The key and tumbler need to be replace.for now if your battery is good turn key to the run posistion till all lights on dash are on.do this for twelve minutes the light should stop flashing this will reset the security system.

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.

Hi, if the alarm is armed the car not going to start,it might start and shut right back off.

This sounds like a bad alarm module, the doors unlock but the alarm doesnt shut down, so it wont let you start it because its not shutting down, the light flash and door unlock put starter disable and horn stay active, most good alarms have liftime module warranties, if you take it back to who installed it and ask them or if it was already in the car when you bought it then you will need to disable or replace it. hope this helps, also to disable it just trun key on then open a open try key off and within 10 sec push the button under the dash its a small red button this will put it in vallet mode.

My steering wheel is locked on my 1996 pontiac grand am. the car starts now but shuts off. my alarm started to go off by itself about 1 year ago. the lights flash on and off at random now.


the problems are NOT related...my best guess is you lack the upper body strength to pull right or left on the wheel with the key in the ignition to unlock the wheel...find a nice young man to help...On the alarm, go to your local car stereo installation shop and ask them to diagnose the system...if they do it free (sometimes) buy them lunch...what $10?
Good Luck

ELECTRICAL MISTERY


Here's a first step: Put key in ignition, turn on but do not start car. When dash lights up, the alarm light will flash if it has been triggered. If this alarm light is flashing, you have set off the alarm. Here's how to reset it: Leave key on, and let the thing flash for five minutes or so. Finally it will stop flashing on its own. Now start the car. If it runs ok. Kill it and turn key back on to check if light has stopped its flashing. This may be way off, but that is the reset procedure for alarms on those blazers. Man I've seen a bunch of them in my shop this year!!!

whenever you loose RPM it indicates that the ECM is failing and usually after the vehicle cools down it will start like nothing happened so the first place to start with this problem is the vehicles ECM
