      Not using the wireless key to open the door sounds the alarm automatically [Solved]

      Hey,

      Has anyone came across an issue where the alarm system goes off when you use the metal key to open the door? Basically, I have a Dodge Dart Rallye with a wireless key FOB that also has a metal key inside of it. Sometimes if I'm going to the gym or biking, it doesn't make sense to carry around the FOB. Unfortunately, the alarm goes off anytime I use the metal key to unlock the door. Is there anything special I can do to prevent this? I apologize if this is already asked. I haven't went through the manual closely, but I just called the service so I'll respond back with whatever I figure out.

      --- EDIT & Answer ---
      So, it looks like the manual refers to the metal key as an emergency key. I guess the behavior and name makes sense, as that key is probably usually only used for when the battery goes out on the key FOB.

      Also, I just tried Ratlaw's tip and the alarm did not go off! Thank you for the help and quick response!

      Thanks,

Basically, I have a Dodge Dart Rallye with a wireless key that also has a metal key inside of it. Sometimes if I'm going to the gym or biking, it doesn't make sense to carry around the larger wireless unit. Unfortunately, the alarm goes off whenever I open the door with it. Is there anything special I can do to prevent this? I apologize if this is already asked. I haven't went through the manual closely, but I just called the service so I'll respond back with whatever I figure out.

      Thanks,
      Locking the door with the metal key should stop that.

      I believe he means it the way it's written. Happened to my wife in her Avenger too when her batteries died. She had to start the car to get it to cancel.

      Thank you! Ratlaw's tip did the trick. I'll post back if the service center gives me any additional insight into this. I'm assuming this is how the intended it to work.

      Its supposed to do this. The alarm is activated and the key doesn't disable the alarm when you put it in the door. Its just manually unlocking the drivers side lock. Cars have done this for years with alarms on them. The key doesn't have any kind of chip in it so how could it possibly disable the alarm? Its really no different from locking the car with the windows down, reaching inside the car, unlocking it manually (not using the button) and then opening the door. The alarm will sound.
