Often alarms have a second battery. They you this to sound the alarm in case someone disconnects the main battery.

If the main battery voltage drops very low then the alarm may go off because it thinks the main battery has been disconnected.

If you had to jump the car and you did not leave the lights of or something then your battery may be worn out. You could try replacing this first.

It could also be a problem with your alternator. If you get a cheap multi meter you can easily test it. Set it to measure DC volts. With the car running measure the voltage at the battery. Give it a rev and you should see the volts go up to between 13 and 14 volts. If it does not change then you have a problem with your alternator. It could be other things but you probably need to see an auto electrician if you don't know about this kind of thing.

Hope this helps.

sounds like you need a new battery, also have the alternater checked. as far as the alarm, you should be able to disarm the system by locking and unlocking the passengers door, then the drivers door with the key, when the door are closed

sounds like the alarm was set and when you opened the trunk it activated the alarm system, seems you got no sound though.
you can go to the drivers door, lock the car up even when the trunk open, then unlock it might have to do it several times. this will reset the alarm

I have a 1889 dodge dynasty it starts and runs a few secands and turns off it restarts and the same thang happins it started this after the battery went bad could this be a securty prob


The alarm system, which is activated by hitting the auto-lock button, causes the battery to drain if set off. A pretty good deterrent for theft, but definitely not a owner-friendly feature.

You'll know that the alarm was triggered if, upon (your sad attempts at) starting the 1989 Dodge Dynasty, the "Alarm" signal to the left of the steering column flashes. It normally would flash a certain number of times, to denote "Alarm Set Off! I have drained the battery power in the name of Security!" But usually you battery will die first.

The only way TO FIX THIS PROBLEM: exit the vehicle. Place the key in the driver's side door. Turn the key once to the left (counterclockwise) to lock it. Then turn it to the right to unlock it and open the door. Enter the vehicle. Start the car.

You may have to try this a few times in order to be successful. If your battery has been toasted by these attempts (sometimes the horn will honk and headlamps light up and flash for added battery-drain quickness!) you may need a jump.

To PREVENT THIS STUPID STARTER/ALARM PROBLEM: Simply use your hand to lock the door. Do not push the electronic auto-lock button.

Car died and now alarm will not turn off.


manually lock and unlock the driver door with the key. ( i have the same problem) I think its a fuse problem, because if I keep locking and unlocking the car will finally give in and unlock. try opening and closing the door while doing this too.. it seems to work for me.
