Dodge Charger 2011-2023 Owner's Manual / GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE / IGNITION SWITCH


This feature allows the driver to operate the ignition switch with the push of a button as long as the key fob is in the passenger compartment.

The START/STOP ignition button has four operating positions, three of which are labeled and will illuminate when in position. The three positions are OFF, ACC, and ON/RUN. The fourth position is START. During START, RUN will illuminate.


  1. OFF
  2. ACC
  3. ON/RUN

The push button ignition can be placed in the following modes:


  • The engine is stopped.
  • Some electrical devices (e.g. central locking, alarm, etc.) are still available.


  • Engine is not started.
  • Some electrical devices are available (e.g. power windows).


  • Driving position.
  • All electrical devices are available (e.g. climate controls, etc.).


  • The engine will start (when foot is on the brake pedal).


If the ignition switch does not change the mode by pushing the button, the key fob may have a low or depleted battery. In this situation, a back up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the key fob against the START/STOP ignition button and push to operate the ignition switch.



  • When exiting the vehicle, always remove the key fob from the vehicle and lock your vehicle.
  • Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
  • Allowing children to be in a vehicle unat- tended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the gear selector.
  • Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to chil- dren, and do not leave the Keyless Enter-N-Go Ignition in the ON/RUN position. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
  • Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build-up may cause serious injury or death.


An unlocked vehicle is an invitation for thieves. Always remove key fob from the vehicle and lock all doors when leaving the vehicle unattended.


  • When opening the driver's door with the igni- tion in ON/RUN (engine not running), a chime will sound to remind you to place the ignition in the OFF position. In addition to the chime, the message will display “Ignition Or Acces- sory On” in the cluster.
