Question about Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

I just replaced the battery in my 2010 dodge avenger and now the blue light (Which I assume is the factory security or anti-theft) is blinking rapidly and I am afraid thats what drained my old battery to begin with. Is there something wrong with my anti-theft?

Some anti-theft systems need to be reset after the battery has died and/or been replaced. Check your driver's handbook for more information on this.

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

SOURCE: anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo

I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.

Flashing red light on 2008 dodge avenger and car does nothing when i turn the key


Security system does not recognize the key. Try locking the car and then unlocking with the key in the driver's door lock. If that doesn't work, try what these guys say in the link below.

HOW DO I DIS ENGAGE THE SECURITY FEATURE ANTI THEFT MODE 2010 AVENGER


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.

The anti theft light flashes intermittently when I remove the key on my 2014 dodge avenger. What is the cause?


I think that's to show you that the anti-theft system is active. It's supposed to do that.

Need to reset the anti-theft system on a 2010 Dodge Avenger.


the only things ive heard is if you insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on position and leave it for ten min that might reset it or you can try reseting the whole computer by turning the key to on and unhooking the neg battery cable then the pos cable then holding the breaks down or the horn down to drain the remaing juice the engine holds even after the battery is diconnected leave it unhooked with the key turned to on for about 15 min then turn the key off and hook the battery back up see if that works bud!

Replace the battery in the remote, then reset the system.

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.
