Default 97 1500 Electrical/RKE Issue

So, just bought a new to me '97 Ram 1500, only 85K miles, thrilled with the condition. But..

Whenever I try to use the RKE, every stinking light on the truck turns on, all the dash lights/gauges start flashing, truck won't start. I spam the button a few times and it will stop, truck starts fine. The interior switches for the power doors work, cycle the locks with no issue.

Any thoughts on where to start tracking my issue down and what might be wrong?
