Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

Remote door opner

I am having trouble with my door opening / security start remote. I can not start my car properly because the remote control will not work, I have renewed the butteries and still having the same problem (Dont think it is the remote as I have 2 and both have the same problen) I can unlock the doors with the key but cannot deactivate the security warning on the dashboard, the car will start but cuts out after 10 - 15 seconds. Does anybody have any ideas or can the security cut out be deactivated to get me back on the road - Thank You

Its not a problem with the remote but the sensor attached to your car. you may need to replace the remote system or wiring.

Do any doors lock/unlock with remote keyless entry ?
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter battery.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • Remote transmitter programming.
  • Aftermarket system.
  • High power devices.
  • TV/radio transmission towers.
  • Vehicle security module.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .
Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter
Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

Jeep one year old. Keyless just stopped working. Engine starts for a second then cuts off. Replaced battery in key/remote and still doesn't work. Now alarm sounds if opened with the key the old...


Assuming you have a second key try using that one to deactivate the alarm, if not replace battery in remote. Does lock and unlock work now? you will need to get the remote operational to disengage the security feature that will not allow car to start.
if not disconnect the car battery let sit for 15 min to reset system try again..make sure bettery in remote is installed properly.

Security will not reset


The disarm switch on the latch inside the door is most likely defective, pull the door panel and test it for proper function.
