The other day I had to jump my friends car, while the truck was on during the jump my radio was working fine(stock CD player unit) I then shut the truck off, pulled the jumper cables off and put them away.
After turning the truck back on to leave the radio no longer worked, I can push the volume knob inwards and the clock will display for a few seconds but that's it. I tried pushing every button on the cd player, turning the ignition on/off a few times, and putting the ignition to accessory mode. I also pulled the radio out, unhooked the wire harness etc and re-connected it, still same issue.
I checked every fuse under the dash, nothing is blown(including the fuses with the retainers)
My truck didnt come with a key fob for keyless entry, as I was told it didn't have that option.
But after doing some research I found this website Dodge Ram RKE procedures
There it says
"Rolling Door Lock - Optional.
This feature is only available on vehicles equipped with Remote Keyless Entry. When this feature is enabled your door lock, will lock automatically if the speed is above 15 mph and both doors have been closed for the past 5 seconds. This feature is shipped enabled, but can be disabled you using the following procedure..."
However this is for a 2001, my truck is a 2002, but it does have the Rolling Door Lock feature, its currently enabled... Not sure if there is a factory alarm or something not allowing the radio to turn on. Also does this mean I have keyless entry and could go to the dealer and purchase a key fob?
I also would like to know if there are any programming features for my truck and how to change them, example would be radio staying on after ignition off but turns off when door opens, doors unlock when key is turned to off position...etc
Help would be appreciated, I need me some radio
