You sure can, it is easy as pie buy you have to kinda know what you are doing.... and where the alarm is installed.
First, you take the negative side of the battery off as you will be working on the electrical system of the car.
Then locate the alarm. It will be a small black box usually mounted under the steering wheel somewhere.
Unplug all of the wires from the alarm. There should be wires in a pin block plugged into the alarm box. just unplug the white connectors from the black alarm block.
Cover the pins with electrical tape and make sure that you do this good, you dont want to have an accidental short.
Tape or zip tie the plugs up and out of the way, Leaving these in the car will make it easier when you or the next owner wants to put another alarm in the car. Furthermore, with you taping the ends of the wires up real good, there is relatively low risk in leaving them in there. Out of sight, out of mind... as long as you do a good job :)
The alarm system on your Jeep Grand Cherokee is controlled by a small, approximately 3 inch square box that plugs into wiring under your dash on probably the drives side towards the middle. It is black in color and is printed with the words "alarm module. If you unplug that the alarm system will be permanently disabled and starting issues may be resolved as well.
there is a plugin, black box under dash that can be unplugged to totally disable security system. the black box has a sticker on it that says alarm/security. you while have to use a flashlight to find it under dash. nothing else will be effected by removing this box. can not say if its on drivers side or passengers side. hope this helps !! merry christmas !! the remote clicker will still work, but the factory alarm wont.
Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes. If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system. this is from the manual its the alarm wiring diagram.

I had the same problem with my 94 jetta, I would also have the alarm turn on as I connected the battery, if you lower the fuse box being careful not to disconnect anything, there is a box to the upper driver-side aria(that is if you are laying on your back looking up under the dash) this is the alarm control unit, there should be a white label on the wires indicating so (think it says alarm in German) theres a 6 pin(wire) connector and a 10 pin. unplug both connectors and look at the 6 pin connector. There is numbers where the wires are located on the connector, if you take a piece of wire and "bridge" wires 5 and 6 (The largest wires on the connector, red/red w/black stripe) your starter should work, any problem with the alarm system can cause the starter to be disabled. after bridging the wires or simply connecting them do not plug anything back into the alarm box, after this you standard vehicle alarm will be disabled permanently, but you will be able to start your car. If this dose not fix the problem you may have a defective starter, hope this helps.
Look under the driver side seat for a black box, with several wires going to it. This is the controller for the security system. Please do NOT unplug the wires. You car will NOT start if you do. Advise if the box is there, and I will provide info to disable the system.
