2011 Dodge Ram 4x4 5.7 L starts on its own with out activation what is it?

Asked by GuruY2TLS Mar 29, 2018 at 01:10 AM about the 2010 Dodge RAM 1500 ST Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2011 Dodge started itself as I walked to the house. No key in the ignition and no I did not accidently press the remote start to my knowledge. Then turned the key on then off and the engine would not shut off.  I don't even see a remote start button on the fob. Is there a known problem with this? Can a weak key fob battery cause this. Truck has 111,000 miles on it

probably not the fob if it has no remote start on it, don't you think? There's a relay/fuse box under the hood, pop the lid off the top and find the start/run relay and tap on it. I'm guessin' it's stuck-sticking. Not likely a defective/ bad computer would do something like this.
