Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I lost the remote to my Jeep alarm system, so I bought a new one from the dealer. I have followed the instruction I found online for my Jeep, but I cannot get the remote to program. The alarm system on the Jeep is activated, killing the engine and flashing the lights and sounding the horn. Is the fact that the alarm has been activated preventing the romote from programming? If so,how can I reset the alarm?
That remote should not be able to be programmed by you, it needs to be programmed by the dealer using their computer. I know that some later and earlier models can be programmed by the user, but I did some research on this as i have a 96 as well and it seems the 96 was a dealer computer thing. If you in fact bought the remote from the dealer they should be willing to program it for FREE. Otherwise I was given a $30 estimate for the programming.
