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!

This van has the anti-theift component.....we go to town to the store lock it, go shopping we we re-enter the van it wont start a mechanic said it was the main computer gone bad what do you say?

i say the antitheft system probably was triggered when that happens it either wont let the vehicle start at all or it"ll start bt only run for 2 seconds try putting the key in and turning it to on and leaving it for ten to fifteen min if that dont work try reseting the computer by leaving the key in the ignition in the on position and first unhooking the neg battery cable then the pos cable then hold down breaks or horn to drain remaining charge all vehicles store even after battery is unhooked and leaving it for 15 to 20 min then take the key out and hook the battery back up and try an start it

Is there a computer rest button on a 2011 dodge avenger

no but if you leave the key on and unhook the battery then hold down either the horn or breaks to get the remaining charge all cars store even after the battery is unhooked to drain away when either the break lights stop lighting up or the horn stops blowing leave it unhooked with the key on for ten to fifteen min then take the key out and hook the battery back up that should reset it

Going down the road runs great then starts loosing charge sit awhile and push off runs great. put new altenater on it i can reve motor up if running lights and starts running good

Either have a bad battery, sometimes they go bad and the symptom is a "self" discharge that will run it down in a few days..
You have something inside the car that's running it down.

The way to check is to unhook the battery for the time that its down and see if the battery is dead when you return. If the battery goes flat unhooked, you have a bad battery. If the battey holds its charge while unhooked you have a drain from the car.

Your car I think was bad about one of the cooling fan relays sticking "on". Just something to be aware of.

The security on my 1993 Grand Cherokee will not turn off

I may be able to help if you havent fixed it yet. I believe I had the same/similiar issue...

I would make sure all of the doors were locked with auto lock button on inside of door, then I would shut the door so all doors were locked from pressing the inside auto lock button. then I would use my key to unlock the trunk, open the trunk and close it leaving it unlocked. then i would use the key to unlock the drivers door and the security would reset... if not then unhook the battery for a few minutes then hook back up and see if that works.. glgl

Change key lock on igntion 1999 2500 4x4

does the ignition switch turn? Did you remove the top and bottom cover of the column by removing the torx screws? If so, there is a hole in the top of the housing that the lock cylinder fits in. FIRST unhook the battery!! Push a small nail or pick into the hole while holding the key in the START position. Rotate the key back to the run position and pull the switch out.
