Default Starting issues

Hello. Just purchased a 2007 slt quad cab with the hemi last week. The spare key that came with it is like a walmart type key with no chip or functions on it. Wife tried to start with it and it only runs for a second or so and shuts off. Other key with panic button and door lock/unlock seems to work fine. Is this just a key issue with the spare not having chip or something else. Why would the spare key start truck but still die after few seconds. Any info would be great thanks

S.C. Express will become famous soon enough

I don't know why, but Dodge gave two extra keys on top of two ignition keys. The two extra are only good for the doors and tail gate.
