The alarm system on your Jeep Grand Cherokee is controlled by a small, approximately 3 inch square box that plugs into wiring under your dash on probably the drives side towards the middle. It is black in color and is printed with the words "alarm module. If you unplug that the alarm system will be permanently disabled and starting issues may be resolved as well.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded) until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once.
This should reset the alarm, and reset the grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine. the valet switch is by driver side kick panel look for small button may be stuck in wire harness to hide
You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die? Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?
Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?
This may or may not help. Hopefully it will. We recently purchased this
1998 chrysler town & country. Everything was working fine, started
fine, etc. we took it to get emissions done.....passed emissions..
.made it home. i turned the car off to run inside for a minute. came
back out car started.. ran for 3 seconds than died out. tried again...
ran for 3 seconds than died out... after that it no longer would do
anything. all the lights worked except in the ignition module. the top
dashboard lights worked though. I then noticed that the "alarm set"
light stayed lit. after replacing fuses and running an OBD test and
found no trouble codes or issues with fuses it dawned on me it may be
the alarm. after searching the internet
for hours i found a forum that suggested unplugging the battery for
about 5 minutes....rehook it and then try starting it again. well i
tried doing that the first time using the REMOTE to unlock the doors
and nothing happened. i locked the doors and repeated the same battery
unhook-rehook process except without using the remote... (i noticed a
lot of forums saying that the remotes can be deffective in that they
somehow trigger the alarm if the transmitter is not working
properly)... so after unhooking and rehooking the battery and using
only the key to unlock it started right up! so i've decided to not use
the remote at all and have had no other problems. let me know if this
