This is what you need to do: Unground the wire you mention. Close the hood and the liftgate and flipper glass. Close all doors. lock everything out. Wait 30 seconds. Insert the key en either front door or liftgate until the interior light comes on. Next open the driver door. Ground the wire you have mentioned, leave it grounded. Start the engine. That sequence should do it.

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..

Where is the fuel filter located, ona 99 jeep grand cherokee?


Hello,

There are 2 filters.
  1. One is on the end of the pickup tube inside of the gas tank.
  2. The second is in-line, above the front edge of the gas tank, inboard of the frame member. It is part of the fuel regulator/filter assembly.

Here's a diagram:

1997 jeep grand cherokee alarm going off at night


You may have left a door half open, or have a bad door switch. Until you find out what the problem is you can manually push your door locks with your hand to lock them without arming the alarm and still have your vehicle locked, and not have to worry bout hte alarm.

Security alarm


If you cant start it because of the alarm disconnect the battery, wait ten secs, reconnect then turn the key in the driver's door twice holding for 2 seconds on the second turn, this should reset the alarm.

I have a 95 Grand Cherokee, its got this built-in 'kill switch' (lol) that i had to figure out - the alarm wouldn't stop going off until i put the key in the driver door, then turned it Right-Left-Right...

Your probably already aware of this nuisance, but i thought i'd post it it just in case.
