Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Alarm sounding upon unlocking door with key

I locked my keys in my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I used a Slim Jim to open the door. Ever since I did that, every time I open the car with the key, the alarm sounds off and it will only go away if I turn the engine on.

Help.

There is a sensor that tells the anti theft module you used the key to unlock the door, it is attached to the door latch or lock cylinder, u must have disconnected the wire to the sensor, so it thinks u are breaking into the car.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Alarm system


There are switches on the door lock cylinders that are supposed to shut the alarm off when you use the key,but they go bad allot. you could try unlocking the passenger door first, since that one usually gets less use and is less likely to go bad. Otherwise you can disconnect the alarm module, it is located behind the glove box.
