Why would a 1996 Dodge Avenger alarm keep going off and lock-unlock while driving?

Check your hood alignment sensor for the alarm and the trunk sensor

I have a 98 Avenger and right after i bought is when my alarm went off ... (Ididn't even know there was an alarm....) I finally disarmed it by putting the key in the drivers door lock and unlocking it. Good Luck!

I think it is in the console part of the car. Just pull it up and you should see it.

i have a 1999 avenger and my alarm would go off for no reason at all so what i did was take out the fuses for the alarm and the horn and it seem to work. (fyi after doing so your alarm will not work) if your alarm goes off and you do not have a remote- put your key in the passenger side door and turn it to the left... it will turn off the alarm... OR I think i tried the passenger door and it would not work for me. I know that you can unlock the trunk and it will disarm.

98' avenger past experience check the alarm wire on the inside of the lock/ tumbler. ( driver side) it may have fallen down. try unlocking w/ key on passenger side.

If it's anything like my 98 avenger. All you have to do is re lock the car with the key or if you have a key fob lock it that way. It should disarm it once it goes off

I had a similar problem when I first got my Avenger. My remote was not working, so everytime I locked the door ( while open)the alarm would arm. This is the trick: Lock the door when it's closed, don't lock it when it's open otherwise the alarm will go off. OR You can disarm the alarm by unlocking the trunk with the key. I learned of this from a Dodge dealership. Had issues with the remote and once you lock the car from the inside or out it is armed. I ran into times where i would lock the door after getting in then once i started the car alarm would go off or once locked you cannot open the door from the inside or alarm will go off.

How do you bypass the alarm system on a 1990 Dodge Dynasty?

Your remote might need replaced, the buttons are probably worn out. They usually don't last for 10 years!

There is no reset. If the alarm goes off while driving and you are buckled in, you need to check the wires going to the seat belt buckle.

You can get the new keyless entry remotes at any chrysler/dodge dealer, but they also have to be reprogrammed to your specific vehicle by a chrysler/dodge dealer as well. Last quote I got was $65 per keyless entry pad. Hope this answer helps.

Do you mean how to reset the alarm system if it goes off? If so I had to disconnect my battery cable so it could reset itself. The dealer told me to use the key on the passenger side door and unlock it. This should stop the alarm. But mine didn't work. Good Luck. I've found with mine that if I hit the auto-lock while both the driver's and passenger's doors are open, it is more likely to arm the alarm. The only way I'm able to get it turned off other than disconnecting the battery (because my keychain remote is dead) is to open the trunk using the key. lol I have no idea why this works, but it always does. I own a 1995 Dodge Avenger. And, when my alarm goes off, I insert my key in the drivers side door and lock and unlock the door. This is the only way I am able to turn off my alarm.

The factory alarm is not removable. It is part of the computer programming.
