The Dodge Charger has a wireless key fob that allows you to lock and unlock the doors and even start the car without a key. This can sometimes be a problem if the battery in the key fob is low or dead. When this happens, the display on the instrument panel may display a message that say “No Remote Detected” or “Replace Battery in Remote Key“.

- Slide the switch in the top left, and pull out the silver key.
- Use the key to unlock the door. Then replace the key in the fob.
- With your foot on the brake, push the start button with the fob.
