Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
We had trouble with the security system coming on and locking everything up and an apparent short was cutting the motor off and draining the battery. We replaced the battery and checked fuses, thought we unhooked the system, but we had the vehicle valet parked the other day and its dead as a door nail. Jumping only lasts so long before whatever is triggering the system shuts the vehicle down again
Got a manual dont bother no mention of security system components
There have been problems with electronic alarms draining batteries and locking out etc caused by RF interference.
This can be from Phone transmitters, WiFi hubs or other sources of RF energy.
Basically - the alarm is staying awake reading every piece of interference - and after a number of attempts locks out.
You could try contacting the manufacturer - to put the system onto a different frequency, or reduce the sensitivity by shielding the aerial of it - or find the cause of the RF problem.
Contact here again if this doesn't solve it.
