Default 2012 ram key fob stuck

Have had numerous times not being able to remove fob from ignition after turning truck off. was told by my local Dodge dealer service manager this is a " NORMAL CONDITION" . The 2nd dealer i took it to said its a " COMMON PROBLEM". And yes i have paperwork stating this in writing. And before anyone states thisI have tried moving shift lever,also turning key on and off. I've seen on this board others having this problem. I recieved a call from a Jeff? from ram that was going to get this problem fixed. So it's been a2weeks since that call and still nothing. Now if they think when my lease expires next Feb. I WILL NOT BE BUYING A RAM. I will look at GM.

Yes it's normal to not be able to remove your key if the truck and / or kebfob battery is dead. Otherwise it is not normal. Not that I have read all of the posts on this forum but I don't recall reading any complaints about difficulty removing keyfobs other than from dead batteries.

I think the Service Advisers are trained to say
this is a " NORMAL CONDITION", when they Don't have a effin clue
( i can see the Chrysler Engineering Dept. sitting around the conference table saying, lets make a list of things that we can't fix & we will call them Normal Conditions, lets go to O'Malleys for steak & cocktails )

I would be ok with
its a " COMMON PROBLEM"., at least they are admitting that others have also complained

This happened to me once and I have not been able to simulate it again.
I don't know if it was something to do with my timing opening the door while turning the truck off or maybe undoing the seat belt at the same time but anyway when I turned the truck off I could not remove the key fob.
I tried turning the key to on and off, no go.
I tried starting the truck and turning it off again and still no go.
Last attempt I started the truck put it in drive and moved it a couple of feet forward and then when I turned it off the key came out as normal.
No idea what was going on.

That is the recommended thing to do when the Fob does not come out
restart the vehicle, shift it into any other position, then back to the Park position & remove the Fob
If it doesn't work, then you may have another issue, if you park on level ground
If you are parked on a hill, you may want to set your parking brake before putting it into the Park Position, as recommended in the Owners Manual

Yea it's the same w/ any auto ignition key switch. It's a safety sometimes if the vehicle has too much pressure on the parking pawl or the vehicle wasn't set on it's parking break or if the linkage is a bit out of adjustment you'll find this to be the end result. Nissan told my wife's friend on her 2010 maxima when it was new that it was normal just put your foot out the door & rock it, that should solve the issue! Talk about bull Sh$@! Any way it's a safety measure & in a world where you gotta have "caution Hot beverage" on a cup of coffee to let the person who bought it know they could burn themselves from the exact hot substance they ordered kinda says it all...
