Factory Security Alarm Issues!!!

Bought this 99' 5.2L Durango about a month ago...yesterday I put a new window motor on the driver door. Put it back together, locked it (probably locked for the first time ever since I bought it) Tried to unlock it with the key today, and the factory alarm started going off, horn honking. Tried starting it while the alarm is still going haywire, and of course it wouldnt turn over completely (which the computer is probably telling it to not pump gas to the engine since apparently im trying to steal it?) And yes the red "SECURITY" light blinks the whole time. If I close the doors and diconnect the battery and reconnect, it doesnt go off...until I open the door again...SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!

Unlock the passenger door with the key and it will shut off. I figured that out the night I bought mine, about 4 hours away from home.

Sorry I started with the threads that were on top first, didn't realize you started your own thread..


The factory alarm arms when the door is locked from the outside (maybe the inside also in 99, I'm not sure), then there's a separate disarm lead that goes to a switch in the door latches. It's a light green wire with an orange stripe, and it is present at both front doors and the hatch. You mentioned you have a remote start.. Check to see that the wire has not been cut where the RS's factory disarm wire is spliced in (should be at the big black connector to the left of the ebrake pedal). It's not uncommon when ScotchLocks/T-taps (especially the wrong size) are used for the splices that it cuts completely through the wire. If none of the door switches work, it means the CTM isnt getting the disarm signal (most likely due to a cut/broken wire).

You can try disarming by pulling the CTM out of its position (to the right of the glovebox) and finding the light green/orange wire (pin 10, black connector) and shorting it to ground. If that doesn't work then the CTM is defective and will need to be replaced.

in the 99 (mine anyways) the security system engages anytime I use the power locks, not if i manually lock the door. I figured that out after about a week of having to unlock the passanger door with the key just to start my truck.

You have the factory fob or an aftermarket keyless? It is supposed to disarm the factory security system when you unlock from the remote or using the key in any door (not just the passenger side, that's just silly).

I don't have the fob, the guy I bought it from never had one. It is the factory system but it looks like there was a remote start or aftermarket system at some point. It may be silly but thats the only way it works. I sat in a parking lot for almost an hour trying to get it to start, unlocked the passenger door with the key and the security light stopped blinking and it started right up.

Well that means there's something wrong.. (I know it's a factory security system but an aftermarket keyless system can be set to arm/disarm factory security as well.) It's supposed to disarm with the key from either front door or the hatch. You have either a broken wire between the driver's latch and the CTM (most likely in the flexible hose between the door and the jamb), or the switch inside the latch is busted. Pull your door panel and unplug the connector from the door latch. Lock the doors to set the security, then ground the lt green/orange wire and see if it disarms.

well my key doesnt even work for the back hatch but im not too worried about it since i rarely lock my doors and when I do i just push the lock down. Eventually I will fix it but its not a big deal right now.

Yes I do, but i dont have to pull the door panel off to test it. Im sure if there is a break its where the aftermarket system was hooked up at one point, its just held together with electrical tape.

Not necessarily.. If it was hooked up in the normal spot and broken there, you'd have the same problem the OP where it doesn't disarm from any door.

Ok well I was bored and I cant stand knowing that there is something I can do to my rango for free and just leave it and then most likely end up forgetting about it so I decided to look at it. In less than a minute I had it working right and I was quite shocked. It turns out that whoever installed it just stripped the insulation back and wrapped the wire around it and taped it off. when they removed it they just cut the wires and left the ends there. I pulled that off the wire and taped it back up and it works perfectly fine now.

Interesting.. Was this at the connector near the kick panel?
