Question about 1989 Dodge Dynasty
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.
