Does anyone know what the passive anti-theft device is on an '02 Dakota. Is it an option or standard? My insurance co. says information from the manufacturer indicates I might have one. I bought it used and don't see it on the original window sticker.

Passive anti-theft is when the manufacturer imprints major mechanical parts of your truck with the VIN# like frame rails, axles angine block, etc... that's how they traced the uhaul used in the Oklahoma City bobming to the guy who did it.

According to my insurance company here in Pennsylvania passive anti-theft is any device that I have to arm in order for it to be a theft deterrent. I have a remote start/alarm on my Dak and that is considered passive anti-theft becuase I have to push the button to arm it. I believe putting this alarm on my truck saved me $5.00 a year. So, I would say it is not a big deal, it isn't going to save you a lot of money.I do love my remote start though!

Almost got it right. Passive is where the system arms itself after a set period of time has passed, etc. If you arm it, then it's an active alarm system.

I think a sign in the window that say "please dont steal this truck, thank you" is a Passive Anti- Theft device

Sheesh, LOL, you guys break me up! Great sense of humour around here....

:)

Passive is ANYTHING you do to deter theft---etching, putting a sign that reads, 'DAKOTA protected by my dog, Mr. Smith and Wesson' etc. It requires no further ACTION TAKEN or INPUT by the owner.

ANYTHING that requires an ACTION whether physical or mechanical (ie: an electronic arming, or the push of a finger upon a button) is considered ACTIVE.

Why? Because it is an ACTIVATION of whatever is protecting your vehicle, and it will RESPOND to attempts at theft by an ACTION....alarm, or two 'barking' holes in the perp's head....by your faithful dog, named; Mr. Smith and Wesson who is 'barking' out of your bedroom window....

The dog is the most reliabe method to insure that the perps don't come back to bother your vehicle at a later date.....

Well, the sign would be an example of a passive device; but actually firing is an example of an active device...

recently changed out key lock cylinder and removed ignition switch to do so.
Now engine does not turn over and behaves as if it is not in park-no sounds
, only hum of fuel pump and smell of gas, and lights,radio, blower all work as
well. I've been told I need to reset atd, because I worked on ignition,anti-
theft locked me out or shut down as safety measure. 1993 dodge dakota LE,
3.9 L v6-- I have not installed any anti theft device, did it come factory, and
how do I find it- or what else could it be-my first DIY auto project-can't
afford labor cost. Thank you -- ANY help will be appreciated jc
