UMM, as far as what dodge states I don't know, but I've walked out of a store with my truck parked in the back of the parking lot and it started. I'd say that was at least 75 to 100yrds away. Hope this helps...

this is from the 2010 owners manual should be the same on the 11
REMOTE STARTING SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED
This system uses the Remote Keyless Entry
(RKE) transmitter to start the engine conveniently
from outside the vehicle while still
maintaining security. The system has a range of
approximately 300 ft (91 m).
hope this helps

I can start mine from the train as it is pulling into the station at about 20-30mph, and the truck is about 50 yards from the tracks.

It really depends for me.

Sometimes when I'm in a parking lot and there are a lot of cars in the way it does not work until I'm pretty close. In that same parking lot EMPTY it works so much farther away.

Just Today I was at school and the remote start worked from about 150 yards from the truck because I was standing at the top of a hill above the parking lot.

So I think it depends on the angle, and what is in your way at the time.

I agree with the posts about "it depends". I can start mine from inside my home with the truck about 150 feet away. And I've started it with it about 80 yards way with a clear view. And finally, I've had it not respond closer than that in a parking lot like Jack mentioned.

It depends on how much emi or rfi that is around your vehicle when you try the remote start, I have had mine work from huge distances, and some times time kinda close.

Although my truck is fairly new (May 2010), I discovered that replacing the batteries in the RKE took mine from 'Completely inconsistent' to 'Oh Wow'.
Truck may be new....but the batteries in the RKE might not!

It depends. I can start mine from my bedroom at the back of my house while it's in the driveway, but when I'm at school I have to be about 30 feet from it to start
