    dess post question

    Had problems all weekend with my 2006 rxp starting. I would wiggle play with post to get it started. Took a lot to get it started. Once started had no problems running and staying on, but finally gave out and would not start. No more beeps just sometimes a quick gauge swipe.

    My question is can I just replace the post which is 3 wires and does it need to be programmed? Or do you do you guys think it's the key? I tried the spare key and same thing. Anyone selling a post let me know. Thanks for you help

    You can replace it ive done it. I dont remember how much it cost but wasnt hard. Just be careful taking the nut off, mine broke. Have you tried to clean the connections?

    Yes, have tried to clean them. A few times..just as the weekend went by got worse then failed. I will just change it. Just wanted to make sure I didn't need reprogramming.

    No programming needed. The security is handled by the key and the cpu. The post is just a connector.

    Those posts fail with age. Replacement is not too bad.

    Yes same result. Just brought it home and noticing the gauges swiping every 10 seconds or so without the key on. Any ideas? Like I said it runs fine was just having problems starting with the key post
