How to Reset the Security System on a Dodge Caravan

by Alibaster Smith

The security system on a Dodge Caravan acts as an anti-theft deterrent. The security system uses a proximity sensor and ignition kill switch to help prevent unauthorized vehicle use. While the system is designed to work reliably, there are times when you may experience a false alarm. When this happens, it can be somewhat embarrassing, especially when you are trying to get in the van. In these cases you will need to reset the security system.


Insert the ignition key into the driver side door lock.


Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock the door.


Turn the key clockwise to initiate the alarm activation sequence.


Turn the key counterclockwise. The alarm will stop and reset itself.
