2009 Dodge Nitro To Arm the System

Remove the keys from the ignition switch and exit the vehicle. Lock the doors and liftgate by pressing the power door LOCK switch or the LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. Close all the doors.

The Vehicle Security Light (located in the instrument cluster) will flash rapidly for about 16 seconds to signal that the system is arming. During this 16 second pre-arm period, opening any door or the liftgate will cancel the arming process. If the system arms successfully, the Vehicle Security Light will flash at a slower rate to indicate the alarm is set. Manually locking the doors with the door lock plunger (located on the inside of the doors) or the driver’s door key lock cylinder will not arm the system.

2009 Dodge Nitro To Disarm the System

Either press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter or insert a valid Sentry Key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the ON position.

The Vehicle Security Alarm system is designed to protect your vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the system will give you a false alarm. If the previously described arming sequence has occurred, the system will arm regardless of whether you are inside or outside the vehicle. If you remain inside the vehicle and open a door, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the system. Manually unlocking the doors with the door lock plunger (located on the inside of the doors) or the driver’s door key lock cylinder will not disarm the system.

Tamper Alert

If something has triggered the Vehicle Security Alarm in your absence, the horn will sound three times when you unlock the doors. Check the vehicle for tampering.
