Key fobs let you lock and unlock your car doors remotely, eliminating the need to physically unlock or lock your car in the rain or in the dark. Unfortunately, with technology occasionally come problems. If you find that the key fob to your Chrysler is having trouble, not working or just broken, you'll have to have it repaired.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Call a Chrysler vehicle dealership and ask to speak with someone in the maintenance department.

  2. 2

    Explain in as much detail as you can the problem you are having with your Chrysler's key fob. For example, if your key fob works only to unlock your doors but not to lock them, explain that this is your issue.

  3. 3

    Replace the battery. According to Chrysler, the most common problem with key fobs is simple: the battery is dead. You can pick up a battery from an auto parts store by giving the clerk the year, make and model of your car. Chrysler mechanics recommend picking one up and using a knife to pry apart the two pieces of your key fob, exchange the old battery for the new battery and trying your remote. If your remote still does not work, make an appointment to take it to Chrysler.

  4. 4

    Take your key fob to the Chrysler dealership -- if applicable -- and pay for the repair once your fob is fixed or your fob is deemed irreparable and you have to order a new one.
