If it is a factory alarm, it does not have a shock sensor. The alarm will go off if the door or hood is opened while the system is armed. You can test this by:

1. Get in the truck, close all the doors.
2. Arm the alarm system.
3. Wait 10-15 seconds and unlock the door manually then open it. The alarm should/will go off.

An aftermarket alarm will provide protection against any kind of shock. Meaning if the truck moves too hard (i.e. someone kicks it, or breaks out a window) the alarm will go off

I have a 1889 dodge dynasty it starts and runs a few secands and turns off it restarts and the same thang happins it started this after the battery went bad could this be a securty prob


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.

I have a 97 dodge ram, the security system arms itself and with in 5 minutes it goes into alarm byitself


A 97 dodge ram does not have an alarm system available from the factory. I would suggest you bring the vehicle to the aftermarket installer and have them repair the faulty unit.

2002 dodge ram 1500 flashing red light and dead


When you disconnected the battery, you tripped the alarm which locked down everything. In your owners manual, look under the security or alarm system. It will tell you how to disarm your particular alarm system. If I am not mistaken on these you put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock it 2-3 times. If you do not have the owners manual, you can contact dodge and they will walk you through it.

Replacing side mirror on 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
