My wife and I were leaving the store earlier. I remotely started my 2008 Ram and unlocked the car for her to go ahead of me and open the doors. I then gave her the key to put in the ignition and turn on. After realizing that I could not open the rear driver-side window I asked her to step on the brake and put the truck in gear so that the truck had all power on. I was then able to open the window. I left that store and went to the next stop, about a 10 minute drive.... The red security light was on, and stayed solid, as was my TPMS (it started by flashing and then went solid). When I got to the next stop I noticed that I could not lock the truck with my fob.....weird I thought. So I got back in the truck and tried to start it....no such luck.
To this point the alarm never sounded, and every time I tried to turn the truck over the security light stayed solid. I decided to sit in the truck and open the door, lock it and then shut it.... New symptom....the light went from solid after 3 seconds and then began to flash. I waited 15 minuted and still no luck (15 minutes per the owners manual) It has not stopped flashing and every time I open the door the alarm sounds!!!!!
Since the truck is still under warranty I called to have Dodge tow it. Before I actually deal with the stealership I am curious if there is a way to fix this problem on my own. Any known fixes would be greatly appreciated.
