Key Fob Locks, but doesnt Unlock

Asked by Dec 14, 2015 at 12:12 PM about the 2010 Dodge Journey SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Today when i tried to open my Journey, the Remote didnt work to open it. I tried many times, and nothing. If i press the lock button, lights blink alarm arms. But when i press the UNlock button nothing happens.
I trired the spare remote and same happens.

I had to enter into the car, using the phisical key, and the Alarm started.... 6:00am :(
from the buttons inside the car i can lock and unlock without any problem.

Only the Remotes are givinme this problem

Sounds like the fobs need to be reprogrammed. I'm not an expert, but I had the same issue with a Chrysler Town and Country. I took the fobs in and they reprogrammed them. Not sure what process they have to go through, but that is most likely your best solution. You could check the fob's batteries for giggles, but since you have some functionality with the fob, this probably isn't it. Good luck!
