How do i disconnect the alarm on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee.

    I have the same problem on my 1994 Grand Cherokee. I pulled that fuse and have signicantly fewer alarms. My new issue is that sometimes as I drive down the road, my alrm will go off -horn stays on. I have to pull over, shut off the car and cycle the tailgate lock with the key (the two front door lock-enabled alarm switches are no longer functional).
    The alarm sometimes goes off when I cycle between hi-beam and low-beam on the head lights. I'm ready for the next step in the alarm disable solution.

There should be a fuse panel somewhere either underneath or on the side of your dash. On those year of Cherokees, I think it's on the passenger side, either on the wheel-well kick panel, or on the side that you can access when the door is open. The owner's manual that came with your vehicle will have a chart somewhere inside that shows a diagram a tells what each of your fuses controls. One of the fuses in the diagram should be labeled "anti-theft" or perhaps "security system". As long as this circuit doesn't have anything else running on it, you can find the corresponding fuse on your fuse panel, and simply remove it.

1997 jeep grand cherokee won't start after alarm went off

I just had the same prblem. Reconnect your alarm first of all. You need to use your key bob "remote" to deactivate the alarm before starting. It is a feature "good one" i might add that should someone try to steal it the jeep will not start until u deactivate it w theke bob.

I would like to disable the factory anti-theft and security system on a 1995 jeep cherokee with the v-8

According to the people at jeep it can not be disabled. WRONG!!!! here are the steps that work.
First you must pull the plastic off the front of the dash on the passenger side.
Behind the glove box you will find a metal box shaped compartment.
Inside that box is your alarm. DO NOT DISCONNECT IT YET!!!!!!!!!!
The most important thing is the jeep must be running before you disconnect the alarm.
Start the jeep and look at the little box and you will find one screw that is holding the alarm box in place. remove the screw and disconnect the wires going to it.
At this point you can turn off the jeep.
The reason you must have the jeep running is the computer shows it has an alarm in place and if you disconnect it while the jeep is not running it will shut down the jeep thinking it has been stolen.
With the jeep running and you disconnect the alarm it will not be able to send the code to the computer showing an alarm is in place and the jeep alarm will not cause you any problems ever again..
If you have questions about this just let me know at

I have a 96 jeep grand cherokee that won't hold a start

check your starter wire as mine was loose and did the same thing every time you interupt power to the alarm system it will flash the lights unlock the drivers door with the key and this will rearm the alarm and the jeep should start up if this is the problem rember to have good battery conections and a good batt first or else this will keep hapening also after 20 starts you may have to do the key thing again

Basicly you have to take apart the steering column cover and the switch is held in place with screws.
If you have to take the steering wheel off, it is best done by a qualified tech. There is an airbag in the steering wheel that has to be disconnected. THIS AIRBAG CAN GO OFF, PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS YOURSELF!!!!!!!
