Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport

1 Answer

Looking to disable the alarm system for a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport

I recently changed the battery on my '96 cherokee sport, and now the alarm system is preventing me from starting the car. I do not have the alarm remote. The lights blink and there is a ticking noise that goes on for a few minutes whenever I open the car door. I removed the wiring from underneath the dashboard, but the alarm still goes off. How can I disable the alarm so I can start the car?

    Thank you. Not being a car person, I cannot distinguish between the two. The wires that I disconnected from underneath the dashboard are red and blue, but I cannot find any of the same color under the hood. Am I looking in the right place? I keep reading about vehicle security modules located behind the glove box? Or, is this only applicable for Grand Cherokees? Any help would be aprreciated.

    Thank you.

Speedometer works but odometer does not on my 96 jeep Cherokee sport.

Generally its something inside the speedo cluster. You can try to replace it with a used cluster or send it out to have it repaired.
The dealer may have a list of shops qualified to rebuild Jeep clusters.
