Press and release the LOCK or UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter to lock and unlock all doors, the tailgate and the RamBox (if equipped). Refer to "Remote Keyless Entry" for further details. The RamBox storage bins can be locked using the vehicle key. To lock and unlock the storage bin, insert the key into the keyhole on the pushbutton and turn clockwise to lock or counterclockwise to unlock. Always return the key to the upright (vertical) position before removing the key from the pushbutton.


  • Ensure cargo bin lids are closed and latched before moving or driving vehicle.
  • Loads applied to the top of the bin lid should be minimized to prevent damage to the lid and latching/hinging mechanisms.
  • Damage to the RamBox bin may occur due to heavy/sharp objects placed in bin that shift due to vehicle motion. In order to minimize potential for damage, secure all cargo to prevent movement and protect inside surfaces of bin from heavy/sharp objects with appropriate padding.
