Question about 2013 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Alarm sounds when using the FOB to unlock/Lockyer car and opening any doors. The power door locks work and the alarm/door lock work properly for a few minutes after it shuts itself off. When you go to use the FOB/door lock again, the alarm sounds off again. I've tried disconnecting the battery cables for more than 15 min. with no results. I checked the door connectors and noticed corrosion and cleaned them out, no results. I even disconnected the driver and passenger door connectors to see if there was a problem there, no results. I live more than 2 hrs away from the nearest dealership so I'm hoping someone can help me out.

SOURCE: alarm system goes off by itself

Your system may have a backup battery that has low voltage when the car is turned off. You may have to look under the dash to see if you can find the main computer for the alarm.

SOURCE: alarm sounding upon unlocking door with key

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.

My alarm cycles on and off on when vehicle is shut off.


  • Often times when this happens this is a problem with your door switch. The doors being locked or not does not necessarily mean that the alarm is not armed. When the door switch begins to fail the alarm senses the door being opened even if it is closed because the switch is sending a signal that the door is open. You could just need to reprogram the FOB as well.

  • Unfortunately the FOB must be programmed at the dealer or a technician with a proper interface. You might be able to ask the dealer to test your FOB first.

  • The switch you will notice on the inside of the drivers door and is activated by opening and closing of the door. You can pop that switch out and look at the wiring and give it a little cleaning and see if that helps. If it does it will be temporary and the switch will need replaced.

  • Hope this helps.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.

you may have a bad door switch, theres a switch on the drivers door lock, when door is unlocked with fob or key the switch is activeated to shut alarm down,the lock moves to hit switch with key or fob,so if the switch is bad it will not shut down alarm, i would start there,door panel has to be remove,then latch has to be remove to get to switch, then test with a meter see if it opens and closes the connection, hope this helps.

Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work


This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.
