Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1198 Dodge Ram Pickup

I have a keyless entry alarm that works sporadically at best. I can't find cut off switch for alarm ( ther's a toggle under driver side dash but it didn't stop the alarm when I pushed it). Is tis the valet switch? Do I have to go through particular sequence to disarm? Any other viable approaches to disarm the alarm?

It sounds like you may have an aftermarket alarm system. it can be removed completely from the vehicle. if it is a factory system the key fob or unlocking the door wit the key should disarm the system. if they dont you may want to have a dealer or reputable shop check the system

How do i set car alarm

turn key to on position, just before it turns over. Within 5 seconds press and hold in the valet/overide button found under the dash area
until the blinking light in your dash area goes off and the siren chirps twice. If you have the toggle type, do the same but toggle on after turning key, then turn key off. This should reset the alarm. Repeating these steps places the vehicle back in valet mode. If you don't have the valet switch, you don't have an alarm. I don't seem to remember the 99 explorer having an alarm, and it does not show up in my manuals, only keyless entry.

1997 chrysler cirrus alarm was set off. reset alarm with key and keyless entry but still no responce. the starter doesn't even click. checked all fuses, all good. toggled the valet system too, and no...

sounds like an aftermarket alarm. if it is the try to remove the fuses from the unit. they will be located under the dash. if its a chrysler factory alarm try disconnecting the battery and let it sit for 5 minutes or so. that should reset everything

Just bought a 1998 Dodge Ram Sport pickup, two keyless entry units came with it. They do not function, replaced the batterise in them they still do not function, how do I get them to work?

take your truck to dealer and have them enable keyless entry if your truck is equipped with it,or one other thing is to check your owners manual to see how to reprogam the units when batteries are replaced

Security light flash no security system on truck

sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

Cost of redoing keyless entry

If you need to purchase new remotes, it would be around $120-140 depending upon the labor rate at the dealership. If you already have the remotes and just need them programmed, it can be done for under $75 as it will only take about half an hour at the dealership.

How do i disable alarm for my 1996 thunderbird lx 4.6

Ok, try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, press and hold in the valet/overide
button, found under the dash area in most cases,
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area comes on solid.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type.
in this case, key on, flip switch in oposite direction,
key off.)

This should be valet. This overides
the starter kill relay in the alarm harness,
and returns the car back to disarmed mode.

The only thing that will work now on your system,
is the keyless entry if installed.

Just Repeat these steps to rearm your system.
