    Friday I come to my 15 challenger, put my fingers under the handle... nothing. The door doesn’t unlock. I the proceed to the passenger side door and it unlocks. ‘Talked to my friend at the dealership he said bring it to the dealership to run diagnostics on it. Could be a handle or a module. Sounds like a lot of money, has anyone else had this problem? Please help, I didn’t see anything on YouTube about this issue.

    Ive never heard of this issue and will be interested in hearing your outcome. Is your battery in the fob fairly new? Maybe try changing it before you take it in?

    My battery’s are fairly new, neither fobs is working the driver’s door But work the passenger door fine. When washing the car I can get the lights to flash when spraying water at the passenger side Handle but nothing to the driver side.


    I just spoke the dealership, they said probably a module in the door. Then has to be reprogrammed with both fobs. $300 $400 to do it
