    I don't know if it's worth mentioning, or if they all say this. But I noticed it said fobik inside if the case of the fob.
    I'm just soaking out loud at this point, lol

    I’d tell your dealer your having issues with it, like someone else said there was a recall on 2011 passive entry doors not working properly.

    Pretty sure it wasn't going to be the fobik battery, your EVIC would have given you a low battery message.
    You said you checked your EVIC ( apparently its also in u-connect touch settings) and the passive entry was not disabled.
    My guess is somebody ( did I see a GM dealership sign in your pic?) had the Fobik programmed to the WIN module, but didnt activate the PEM (passive entry module).
    A trip to your local Mopar dealership would be your best bet as I think a starscan tool is needed and you'll be good to go.
    p.s. Back in 2011 I think they shipped with the start button in a bag in the glove box , I know its been 6 yrs but you never know.(;
    Also when you get in does the EVIC show a message saying to start insert key or push button?
    Just for giggles have you tried pushing the start button with the square end of the fobik?

    Yes I bought the car from a gm dealership. They're about an hour and 40 minute drive from my house, so not exactly a quick trip to figure it out. The car didn't have the keyless n go button for the ignition when I bought it. It wasn't in the glove box either. I bought one, got it, installed it and get a damaged key message. I took the button back out..pressed the ignition with my finger same damaged key message.
    I'll try to see if there is passive entry options in the radio. I wouldn't know where to even look for that option. Evic says it's on.

    When you get the 2nd key from your GM dealership, go to nearest Mopar dealer and have them marry both keys to the (step1) WIN and (step2) PEM module and youll be good, assuming PEM and antennas are ok.

    Pull up history, as in service history?
    I'll wait for the 2nd key and fob to show up then go get it looked at by the Dodge dealer. Luckily they're only 20 mins away from me

    Got my keys from the dealer today. No extra fob. Just 2 key blades. I did get a funny looking key though. It has the rectangular end on it, along with the key blade itself. Is it a special key or something.

    I don't think those are any keys that came with the car. Pull the key out of the fobik and compare.
    Do any of the keys actually work in the driver's door?

    They all work in the door. And the one with the plastic end on it starts the car as well

    Made an appointment with the Dodge dealership for next week to have my car looked at. He thinks I need a new fob. But won't know till they scan it and see what the car is or isn't doing.
    I mentioned the push button for the starter that I got. And he told me that sometimes those buttons need programming as well (which I'm not exactly buying)

    The plastic push button is just that - a plastic push button. There's nothing about the button itself that needs to be programmed. If he starts handing you some line about programming the plastic button you should run like the wind to a different dealership and tell the other guy to go hose himself cuz you ain't bendin' over for that one.
