Hey all. I have owned my 2005 magnum RT for a year now and I love it. Glad to have found this forum ordering from carid. Recently my dash started showing rke battery low the it wouldn't start. I changed the the battery in my key and it still wouldnt start but started when I got a jump. Next day wouldn't start so I got jump and drove to get my battery checked. They say my battery is good so does anyone know what the problem could be?

Who said your battery is good and how did they check it? Try using another battery. Sounds like your battery needs to be replaced.

The battery light on your dash is an indicator for the car's battery, not the key's battery. Sounds like you need a new car battery.

Sounds like car battery time!!!!!

The car battery was tested? How? testing with a volt meter may tell you it has 12 volts but it will not tell you if it has the capacity... you need a load tester for that.. but if a jump starts you right up, you have a bad battery....

RKE low is remote keyless entry battery low.

sounds like you have a bad Alternator or a loose or bad negative connection. you get a jump, the car runs, but the battery never charges. so next time you try to start it, you'll get nothing.
