RE: Alarm system problem '97 dakota
Next time your factory truck alarm starts going off, get out of the truck, shut the drivers door, put your key in the lock, turn the key fully to the left, locking it , then fully to the right unlocking it, this will disable your alarm. My truck does exactly what you are describing every once in awhile, im not sure what i am doing to get it to go off like that or even how i am getting the alarm to come on, but at least i found a way to shut it off without a remote. Also i do not have a smart key, at least i dont think so, looks like a plain key to me.
