does the security alarm system come equipped with a panic button?


Asked by Dec 08, 2015 at 03:06 PM about the 2016 Ram ProMaster 2500 159 High Roof Cargo Van

Question type: Car Customization

I ordered a 2016 Dodge promaster 2500 high roof, 159 wb, with a security alarm.  The key lock does not have a panic button as the catalog shows and the security alarm lite does not illuminate when you lock the vehicle.  My dealer is trying to tell me, it does not come with a panic button and the alarm lite does not function as the owners manual states!  Are the feeding me a line of B.S.

How about a pic of the key fob you have?


some automobiles, have a "light" switch on the key fob press it and the lights will come on and go off in 15 seconds or so, they also have a panic alarm which when the light switch is pressed on the key fob and immediatly pressed again the security alarm will go off for 15 seconds or so


This is it

That does not even look like any of the Dodge key fobs I looked up and it does not appear to have a panic button. If the dealer is giving you BS, go to another dealer and talk to them.

A panic function is basic and standard I think. This is what I came up with --

I suspect they are trying to pawn off an aftermarket fob and system on you.

I also received the same keyfob with no panic. the dodge "key" would have nowhere to insert or turn. My keyfob has the switchblade sidewinder key in it.

I just bought a 2017 ram promaster 1500 136" wb standard roof that came with the same exact type of key as beebeecroft photo demonstrate. According to my research looking to make a duplicate I have encountered that the key is exactly like the one made by Fiat which now own Daimler Chrysler. In my attempt to find a cheaper alternative key duplicate it gets very confusing but perhaps a locksmith or a key specialist can answer that.
