Check all switches on doors (push-in button) located usually on door post, or in jamb area by hinges. Do 1 at a time with your door open & use your thumb or finger to push it in and see if interior lights go out immediately. Good chance one will be a little temperamental which will tell you which one is at fault. If there's one that you have to push in further than others before light goes out, that's more than likely the one causing the trouble.

Anti theft alarm going off every time we open door! car starts just fine,but alarm keeps going off for about 3 min, then stops until we open the door again.


Hi Yolanda, my name is Al I'm the owner of Big As Auto Repair, check us out at bigasautorepair.com Here is what most likely happened. When the tow truck driver opened the pass door with his tools, he most likely unhooked the alarm switch that hooks to the back of the door switch. If you know someone who can take off the pass door panel they can push the switch back onto the back of the door switch, provided he did not break the switch itself. In that case you'll need a new switch if it is broken, if it is not broken simply plug it back in and you should be fine. If you don't know anyone to remove the panel then go to my website and call me from the number on the website and I can guide you through the process. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Yolanda.

On most cars you can disarm the system by locking AND unlocking the drivers door with the key. Check your owners manual if you have one.

My factory alarm keeps going off on my 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT when I open the door with my key. The only way I can turn the alarm off is by unlocking the door from the inside.


I hope you solved your problem and this is a late answer so if it helps anyone then OK good. When the door is open look down on the inside trim where your door meets when it shuts. There is a rubber boot covering an activator switch. Simply remove the screw, pull the module out and unplug it. Whenever you open the door it will not activate the alarm. There is nothing in the door that activates the alarm; only when you open the door.

How do i disable the security alarm?


Serouly. If it's the same as my '05 Stratus R/T then look at where the doors shuts on the interior trim and look for a activator that stays closed when you shut the door. open it and unplug it. There you go. No more alarm set off when you open your door.
