98 Jeep Wrangler with Alarm Problem - Installed by Marietta Jeep

I bought a 98 Jeep Wrangler from Marietta Jeep and they had installed an alarm that uses a small key you plug into a receiver under the steering wheel. It worked for 10 years but now it won't disengage. When I try to start the Jeep the horn honks and lights flash, but won't start. Any ideas how to disable the alarm?

    The fix was dead on. The only changes is they did not splice the Orange wire. All I had to do was connect the large black cable to itself and everything works fine now. Thanks for your help.

Your vehicle has 2 ignition wires that you can put back to factory, and start the vehicle.
The wires you are looking to put back together are (blue) and (black/orange) - and found under the D/S dash. (ignition harness) They will be larger in Diameter than the others.
They were cut to install the security system. They go into the "brain" and out the other side. A relay inside the BRAIN is most likely failing.
If you no longer want the alarm installed, simply match up all of the factory colors. Use crimp-on ****-connectors for secure connection.
Let me know if you need more help.

The beeping alarm would be for leaving the key in the ignition or the lights on. Maybe a gauge that had dropped to zero.
Let us know if it happens again and what the conditions are.

I have a factory installed alarm on my 2003 jeep cherokee ,how do i disable alarm


Hello! The drivers side door lock/unlock switch is more than likely defective...Having said that, the alarm system on Jeeps are a constant problem...To disable the system requires removing the drivers door panel and cutting the Light Green/Orange wire at the switch...And installing a 465 Ohm resistor...Not something done without the necessary skills...
I would have the vehicle towed to a Jeep dealer and have them test the drivers door switch and disable the alarm....Guru...saailer

Jeep wont start.Have replaced ecu,coil,crankshaft sensor and wiring harness.Still no power to coil i have 1991 jeep wrangler 2.5 manual 4x4


Check the wiring going to the coil. If you installed an alarm on that vehicle disconnect the main power wire to the alarm to disable the ignition kill circuit. Locate the ignition relay located on the drivers side fender wall or in the power distribution box under the hood and test it. finally, there is a fuse on the interior fuse panel that will give you this condition. I do not have the exact location so check all fuses in the panel and replace any blown fuses.

There are several things you need to check. Start by checking the alignment between the pinion gear of the starter and the flywheel. If that is loose or binding the starter will do this. Next, check teh starter relay to make sure it isn't faulting out. finally, if you have an Alarm installed, cut the power wire to the alarm or pull the fuse to make sure it isn't the Anti-Theft circuit malfunctioning and stopping it from starting.

Car Alarm


I had the same thing happen to me when I lived in Las Vegas. Mine was a 98 Rodeo also with factory alarm. I took it to a shop but they said it was the radio waves that caused it to go off and I could buy a new one. I had to take my horn fuse out b/c i didn't know what else to do at the time. Then I moved and I never had the problem again.
