Key problem

I have a 2007 Dodge Nitro and the spare key will turn the vehicle on but the vehicle only runs about 5 to 10 seconds. The original key works fine. Can I reprogram the key myself or do I take it to the dealer? What is the cost?

Instead of doing any experiment, and make both the key useless. I suggest you to take it to dealer. It will cost around $230

Welcome! Do you have an Owner's Manual for your Nitro? If so just turn to page 15 and it should answer all your questions. Sure your Dealer can do it but why? "Customer Key Programing Procedure" You can order blank keys that require being cut "On-Line" cheaply,too. Good Luck!

Keys

Hello all new to this site as of today. Just got a 07 Nitro used from used car dealer today. Looked it over for about 2hrs before we decided to buy. Drives ok but has those off-road tires all terrains that I hate. thing is I need to get some help on a few things. This is the first vehicle that I have bought that has no literature in the glove box. NONE. So I need some on it. I know that its all base has the 3.7 in it but from there that's it. BASE. Also I need to know if the keys for these sport utes are or have a chip. OH got one stinking key. No fob just a light tan looking thing that starts the engine and unlocks the door. Dealer says he will order me a new one. 1 (one). Can I get the ones on ebay and program them myself? If so is there a link to this procedure on this forum? I can say that its an ok vehicle but I'm getting off to a slow start. And knowledgeable help will work right now. thank you for your time I am sure I will return soon.

Welcome Silver_Box

This Link for a free Download of the Factory Owners Manual should help you get started. Get that free remote from your Dealer since they are expensive and pick another one up "Online" at a much lower price that from the Parts Department.

Hope this helps and look around to answer many of your other questions!

Good Luck!

Rick thank you for that help with the manual that was what I was looking for. Now the key on the other hand the dealer lost their minds. $195 for the for and $60 to program. NO. found them on ebay going to order them there and program myself. I do have one question have you seen these and if so do they work well?

I bought a programed key "Online" several years ago for another vehicle and it worked just fine at a considerable savings. Most Ebay purchases now have a guarantee. Go for it and Good Luck!

UK Owner needs to find parts and a new key

Hi,
I live in Bucks in the U.K and I cannot find anywhere that I can buy parts from. Also, I only have one key and cannot find out how I go about getting a second. Can anyone help me? It seems all the dodge dealerships have closed!
