Check that all screws have been removed from door. Hidden screws often found behind reflectors in door. Use prying tool and gently pull bottom of door panel away from doorm on/in door handle and near mirrow within door jam. Lay on the ground and look between the door and panle. You can usually see the plastic clips holding the door in place. Once bottom is loose you should be able to lift the door up and off of the door. Watch for power window and lock wires when removing. If manual windows, slide a rag behind window crank and move back and forth to remoce clip which holds crank on.

You can't disable it. Newer Dodges have chips in the key. Older Dodges you could lock the car down and open the door with the key to disarm the alarm. Try both doors. The latch sensor in one door could be broken. If still no luck, you'll have to get it on a scanner to read codes. Code readers don't read security codes.
maybe dealer or salvage yard . have u chrcked w/auto part stores for it. take door panel off an it bolts on to the door it have a rod for door locks & door latch just look how they go before taking off
yes remove the panel, unhook the linkage one for the lock and one for the latch remove linkage from the handle not the latch, then remove blots holding handle then remove handle from outside the door, you will have to swap the lock to the new handle and then install new handle.
We purchased a door latch to replace ours from Dodge. It came with instructions as follows:
Front Door Handle/Bezel Replacement for LH
1. Remove the front door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.
2. Place door trim panel on a clean work surface. Drill the mounting bosses' heat stakes, which attach the existing door handle/bezel to the panel, with a 21/64-drill bit. Take extra care to only drill in the center of each heat stake.
3. Remove existing handle/bezel from trim panel.
4. Clean the back of the trim panel of plastic fillings.
5. Seat the new handle/bezel into location.
6. Place the push nuts onto the handle/bezel bosses.
7. Use a 10 mm socket to install the push nuts all the way down on the mounting bosses to secure the handle/bezel onto the door trim panel. Using a wiggling side-to-side motion may be helpful.
8. Install the lock switch from the original handle/bezel to the new door handle/bezel.
9. Reinstall the door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.
After you have removed the screws (one behind the door handle, you will see a little tab, pull it back to expose the screw) lift the panel and look behind it, there you will see (2) rods going to the door handle and lock. Use a small screw driver to pry the keepers away very gently. Pull the rods away from the keepers. Also, you may want to remove the panels from the arm rest and disconnect the wires from the control panel. I just replaced the window regulator for the second time.
door panel is holding by dozen plastic push pins.
strat from the button. use a screw driver or putty knife. pull the panel towards you. be careful not to damage the push pins. go around the panel toward the door hinger then the otheer direction toward the lock.once you have panel seperated from the door. push up the panel to clear the glass. (it is easier if the window is all the way down). pull back the plastic (don't destory it). you need to put that back later. now can get access to the galss and what ever else you are looking for.
29 cent part my fix your problem. There is a nipple on the interior door lock lever that fits into a slot on the door handle lever. Look at passenger side to compare. The nipple is covered with a plastic spacer that may come off. The spacer keeps the lock nipple snug in the handle lever slot; pull the handle lever, it engages the lock lever, opening door. I bought a .29 cent aluminum spacer (#8x1/4 x 1/4) from Orchard hardware. Take needle nose pliers and slip the spacer on, then super glue. Unfortunately if lock lever (where riveted) is badly worn, then it may pivot upward instead of perpendicular to the door, thus defeating new spacer. But you may now be able to open door by pulling handle lever and lock lever at the same time. If you need to replace door handle, others on this site have suggested that you not replace metal frame that door handle is mounted on, but drill out rivets that hold door handle mount.

Install the armrest/door pulls, the courtesy light and the window switch' 9. Reconnect the battery
Also. You will need star pattern drivers to remove the window and motor from your door. If you have all the equipment it should only take you 1 hour.
