Can not disarm alarm on 2002 jeep grand cherokee

Hi guys, please help me. I've pressed the button for unlock the doors (as usual) but the drivers door doesn't opened. I opened it with the key and the alarms start, with the horn and lights. I tried to start the engine but after 3 seconds it stops. I think that I can't turn off the alarm. Can you help me?

    Hey,
    Two basic questions:
    Is the transmiter the remote key, ok?
    Where is located the receiver dome?
    My car is far away,
    Thanks for the help

    Pressing the remotes keys all others doors became open and closed, only the drivers door doesn't.

  • superbabaman Jul 26, 2009

    Beside, can I do these re-programme with the alarm sounds, horn and lights?

  • Rob Sinpasit May 11, 2010

    you cant change or reprogram the alarm sound horn and light, its factory installed and nothing can be change. Transmitter is your key-less remote. if driver door is the only one giving you the problems, before you replace expensive remote module, i would replace your driver side door lock solenoid motor and get one from the junk yard first, it might be going bad.

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..

SOURCE: can not disarm alarm on 1997 jeep grand cherokee

This seems to be a common problem with this body style Grand Cherokee. There are 3 ways to disarm the alarm system on this vehicle. You have to unlock the drivers door with the key, unlock the rear liftgate with the key or unlock the vehicle using the keyless entry remote. If none of these three things disarm your system then your problem is most likely the security system module itself. The module is red and located behind the dash on the 92 - 95 model Grand Cherokees. The Dash was redesigned in 1996 for dual airbags and a more streamline appearance. On the 96 - 98 models, I am not sure where this module is located.

SOURCE: how doyou disarm the factory alarm system in a

The security alarm system on the 1994 Jeep Cherokee arms itself on any normal exit from the vehicle, i.e. ignition off, open door, lock door with power door locks, close door. If the doors are locked with the key, it does not arm.
If the battery is disconnected, then reconnected, the alarm system will go into powerup alarm mode. The lights will flash, but the horn will not blow.
The alarms can be disarmed by a keyless vehicle remote or by unlocking either of the front doors or the read lift gate with the key. If the key method does not work with any of those three entrances, there is a problem either with the input to the alarm module or the module itself.
There is a switch in both front doors and the tailgate which is activated by manualy unlocking those doors. The alarms can be disabled by permanently grounding the wire going from either of those switches to the alarm module, but this will remove all theft protection.
The best thing to do is to find out why the system is going off in the first place. It could just be a glitch, a loose connection that can be fixed fairly easily and keep your theft protection intact.

How do I disarm my 2011 jeep grand cherokee alarm? It keeps going off randomly and my remote doesn't shut it off


GOT OPTION "ENTER AND GO"???????????????
did you use both FOBS. car came with 2, try using both , one at a time and not both near car as SAME time. ever.

mines turned off for ever,
i never armed it.
so page what.
wow 6 owners manuals, 4 for Uconnect, wow. pain.
page 22. read that?
sure.
is this not clear ,quoted
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you
remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE
transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed
(after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit,
the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm. You may also accidentally sound the
Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver's door
with the key and then opening the door

good luck deciphering this page, wow.!
page 23 is NO ENTER AND GO', OPTION.
Either press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter,
pull on the front driver or passenger door handle (refer to
"Keyless Enter-N-Go" in "Things To Know Before Starting
Your Vehicle" for further information) with a valid
key fob in range, or press the Keyless Enter-N-Go Start/
Stop button (requires at least one valid Key Fob in the
vehicle), or insert a valid Key Fob into the ignition switch
(if the Start/Stop button is removed) and rotate it to the
ON/RUN position.

END QUOTES FROM YOUR GUIDE.
if all this fails get jeep to fix it. (the magic is broken so...)
or ask them to explain, page 23 , in non GREEK..

Hi there:
Open the drivers door and turn the key to the on position. Lock the doors with the switch on the door. After the doors lock point the transmitter to the little bulb on the ceiling. Press the LOCK button and hold it until the doors unlock.

there is only two ways to disarm the system passively. 1 to unlock the drivers door with the key and then get in shut the door and hit the unlock button for all other locks,. or hit the panic button on the transmitter for the unlock and lock switch for the car , the panic button will kick the horn relay and flasher relay for 3 minutes then re-ste and also passivley disarm the system. the only other option is to take it to the dealer and have it taken off by the DBR3 code box.

lock with key,electric door lock button,or remote and alarm will set. to disarm you have to use the key or remote to open it.the reason it woulnt disarm from drivers door is either the door lock cylinder switch is broken or the wire to it in the rubber boot that connects the door and the body is broken.
the remotes are cheap and programing is easy,procedure in owners manuel something like lock drive door with elkect. lock switch with door open then push and hold unlock untill doors unlock then turn key off.you may have to fix that drive door lock cyl.switch first though mabee not dont know for sure
