I have a transponder "spare" key but not the keyless entry. If the alarm is set, can I get in the car and drive away without the alarms going off if I use the spare transponder key? It is a 2012 Dodge Avenger.
With UNlocking the car's drivers door with your "spare key", the alarm should deactivate and not start blaring the horn.
IF you try that and it "sounds off", then I guess I'm wrong.
Welcome to the Forumz!
It is supposed to From what the owners manual says(from what other members have posted here in the past). If your car still has the owners book in the glove box(I've heard later years have gone to a CD/DVD) it will give you the definitive answer to this question.
I have the older and different platform coupe, but the alarm steps are the same. I know because a family member activated the system accidentally and with no fob was able to deactivate it with the key in the drivers door and a left turn of it on ours.
Using the key to do this is NOT a "one time" doing, it will have to be done each time you want to get into the car, but again a read of the owners book will be the definitive course.
Good Luck, and if my responses have not satisfied you maybe a few of our other membership will soon "join in"...this is kind of a slow time for our gang here on the forum.
I bought my 2008 used and it didn't not initially come with a key fob (I made the dealer order one for me), but yah I had the same problem for a few weeks.
The only workaround I found was to NOT set the alarm and lock the doors manually.
If the alarm is set, then unlocking the door with the key will set off the alarm every time.
Please anyone if you could help me I would greatly appreciate it! Please check the link as this is what it sounds like! My avenger us making this sound! Need to know what to get fixed its embarrassing! Thank you
I don't know when the last time the spark plugs have been changed in my 2010 SXT, if ever so I'm thinking it might be time but I had a couple questions first. What are some of the symptoms of spark plugs going bad specifically in the Avengers? My red lightning bolt light (ETC I believe) comes on...
I was driving my car and went to accelerate only to realize the car wasn’t shifting into 2nd gear. Car accelerates but won’t shift. I’ve read that it can be a solenoid issue or that I need to replace the whole transmission. Really don’t want to spend more money than I should so I’m trying to...
Hey so I’ve had my avenger for the last 4 years and recently I got a Jeep and let my sister borrow my car and long story short it got wrecked in an accident. Only had liability and therefore insurance wasn’t covering anything. Got it out of the impound and back to my moms house where it’s been...
Hello everyone! I have a 11 dodge avenger 2.4l and had the same issues as most with the shifter stuck on park. The pink clip isn't broken and I'm able to manually unlock it. I noticed that it's not unlocking nor do I hear anything when I press the brake to unlock the shifter. Where is the shift...
