Dodge Ram 2500: My theft deterrent system in my 2004 Ram 2500

Customer Question

My theft deterrent system in my 2004 Ram 2500 has tripped. I didn't even know it had one for the 2 years I've owned it until now. The truck won't start, the lights are all flashing. I put a new battery in it but the system won't reset. It does not have keyless entry and I'm using the only key the dealer gave me (that has worked until now).

Ok, based on that VIN number, this truck does not have a factory alarm. It must have an aftermarket one. So try this: look under the dash around the steering column for a small black push button,Or on the bottom of the dash. If you see it, turn on the ignition and push that button. Let me know how it goes.

Wow! Found it. Had to pull part of the panel apart but eventually there it was. Sure would have been nice for the dealer to have told me it was there but I assume the Original Owner never told them. What a pain in the A$$!Thanks! Appreciate the help!
