There is a reason and that is that one of the door ajar sensors is defective most likely. To determine which sensor is the problem you must have the dealer scan the system ans be able to duplicate the problem.
If you have a vehicle alarm installed the alarm module is faulty or set too sensitive. If you don't have any alarm installed there are a number of reasons for this to happen but in the end they all lead back to the ECM unit.
There is probably a reason...I would look for bad grounds. A good place to look is at the battery terminal. Clean them and if the problem still exist, I would have an experienced tech look at the unit itself.
disable the hood microswitch. just unplug it. That and the cabin sensor are the most probably reasons the alarm will go off.
Alarms are useless. Totally effin useless. So it goes off.....then whaddya going to do. Shoot someone? Call the police? or listen to it drain the battery over and over again.
But....you can't disable the alarm totally. The bmw engineers have tied it into the main computer. you can however disable the sensors one by one so it doesn't set off the alarm. Hood sensor....Hood sensor....that's the culprit.
There is a security system built-in to the Jeep Grand Cherokee during these years. The reason the alarm goes off is because of a change in the electrical system (like shutting a door) that triggers the alarm. To stop the alarm, either disarm with the remote or unlock the door from the outside with the key. This will shutoff the alarm.
