I know mine is thick & GREY on the end... So if you have a THICK GREY KEY then its most likely chipped!

SPEED SAFE, AIR RAM

DODGE manufactured after 1998 then you probably have a RFID SENTRY COMPUTER CHIP TRANSPONDER KEY. This includes the Stratus, Caravan, Intrepid, Magnum, Durango, Neon, Dakota and, Ram Trucks.

My key for my 2005 has the exact shape as the one above, except it is black, and no chip. So if the key is black, it has no chip, if it is gray, it has the chip.

Water doesn't hurt a "chipped" key....I dropped mine in the toilet once and it still worked..LMAO!! After the dunk in the toilet it got about a 5 minute bath in scalding hot water so I'm thinkin' their pretty much water proof!!
