My 2008 dodge charger will not start suddenly. I had a very flawed FOB key, I went to turn on the car and it wouldn't turn over. After a few attempts I decided it was the key that was the issues.

Asked by Jul 05, 2014 at 04:57 PM about the 2008 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Call the lock smith to replace my
FOB key. He explained that it was an
ignition problem and that it was a
anti theft feature in the car because I
tried to turn it on too many times with
a bum key.  The key works with the
doors and the lights come on. My
dash indicators showed a check
engine light and a red dot next to it.
He wants to charge me $600 to fix it.
I feel I'm being scammed because
I'm a woman and that the issues is
greater than he explained. What
should I do? Is this legit? Any
suggest word of the wise will help.
Thank you

Red light is the Sentry Key Immobilizer System error. I'd take the car to a Dodge dealer and have them reset the system for you. Probably a lot Cheaper than $600.
