2001 Dodge Durango Factory Alarm

Unread post by Piper » Mon Feb 03, 2014 6:52 pm

My alarm will arm (horn sounds once, security light on info center is lit), but if a door is opened the alarm does not sound. (I roll down the window, get out of the car, hit the arm/lock button on fob, then reach in and open the door - no honking or flashing lights).

A couple of days ago, someone tried to steal my car and pulled some wires down from under the dash and I had that reconnected by a mechanic.

Where or what is the sensor that sets off the alarm when a door is opened when the alarm is armed?

Any suggestions?

the alarm goes off the power door lock motor/ajar switch in each door and the cylinder lock switches.

Thank you. The door ajar light still comes on if I open the door. Does this mean it's probably the lock cylinder switch and not the power door lock motor? (I'm trying to narrow it down).

do you have gray ignition keys or black keys? Gray have a chip in the key, black does not (factory keys)

when security is activated the security light will flash rapidly for 15 seconds the flash at a slower rate afterwards. If security does not flash it is not arming.

you should have your vehicle scanned for anti-theft related DTC's
