The key is bad it has a chip in the key which is an anti theft feature. U would need the car towed to the dealer to have them program u a new key.

The alarm system is activated and won't turn off. How can I fix this?


what cant you do.
is this just the alarm and car starts and drives ok.?
or engine wont start.?
the only way to fix this is to test all door switches.
ever use a meter before, volts/ohms.
if not , it be very hard to fix.

the alarm can be shut down, the operators guide answers that
using the key at the drivers door, now its off.
lost the guide?

Security system conflict with remote start.


06 WK, in usa? WK is USA car, is yours? we cant guess
where you are or what JEEP you have,

why put this junk on ANY car,
after all if it takes 3 weeks for the magic man to fix the magic hacks
what good is a DEAD CAR.?!
and you did it to your self. all for nothing,
it does nothing.! (and causes extra engine wear, a FACT)
remove it.
or buy the scan tool and learn to diagnose it.

is the SKIM lamp flashing? or stuck on,

the official jeep upgrades are very strict here.
(lawsuits happen here in many ways.. .of you ponder it)

car not locked and all door switches closed, (alarm happy)
ECU /PCM shows no errors, no DTC errors. if yes, RS = dead.
there is the failed to start count rules. strike 3? IIRC, count#
and more, read the service manual it covers all ways it can fail.
its a huge list. (no transmission errors of any kind allowed)
and is mandatory by law, to prevent thrift and to not have car drive away by self.. (many have)

good luck
if I had it , it be in the trash, long ago.

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

When you try to start it the alarm goes off. It starts, then dies.


Sounds like the alarm is shutting down the engine. Try disabling alarm system but depends how it's wired in what it effects.

Alarm goes off for no reason. 97 Jeep grand Cherokee.


There is a security system built-in to the Jeep Grand Cherokee during these years. The reason the alarm goes off is because of a change in the electrical system (like shutting a door) that triggers the alarm. To stop the alarm, either disarm with the remote or unlock the door from the outside with the key. This will shutoff the alarm.

How can I reset my Factory Alarm on my Jeep it wont run


Alarm Module Reset Procedure
NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.
When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.
The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.
Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the lift gate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.
Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.
