Tip & How-To about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Before you start panicing, relax!!!! Most car alarms can be disarmed utilizing the valet switch. The most common procedure is to turn your ignition to the on position, (not running, just on), and then flip or hold the valet switch in for a second or two. You will know your alarm is in valet mode by simply watching the LED light that was installed, as it will turn on solid. This is the way most of the alarms work, so first thing to do is find your valet switch. Normally this is under the driver dash or in the drivers kick panel area. I have found some in the factory fuse box covers also. If you have checked all these areas and still cant find it, look for a switch attached to the wiring harnesses under the dash also. It really should be mounted somewhere under the dash though. Next turn the ignition on, not to accesory, but to the ON position. Then either flip that switch or hold it in. Your alarm should now disarm.

2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered
when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having
the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic,
the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming
the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
