Question about Alarm & Keyless Entry System Dodge Vehicles

1 Answer

I own a Dodge Grand Caravan - the keyless remote appears to have lost battery power. The alarms were acting up just prior to this - with locks being partially activated throughout the van. Finally the alarm system sounded one morning upon entry and would NOT shut off even when keys in the ignition were turned on....although I could not start the vehicle. Do I simply need a new remote battery or is this evidence of larger electrical problems?

If its serve my memories correctly, the systems you have is that when you remotely activate the alarm system with the key-less remote you must deactivated with the remote also in order for the vehicle to work, the reason why is that if some one break in you car without disarm the car without the main remote the alarm will go off; it keep the thief from starting the car and drive off. the key-less remote system keep the thief from stealing the car by not deactivating the remote first. I hope that make sense to you. you would need to replace a new battery for your remote very doubt would be any electrical problems.

Keyless remote stopped working, I replaced battery


The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.


2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
  1. Insert one of your working combination keys into the ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
  2. Insert your second working combination key into the ignition within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove it.
  3. Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to "On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the key and the remote--is programmed.
  4. Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to program. A total of eight can be programmed.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

My dodge caravan '09 keyless entry does not work at times


I've had the same problem with my 2009 Grand Caravan also.
I asked the dealer about it, but they weren't aware of anything regarding this. Since it has only happened a couple of times during the past year I haven't done anything else about it. They offered to replace the RKE fob (remote) if the problem persisted.

The dealership can use the vin number to make you another key. You shouldn't have to have the keyless remote key. You can get a regular key.
