Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Wife got out of the 1995 Grand cherokee ltd. somehow got into programming sequence apparently by pushing drivers lock manually and turning key back on. Now I have to get in and close the door to operate the power door locks. It used to be I could run these with the door open to lock it after getting out. I have a Haynes manual but it has nothing about the programming sequence. I know these can be complex from my 97 Olds. I have not found anywhere that posts the programming procedure for the door locks etc. No owners manual.

    I tried that, and tried the "lock everything and unlock the tailgate with the key". No joy. Appreciate your availability but if it's not the kind of thing that is posted. (security programming for the 1995 GC) then I might as well spend $20 on a used owners manual.

    It starts and runs fine, but no stereo (just flashes) and the big indicator display panel just flashes. Interestingly, if the interior light dimmer switch is pushed all the way to the right, the radio & big lcd panel go black, but. .fan doesn't work. I have a friend with a 97 so maybe he has a manual.

    This is fixed. It was a 20 Amp fuse. I think it was number 8, but I do not yet have a manual that tells me which fuse does what.

    What it caused was this:

    power Door locks don't work until you close the door and turn on the key.

    Stereo and big display panel flash about twice/second. resetting security didn't change anything. replaced fuse and it was all better.

  • kulkan Jun 26, 2009

    I agree. I expect something to "not work" when a fuse blows. When the owners manual arrives that I ordered I will find out what that fuse was for and post it here.

    It could never have been a broken wire as it was absolutely consistent and a broken wire wouldn't be. If I held in the button in the door frame up by the door hinges then the power locks would work with the door open.

    Odd problem, but jeep does strange electrical things (in the design). Only question remaining would be why did the fuse blow?

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    On some all you need to do is lock and unlock the drivers door using the key.

There is no programing for the locks to work only with the door closed. Look at the harness between the "A" pillar and the drivers door, you might have a wire broken. With the door open it may strecth the wire and loose contact and when you close the door the broken wire may make contact with the other half.

    • 1 Climb into your Jeep Grand Cherokee with your keyless remote(s) in hand and your manual ignition key. Do not close the driver's door.
    • 2 Hit the "Lock" switch on your driver's side door and insert the key into the ignition.
    • 3 Turn the key to the "Run" position and aim the keyless remote at the steering wheel. Press and hold the "Lock" button for five seconds.
    • 4 Wait for the locks to respond by cycling then program each successive remote (up to four total) by holding the lock until the locks respond. Each remote must be programmed within 20 seconds of the last.

    • 6 Turn the car off and remove the key from the ignition to complete the programming sequence.

      Unlock all of the Jeepicon1.png Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.

    • 2

      Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.

      Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the caricon1.png ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.

    • 4

      When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.

      Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!

Windows wont roll down

I suspecft this is a security programming situation. I have something similar going on with my '95. I have to get an owners manual to find the sequences. I stumbled into this by manually locking the front door and turning on the key with the door open.
re: the dash lights. I find if I have the interior light dimmer all the way to the right it locks out some things but moving it back to the middle puts it back in operational mode. aside from the flashing, non playing stero. At least I can drive it and powerlock the doors IF the doors are closed.

Not far fetched. The frequencies may bleed like a radio channel does when its not right on. Your two frequencies may be so close or one much stronger(other car) You should have it check before someone else notices it. Good luck

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Alarm system

There are switches on the door lock cylinders that are supposed to shut the alarm off when you use the key,but they go bad allot. you could try unlocking the passenger door first, since that one usually gets less use and is less likely to go bad. Otherwise you can disconnect the alarm module, it is located behind the glove box.
