Disable Panic Alarm?

From : woody

Q: in my 4 weeks of owning a new ram 2500 i have been embarrassed 3 times by the panic alarm going off because the button was accidentally depressed with the remote in my pocket. today it was when sitting in a meeting with the truck parked outside. i hate car alarms in general and was really surprised to find that i was the idiot this time i do like the remote keyless entry concept but would really like to disable that panic button. there is no security alarm system here just the remote that is standard on a slt the manual does not have disable instructions and the dealer says that the alarm cant be disabled and after all it is a safety feature. safe from what peace and quiet anyway while the auto door locking crap was easy to disable my choices on the panic alarm seem to be 1. dont use the keyless remote at all; 2. open up the remote and do some surgery.. any other ideas woody .

came on within a day. finally found a 180 at napa; been running it for months with no problems. fuel economy is the same as with the 195 - lousy. but thats not why i bought the truck... joe does it run better or can you even tell no noticeable performance difference but running a bit cooler certainly doesnt hurt down here in sofla especially if i do a few mods later on. joe black 03 dakota 5.9 r/t cc calypso green 93 mustang 5.0 lx hatch with a few goodies . 222 282503 i62dnwanw5i0zqfdrvn-ug@giga.com hey woody mine truck is older and i did not have disable instructions in my manual. however i disabled my panic button with a small cutting of anti static baglike computer equipment comes in. just open the remote and cut/place a disk that covers the contacts for the switch. you can take it off to restore the remote later if you wish. ken in my 4 weeks of owning a new ram 2500 i have been embarrassed 3 times by the panic alarm going off because the button was accidentally depressed with the remote in my pocket. today it was when sitting in a meeting with the truck parked outside. i hate car alarms in general and was really surprised to find that i was the idiot this time i do like the remote keyless entry concept but would really like to disable that panic button. there is no security alarm system here just the remote that is standard on a slt the manual does not have disable instructions and the dealer says that the alarm cant be disabled and after all it is a safety feature. safe from what peace and quiet anyway while the auto door locking crap was easy to disable my choices on the panic alarm seem to be 1. dont use the keyless remote at all; 2. open up the remote and do some surgery.. any other ideas woody .

you can open up the remote same as changing the battery and put a some tape over the panic contacts or take a xacto knife and cut the trace to the contact for a more long term solution. on wed 05 may 2004 182408 -0400 woody ars1@ttlc.net wrote in my 4 weeks of owning a new ram 2500 i have been embarrassed 3 times by the panic alarm going off because the button was accidentally depressed with the remote in my pocket. today it was when sitting in a meeting with the truck parked outside. i hate car alarms in general and was really surprised to find that i was the idiot this time i do like the remote keyless entry concept but would really like to disable that panic button. there is no security alarm system here just the remote that is standard on a slt the manual does not have disable instructions and the dealer says that the alarm cant be disabled and after all it is a safety feature. safe from what peace and quiet anyway while the auto door locking crap was easy to disable my choices on the panic alarm seem to be 1. dont use the keyless remote at all; 2. open up the remote and do some surgery.. any other ideas woody .
