To reset the alarm, you have to lock everything back up and then use the key to unlock the tailgate FIRST. After that, you can unlock any of the doors with the key without the security system locking everything off.

(Needless to say, I gained familiarity with this situation from personal experience!)

Sentry key councel symbol on the dashboard of my 2004 grand cherokee, does it mean my key is gone bad? what should i do

Hello, This is not a Brand I normally service. If you have a Dash light indicating that you have a "Security Lock-out" then I would look at your Owners' Manual for instructions on Reactivating the system.

You can call a Jeep Dealer and ask basically the same thing. "How do I get my Jeep started once the Security system has been activated?".

Some of the Security systems have their own Weird procedures like hitting the doorlock button 3 times after the Keyswitch has been turned 3 times within a number of seconds.

Your Battery could be bad in the Jeep and this is sometimes picked up as attempted Theft when the wiring Voltage fluctuates. The Security system views the Voltage fluctuations as Wire Tampering.

Just brought a 95 jeep cherokee was left for like 8 month so dead battery jumped it and started 1st time with alarm goin and alarm wouldnt stop so had to drive it to mine like that soon as i got to mine...

Try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. Usually that will re-set the security system. Also try the rear hatch lock as sometimes that is used instead of driver door.

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee. i went to start it the other day and the alarm started goin off and it ran for a few seconds and then died. is there a way to disconnect the alarm so it will stay running...

If you use the original key to lock & unlock it from the tailgate and then try starting it, it should reset the system. Be aware that when it this begins to happen more often, it is usually an indication of the battery getting weak & losing the onboard memory for the security memory. If you are using an aftemarket key this may continue to shut down because the security system does not recognize an uncoded key.

We understand that your problem is: My 95 jeep

Have it towed to a car alarm specialist that is familar with Chrysler products. With a little luck they can fix it.. To reset alarm
(if it will work}, try locking drivers door and unlock it with the remote from outside.

The 5 second thing does not sound good.. Usually this locks your ECM out so it will never start. Thinks someone is trying to steal it.

Not sure why you disconnected the battery to replace plugs, but try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. That should re-set the security system.

Start, run shortly, die. Not Security

If you have a keypad on the door, put in the security code and see if it cancels the problem. If you changed the code to your own personal code you may have to enter the factory code the car came with.

94 Jeep Grand Cherokee heater coil has been replaced wont start

If you have a security system, close all the doors and then lock the drivers door with the key, then unlock it. That should re-set the system. I've had the computer completely disconnected from mine several times (used it to check another vehicle) and I don't have started and ran fine...only difference between the two is the security so I'd try that.
