Default Need spare FOBIK

I am trying to find a spare FOBIK (the pear-shaped one) to buy for my 2014 Express. I need the 3-button (lock, unlock, panic) pear-shaped one with the Ram logo on the back.

I've found some on EBay, but they either have too many buttons, or don't show RAM on the back.

Anyone?

First thing that you should know, most ebay FOBs have been previously used
you need a unused FOB
If it reads unused, unopened, new in package, it is likely ok

once you get a new FOB, it will have to be taken to a dealership to be programmed
UNLESS you have 2 working FOBs in your possession, then you can program it yourself

Go the this site, you may not see the correct FOB in the pictures, but if you contact the company, they should have the correct FOB
read what they say about used FOBs while you are on the site

https://ikeyless.com/?gclid=CKHvvMe74LsCFeZ7Qgod3k4Aew

this may be all that they currently have in stock for 2014 Rams
https://ikeyless.com/vehicles/Dodge/.../2014/1004576/

I went to my dealership parts dept. & was told that there are 2 FOBs that work in my Ram, the difference is the word on the FOB
One reads RAM & the other reads DODGE, both are identical except for the brand name
the DODGE FOB was quite a bit cheaper at the dealership
I now have 3 FOBS & they all work, 1 reads Dodge & the other 2 read RAM

Another thing that may work is called a TRANSPONDER KEY, it does have a CHIP inside of the key & it is much thinner then a FOB
it is also much cheaper then a FOB
this is the one for my 2009
Uncut Transponder Key https://ikeyless.com/vehicles/Dodge/.../2009/1001555/

GTyankee, thanks for the info. I am familiar with how these things work, I have already created a third FOBIK for our Challenger.

Anyhoo. The only link that displays the right FOBIK is the last one, but they want $129 for it (paid $65 for the one for our Challenger).

The company in the first link charges similar prices. Might as well get one at the dealer...

Guess I'll keep looking.
