So you dont have a key fob or transmitter for the vehicle to turn off the alarm?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

Was the central timer module checked or replaced? It might just be as simple as that.

I chaned the bcm pcm and because I had no keys they got lost I change the BCM PCM in steering column 222 no security and the car starts and the truck starts but when I went to unlock the door the alarm went off in the truck still starts but the alarm goes the lights flash in the horn goes off I haven't checked the ctm

I would be willing to bet the CTM is faulty or there is a wiring issue to/from the CTM.

Here is a procedure you can use to disarm the alarm.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

With the doors closed and the key out of the ignition, ground the Light Green/Orange wire at the CTM. This is the disarm circuit that goes to the door disarm switches on the lock cylinders. Keeping this wire grounded will prevent the theft alarm from arming again.

I don't want to burn nothing up or mess it up
That is the signal wire into the module to turn off the alarm. Yes you can grounded and leave a grounded. You won’t hurt anything

Customer reply replied 1 month ago

But leave enough room or length or wire from the module to run it to a good ground.
