Default

my '09 came with 2 FOBs or FOBIKs

it has a PANIC button
a Remote Unlock button
a Remote Lock button
a Remote START button

then there is what they call a VALET key inside the FOB
it is for unlocking the drivers side front door & a locking tailgate IF yours has one

my RAM came with 2 identical FOBS, both have the Valet key

__________________________________________________ _

just a note
IF you ever have to replace a FOB, because it is lost or broken
you have 2 choices
you can get one that reads RAM on the back of the FOB
or you get one that reads DODGE on the back of the FOB
the one that reads DODGE, is quite a bit cheaper than the one that reads RAM

they are identical in EVERY way, except for the wording

i now have 3 of the FOBS, i thought i had lost one, but i found it again after several months

Next time i would purchase a Brand New FOB through IKEYLESS & have the dealership program it

there is also what is called a TRANSPONDER KEY
i believe that it will also work for starting

i am not sure how you would go about shutting off the ALARM system, if you have one
maybe it shuts off itself when the vehicle is started
