Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
I get 6 beeps Hood. Door open flashes really fast. All doors are closed tight. What do I do to fix this problem
No year, now that makes this very hard,...????????????
I roll my dice and land on 2007+ GC
must be the non EVIC display option car, as the fancy display tells you.
but like mine, it only shows DOOR.
so which door.
well that is easy, or hard.
1: easy, connect scan tool bingo, you get scan DTC codes for door.
2: hard, use a voltmeter at every door switch , bingo, bad switch or wire or corroded connector

There is a problem with the door switch the door is not pushing the switch in completely. Here is what you do close all the doors, then you open them one at a time with all the other still closed. start with the drivers door. open and look for the pin with that the door touches when you close its on the bottom close to the back of the driver's seat it has a black rubber covering it. Press with your thumb in and see if light goes out. Check all other doors in the same way you will see which door switch is not being pressed in completely when door closes. If you find it a quick fix is to pad the area on the door that makes contact with the switch to push it in, for example you can use one of those round sticky cushions that you use on the metal chair legs to prevent them from scratching your wood floor. However if you can solve the problem in this way you may have to take it to electrical mechanic or I will be able to provide more help. contact me and leave me a feedback. Good LUCK

i went thru a considerable amount of relays in my windstar. I would suggest stopping by a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and picking up a handfull of relays for the windstar/freestar. look under the dash in the fuse panel for the relays and replace any in the circuits affected. if you are in luck the relay circuits will be shown on the cover of the fuse panel.
if the problem is the sliding door... there are a row of circular copper contact points on the door jam as it slides shut as well as "fingers" on the door that make contact with them when you close the door. Use an eraser or similar to make sure the contacts are clean.
Do not overlook the relays in the engine compartment near the battery as a cause for some of the issues you are having.
as a side note... i dropped into my local ford dealer and talked nicely to the parts guy.... he gave me a print out of all the fuses/relays and their locations which was a huge help. give that a try.
let me know how you made out.... and take a moment if this was a successful fix to rate this solution.. thanks
P.S. i was able to manage almost 400,000 kms from my windstar before i sold it. and the only issue it had then was that it would not stay running (a fairly easy fix)

The problem you are experiencing is the drivers side interior light switch is not working. This is usually found in the door latch on later model cars and usually requires the complete latch mechanism changing. However it would pay to check that your car doesn't have a pin switch fitted in the pillar.Unfortunately I think you have the former.

CAR ALARM ISSUES
can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but
the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again
else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact
with alarm wiring causing it to happen.
last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere
are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems.
I suggest going through these links.

It appears that the driver's door operated switch is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the warning light coming on and the beeping noise alerting that the vehicle has a door not closed properly.
It could mean the door catch is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little moreand the indications should stop. If door catch is tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to still make contact. If adjusting the door catch and/or fixing rubber do not fix problem then it could be that the door switch or associated wiring is faulty. To check, try operating the switch plunger by hand, with the door open, to see if the light and chime cease. If operating switch manually still does not stop indications then it means that the wire to the door switch is shorting to the body some where. If switch appears to be faulty, you could try swapping it with one of the other door switches to see if that solves your problem
