We're lost and don't know what to do.

Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 10:30 PM about the 2007 Dodge Charger Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We started our 07 2.7 v6  charger up and it idled
for a few seconds and died so we did it a few more
time and then nothing happened after that so I
unhooked the battery , tried boosting it , looked at
fuses, then we noticed a round flashing red light in
the dash. Somehow the panic button got set and
sounded off  we had to unhook battery to get it to
stop. The key fob hasn't worked  in for ever  so
now we are just lost on what to do. Please
someone with experience help us out.

Try running the security disarm procedure in the owners manual, and sometimes the drivers door won't work so you have to use the passenger door if that doesn't work then it has to go to the dealer and have the system reflashed with new software for the vehicles Vin. You have to becareful about disconnecting the battery as it can foul up the BCM and if the dealer can't restore it then your have to replace it, pricey.


Why would you unhook the battery to boost start it?
