Default Disabling panic alarm when using key?

Can you disable the "feature" of the panic alarm going off if you unlock the door with the key instead of the FOB? Doesn't make sense to me that the dealer supplies both, but you can't use the key to unlock the door and get into the truck without having to listen to the horn going on/off constantly.

It should be one of the settings in your radio. I always use the hard key on my truck, so I didn't find this out till I read about it on here. I guess the dealer kept the alarm off.

Really? I'll look again but didn't find anything when I looked the other day. I am encouraged though that you can actually use the hard key on your 2013 without the alarm going nuts...that's what I want too!

your not supposed to be using the key to open/close your door in the first place, thats not what it was designed for,

they have proximity keys for a reason, that key is just a fail-safe in case the battery on your fob dies.

the alarm is going off when you use the key because its not designed that way.

Well, that's kinda crap. There should be a setting somewhere.

There are circumstances where using the key is kinda handy. I often head to the lake and leave the truck at the access. Now - swimming/tubing with that fob isn't exactly high on the list of recommended practices for the electronics... But tie the key on a string, and it's somewhere I can keep track of it and not worry about getting it wet. In addition - leaving the fob somewhere easily accessible also sorta defeats the purpose in locking the vehicle in the first place.

i agree with you there, should AT LEAST have an override if you do so choose not to use the fob or the proximity key.

but i guess that defeats the purpose of the keyfob in the first place, similar to my 04 ram that used a basic chip key, didnt have to use the fob what so ever due to the fact the key itself had a chip in it. the truck is looking for the keyfob, if you just have the key minus the fob, for all the truck knows your using a bent coat hanger lol.


security "feature" lol

Turn off passive entry if it's on, then get a locking cap for your hitch receiver. Then you can keep that key on you and not the fob.
