Why does the alarm sound when the key is used? I have had factory alarms systems for many years now, three other manufacturers, and none of the sounded the alarm when I used the key in the door. The door key lock has a sensor to disable the alarm.

I did try this and the alarm sounded. I felt like an idiot. I don't like feeling stupid with people looking at me like I have no idea what I am doing. IMO the alarm should not sound when I open the door with a key.

If I was sending a child to the truck to get something I would feel better giving them a key that would not start the vehicle. This configuration defeats that safety.

This whole alarm thing has me curios. My 2004 Ram had factory alarm, with the RKE and key as separate items (typical of the year). If I used the normal key to manually unlock the truck, it disabled the alarm. Also, one turn of the key unlocked the drivers door, and a second turn, unlocked the remaining doors. Same as 1 push on the RKE, and a second push to unlock all.

With my 08 (also factory alarm), if I manually unlocked the door with the key, it did NOT disable the alarm, and a second turn of the key did NOT unlock the rest of the doors. My 10 is the same as my 08.

Also noticed with my 04, the key turned easier in the lock than the other 2 trucks, but I did notice the slight resistance on the first turn as it 'Manually' moved the linkage....but only for part of the turn, then the power lock completed the unlock process.

My question here is, they had a great system back in 04....why the regression?
