator recall, and if so was the alternator replaced?

Here is another member that had a no start issue, but no resolution.

Have you check for any codes? I think on your 2010 there is an OBD self diagnostic that flashes any stored code on the odometer if you turn the key to ignition-off-ignition on-off-ignition on.

"broke in" - how did you do this? The '10 cars have a key for the door in the fob. If the fob now works lock and unlock with the fob, it may reset the alarm system. Have you tried popping the push button out, inserting the fob and turning it to start? Also try unhook the battery for a few minutes and reconnect it.

Flowmaster Force II cat back, K&N branded CAI with Amsoil dry synthetic filter, Diablo Predator 91 CAI tune,
Mopar '11+ IAT sensor, Mopar hood struts, RPI stealth guards, R/T spoiler emblem

Yup, these are things I have suggested but have yet to hear from the OP as to what he has tried. The last member that had something similar happen never updated his progress...nor have others. The ones that have updated basically traded in the car. I really don't understand why people cannot provide closure? I see way too many requests for help for a particular problem only for the thread to go cold....where is Phil Connors when you need him?
