Hello,
My alarm in my Detonator is going off randomly all day.Any ideas? Another question, why would using MY KEY to unlock my door make the alarm go off? Any input is appreciated!

Dodge Nitro: Vehicle security alarm

The hood "Open" switch can cause problems with your alarm. Make sure your hood is completely closed. Also reset your Nitro computer by removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes can sometimes be helpful. Let us know and Good Luck!

I fallowed all suggestions given to me
  • disconnected my battery, attached + and – cables together for about 20 minutes while disconnecting old TIPM and installing the new Programmed TIPM with new correct fuses installed, then checked all plugs to be plugged in tight and locked, connected battery cables to battery.
  • I was given directions to take out my Hood Latch Sensor, check the condition, clean it and replace it or place it back cleaned in order to stop my alarm sound from going off time to time.
Did not help the alarm from going off time to time!
I got it fixed over 5 months ago!
I purchased a professionally factory rebuilt Fuse Box that even came with the original fuses in it with 3-year warranty by sending a photo of the model number on mine and that settled the alarm going off for no reason!



Genuine Mopar Horn Switch 68004148AC was replaced new and the horn that went off time to time while I was driving.
This ended this problem!

So what was the resolution to this issue? I am dealing with my alarm going off middle of the night.
The Alarm going off during the middle of the night I replaced everything listed above and the Alarm/not horn still went off at night - Then I purchased a professionally factory rebuilt Fuse Box that even came with the original fuses in it with 3-year warranty by sending a photo of the model number on mine and that settled the alarm going off for no reason!

I only purchased a Genuine Mopar Horn switch to stop the very seldom horn blow while I was driving!

Gotcha, so you replaced the entire TIPM aka fuse box located on the upper right hand corner of the engine area?

when you replaced it did you have to have the dealership reconfigure anything or was it just plug and play?

I really appreciate your response!!!

No paying a mechanic to do the job at all.
Just order around $280.00, already programed for your year and model, with 100% new matching fuses already in place. I fallowed directions:
disconnect the battery (both cables),
remove old TIPM Fuse Box,
cleaned around it and reinserted it, plug it in tight until all plugs clip and
then connect both battery cables
then turn the key to on position for 5 minutes,
then start and then give a little time (3 days) when you begin driving to completely readjust your vehicle.
There are plenty of YouTube videos for Nitro TIPM replacement that helped me a lot!

www.ebay.com/itm/324354798654 - I replaced it May 2021 and was given a refund for sending in the old one! I have not had ANY Alarm sound go off at all and my mechanic tested my 2011 Nitro for Tune-up stated that everything electronic reads & reacts faster and was advised to take it to a Dodge dealer for them to simply update - plug in to WITECH and Updated PCM to Latest Version and the Nitro has remained great since May 2021 and I only owned it since March 7th 2021 as my everyday everywhere transportation up to today I love it! I did purchase 1 month ago a Chevrolet HHR 4cyl for work due to the Fuel Price only!
