CAR ALARM

When I press the lock on my key, the alarm LED light will not blink saying it's armed. Was wondering how I would be able to get that back?

Is this a factory alarm or a dealer installed aftermarket alarm?

I believe it's a dealer installed one.

Hi, Thanks for answering my post. We(at all the dealers I worked for) had outside people come in because selling an alarm system meant commissions for the salesmen who made practcally nothing. On Friday night at 6 o'clock P.M. All the cars and trucks were lined up with something wrong as people spliced into command wires who knew nothing of the wires they were tapping into. My advice is to tear it out and have another nice professional job done by an experienced alarm installer who has ASE certification and knows exactly how to wire it in according to the instructions the manufacturer supplies. However they have in-line fuses of very slight amperages that fail all the time. You'll find them tied in by the fuse block inside or under the hood near the battery. The most common problem they had was the hood switches that would fail, making the system unable to arm. I hope this helps, if you find you need anything you just let me know anytime I only come to this website because of the professionalism they have shown throughout. OK, Joe and it was my pleasure to offer you my professional advice on alarm systems and the aftermarket industry. Any door lock, or in car problem that exists will disable the system also. You know it's a necessary part of owning a truck and yours is one of the best made. No one will ever beat a Dakota for it's size, and affordability. No one. Bye for know hope to see you again, I have a transaxle in my garage that is cooked and must go now.
