Dodge Repair/'05 Durango: CD player, key fob remote


Hello, I have a 2005 Dodge Durango and a few days ago my battery died. Well I put a new one in and now that I've put the new one in. My CD won't work, but my radio does just fine. And also my buttons on my car key won't work. I took it back to the dealership where I got it and they said that they didn't know what to do for it so I was hoping I could find some luck on here! Thanks!

Hi Karen,
Given that history my suggestion would be to check fuse #11 for the CD, and #14 and #18 for the remote key fob, all those fuses in the box under the dash. Thanks so much for the rating and the nomination. You are entitled to do that again if you would be so kind.
PS Have you considered changing the battery on the remote key fob?
