Locate the sensors,one is faulty.Induction sensors just about everywhere(I think they are illegal)but most likely in the doors ,shock is preaty close to the alarm cdi,smal case with a dancing spring inside may be needed an adjustment in sensibility,it has a knob on the case,air volume sensors just over the head,in front,look like litle speakers (tiny)or microfons,unplug one at a time.Bst guess:adjust shock sensibility..

    Hard guess on this car,ceck with the dealer or brand service.general:shock sensor is located nearby the alarm module (under the dash,between chairs...etc,must track the wires) or even on the top of the box itself.may have a knob or a screwdrive to set +/-.Sorry...I'll digg it later.Close the car by key to avoid the alarm if not worry about it...

SOURCE: 1999 GMC suburban locks seize in locked postion

I just bought a 1999 Suburban and all of the door lock actuators were bad including the rear (barn style door) while I was replacing the rear door acuator I noticed that even with the factory mounting bracket on the actuator it was causing the door lock rod (the rod from the keyed cylinder lock to the actuator) was on a bind......the solution I came up with is adding an additional 3/4" spacer between the factory mount bracket and the door attach point. this solved any binding and the door lock works great now........also I used a lubricant on all the doors where the rods run through the plastic guides, which seemed to help quite a bit! Hope this help's.

SOURCE: how come on a 2002 GMC Denali if you lock your key inside

i would say the theft module saw the door trying to be open without the door lock or fob first, once the door lock button was pushed it shut down, it new doors were trying to be unlocked in a theft manner, once shut down it needs time to reset or needs to see ignition cycle with key and read chip in key, smart system isnt it, good luck.

Let your other half know that if it happens again, cracking the case, removing the battery and placing it open in a warm place should restore it. If not, buy a jug of distilled water (zero minerals), bathe the fob in it and repeat the drying process.

1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

How do I disarm my 2011 jeep grand cherokee alarm? It keeps going off randomly and my remote doesn't shut it off


GOT OPTION "ENTER AND GO"???????????????
did you use both FOBS. car came with 2, try using both , one at a time and not both near car as SAME time. ever.

mines turned off for ever,
i never armed it.
so page what.
wow 6 owners manuals, 4 for Uconnect, wow. pain.
page 22. read that?
sure.
is this not clear ,quoted
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you
remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE
transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed
(after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit,
the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm. You may also accidentally sound the
Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver's door
with the key and then opening the door

good luck deciphering this page, wow.!
page 23 is NO ENTER AND GO', OPTION.
Either press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter,
pull on the front driver or passenger door handle (refer to
"Keyless Enter-N-Go" in "Things To Know Before Starting
Your Vehicle" for further information) with a valid
key fob in range, or press the Keyless Enter-N-Go Start/
Stop button (requires at least one valid Key Fob in the
vehicle), or insert a valid Key Fob into the ignition switch
(if the Start/Stop button is removed) and rotate it to the
ON/RUN position.

END QUOTES FROM YOUR GUIDE.
if all this fails get jeep to fix it. (the magic is broken so...)
or ask them to explain, page 23 , in non GREEK..

How to program a fob?


Depends on the vehicle. Might have to have a locksmith do it or a dealership. Google the make, model and see what it takes to program the FOB. Good luck!

How to turn off the pro alarm


I would start by replacing the FOB. Sounds to like the electronics inside it are bad. The only reason the horns would go off is if you hit the panic button. There is a slight chance the receiver is bad. But Fobs are cheaper to replace than the receivers. If you have two FOBs and they both react the same, then replace the receiver. Or just ditch the system. The keys (in the door locks) should still activate the alarm system.

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.
