No clue as the manufacturer of the alarm? Inside the fob, is there anything or the main unit for the alarm. It has to have that information on it.

Pull the battery cables, hold them together for 3-5 minutes, this resets the cpu in the car. That should fix it.

SOURCE: Can not disarm alarm on 2002 jeep grand cherokee

First, try to re-programme the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) transmitters before searching for anything else. Assure that the batteries in the transmitters are in working condition and replace them if you are not sure. To pro-gramme the transmitters, perform the following:

Open the driver's door and let it be open throughout the programming process. Then, shift the mechanical door lock lever to the LOCK mode, turn the ignition key to the rUN mode. Within a period of twenty seconds, point a transmitter at the receiver dome and push the lock button for a period of five seconds at least. After the receiver has accepted the programming code the driver's door will unlock on its own. The first transmitter has been programmed, in the same extra transmitters up to four may be programmed in the same way, within twenty seconds.
If the alarm does not work properly, you may have a faulty alarm module and may have to be replace and its common problems with and older model. the systems work like a security systems, if you arms your system with the remote you have to disarm it also with the remote in order for the engine to start and run. The logic in the PCM prevents the VTSS engine no-run feature from arming until the engine start; Its one of the security systems jeep has and if you ask for my opinion its junk. hope that help some..

Jeep Cherokee Limited Crank, No Start
Q. Hi! The Jeep has periods when it will not start for a couple days (cranks fine but won't fire), then it will mysteriously start again. A friend suggested that it may be the CPS - I checked it has 200 oM - when I'm cranking by hand it's little bit changing - it should be OK. But again, wouldn't this also effect the engine during those times that it was running?
mechanic.jpg This problem occurs during rainy and sunny weather so I don't think it's a moisture or water intrusion problem. Is there any part of the ignition system that only affects starting that could be causing this problem?

I found some forum where some guy had the same:
"I am having the same or similar problem with my wifes 1990 Cherokee. I have found a place that tests the ICM. It may take a while to find a place in your area. I suggest you go in person and talk to the people in your better parts stores.
I have been unsuccessful so far in finding the fault. My ICM has been tested twice and passed both times. I have power to the ICM and the coil checks within parameters. This has been a very frustrating problem for me. I'm about ready to drive it off a cliff and call it a day. Good luck."

So my question is; what is the reason of that? Thanks for help...

A. This was a widespread problem for Chrysler and they issued a couple of TSBs to address the problem. The first was:
Models:
1989 MJ & XJ Bodies
Subject:
4.0L No-Start, Hard Restart, or Engine Die-Out. Vehicles Equipped With Automatic Transmission Only.
Index:
DRIVEABILITY
Date: December 29, 1989 No.: 18-57-89 (C18-23-9) P-14 Body Code Legend:
MJ - COMANCHE (RWD, 4WD) XJ - CHEROKEE/WAGONEER (RWD, 4WD)
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Some 1989 vehicles equipped with the 4.0L engine and automatic transmission may experience an engine no-start, hard restart, or an engine die-out. This condition may be caused by low signal strength from the crank position sensor due to a larger than desired distance to the flywheel sensing ring.
DIAGNOSIS:
42257289.gif Check to see if the vehicle has a slotted crank position sensor:
  1. If the vehicle is equipped with a slotted crank position sensor (see Figure 1), check to see if the CPS grommet on the top of the transmission bell housing has been updated (see Figure 2). If the CPS grommet has not been updated, replace the CPS grommet per the Repair Procedure outlined below.
If the vehicle has a slotted crank position sensor and new CPS grommet, do not install a new sensor, but reinstall the slotted sensor that was on the vehicle and verify that it is good using procedures in the 1989 Jeep Service Manual 81-370-9045 on page 14-87.
  1. If the vehicle does not have a slotted crank position sensor already installed, then proceed with the Repair Procedure.
PARTS REQUIRED:
1 Crank Position Sensor (slotted) P/N 83100067 1 Crank Position Sensor Grommet P/N 83100068 REPAIR PROCEDURE:
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the "OFF" position.
  2. Disconnect the Crank Position Sensor (CPS) from the engine harness.
  3. Raise the vehicle using a lift.
  4. Remove the old CPS and grommet.
  5. Install the new CPS grommet.
NOTE: THE NEW CPS GROMMET MUST BE REPLACED SO THAT THE MAXIMUM SIGNAL OUTPUT CAN BE OBTAINED FROM THE NEW CRANK POSITION SENSOR.
  1. Install the new Crank Position Sensor and loosely attach the retaining bolts.
  2. Firmly press down on the slotted hole side of the CPS until it bottoms on the machined lip of the bellhousing. While holding the CPS down against the bellhousing, tighten the bolt on the slotted side of the CPS to 16 ft.lbs.
  3. Tighten the remaining attaching bolt to 16 ft.lbs.
NOTE: MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR IS COMPLETELY BOTTOMED ON THE MACHINED LIP OF THE BELLHOUSING AND IS AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THE FLYWHEEL SENSING RING WITHOUT CONTACTING IT.
  1. Secure the lead of the CPS to the retaining clip on the bellhousing to prevent its contact with the exhaust manifold.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Connect the CPS to the engine harness.
If this repair has been made, or hasn't fixed the problem, the other TSB is 18-54-89 REVISION A recommending cleaning of the throttle body assembly, DIY: Cleaning Throttle Bodies, and replacement of the PCM.
PARTS REQUIRED:
1 ECU (Automatic Transmission) P/N 53007842 1 ECU (Manual Transmission) P/N 53007843 1 Mopar Choke and Linkage Cleaner P/N 4549619

My alarm will not go off when set and the door gets opened. think it may be in vallet mode. how do i fix it?


Hi EWD, If it was in valet mode the alarm would not go off. I believe you have a problem with the alarm system. Let us know if the unit is after market or factory fitted. try first to replace the battery in the key fob. Regards John

I had to replace the ingetion on my a 2000 neon due to a lost key. how do i bypass the alaram system to keep the car running


If you had an ignition with a security chip key and you replaced it with an ignition that doesn't have that function (I believe it was a gray key in 2000) then your options are 1: replace the ECM or 2: Replace the ignition yet again with the correct ignition type. That security system is built into the ECM and there is no bypass. If that is an after market alarm, not common with this restriction, remove the cut off from the ignition wires or disable the alarm but cutting the power wire.

Is there an alternate way to disarm my explorer?


Well I believe you are asking other ways to disable the alarm.
Your alarm should reset after 1-2 minutes.
If this is an aftermarkert alarm you will have a fuse that you can pull to disable the alarm either under the hood or under the dash. Some will have a toggle under the dash.
If this is a factory alarm look in the owners manual or check with your local dealer service department for which fuse to pull.
Usually all you have to do is to take the key and lock and unlock the door.
Hope this answer is to your needs.

Motor mount, front right, solid or hydraulic?


Hello wrygrl...The OEM (orginal equipment) passenger side motor mount for the 1988 olds ninety-eight was a hydraulic type. After market "solid" type mounts are available for replacement...either type will work. Shop around and get some price quotes, i believe westar makes a solid type mount that sells for around 22 bucks.
Hope this answers your question. Have a safe and happy memorial day weekend.
