I know that with my Ancient 2009 Ram
I have to insert my FOB into the ignition to Start & Run it
in the Fob there is a battery & small printed circuit board with a Memory Chip
On the big end of the FOB, there is a little slider that holds the SENTRY Key in place
The Sentry Key can be used in my Drivers side door & Tailgate Locking mechanism

with this type of setup, some people were breaking off the tip of the FOB, i believe that was in the 2008 & earlier models
a person had to get the broken piece out of the ignition switch & use their spare fob, if they had one handy, i heard that if it was not handy, there is another way to get the Ram started, you could take something like a popsicle stick or a small finger & push the wire in there forward & then turn the switch to the start/run position, the broken FOB had to be close to the switch

I believe that there is another type of key that can be used in place of the FOB, i have not seen one in person, i will see if i can find it online
