Hey all,

Hoping someone could help me out with this very annoying problem.

Got in the RT this afternoon, and the first thing I saw was the KEY FOB NOT DETECTED notice on the dash. That was strange, since I had used the fob to open the doors. I tried to start the car, but it would not let me depress the break, with that same message repeating over and over. As well as the REMOTE START ABORTED a few times.

I then used the back-end of the key fob to press tHE START button, and that's when all this crazy stuff started. The dashboard started displaying writing in German, the windshield wipers went off, but VERY WEAKLY, they couldn't make it across the windshield, the alarm went off kind of half-assed for a few minutes, and then the car just completely died.

I've tried the spare fob and replacing the fob batteries, but no luck. Is the battery dead? Did the car shut off as a security measure? Did the thing that recognizes the keyless entry system break down?

PLEASE HELP!

THANKS

Try giving your car a jump start as well as check your battery connections.
