If my passenger door is opened and shut while the car is off it sets off my security system and if I do not deactivate it in time it will disable my ignition. Why would the passenger door set it off?...

most vehicles with passive alarms- unless you unlock with key fob go into security mode- the vehicle it cant tell the difference if u unlock with key or with a slim jim so it will activate security system thats why you have to insert key into ignition or use key fob to shut off or reset unit and the system is active on all doors {both or 4dr}

Do you have to have a security key for the ignition on a 1998 dodge dakota

For the 1998 the system it was called VTSS (vehicle theft security system) the activation and deactivation is in the door switch. So inside the driver and passenger door lock switch was the trigger.To deactivate use the door switch (there is no key immobilizer ,it wasnot invented yet)

Cart will not start untill security light goes. I don't have any means to activate/deactivate security system

Depending on the year, make, and model, this link should help you out. The security light only comes on if you are using the wrong key, trying to hotwire the car, or the system is failing. Most likely the system is failing..... There is no reset button or deactivation of these systems, the problem must fixed or bypassed. I've had great luck with just bypassing the system entirely. These systems are known to fail and cost up to 1000 bucks to fix. Trust me on this. Bypass it. You can fix this yourself. Read about it on this link

I have a 2002 chevy 2500 hd and the security light is on

If the owners manual doesn't tell you the procedures to deactivate the anti-theft module, you might have to call the GM dealership and ask the service department how to deactivate the anti-theft module. I think it's key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" and then wait for 20 minutes then try to start the engine. Good luck, Gary
