Quickest way i know of here is providing its a factory immobilisor and not a boy racer add on then take the chip out of the key and tape it under the shroud next to the transponder ,This way the car thinks its got the key in and this will stop the alarm

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.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

Car alarm on a dodge stratus


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.
