Mine is doing the same thing. i was told that the module went out and has to be replaced. but they are not made anymore. so i am off to the wreaking yard to find one. my jeep guy said that the systems are getting old in these jeeps and starting to wear out. so my Q is what we should just throw them out and pay an arm and leg for a new rig. well that just sucks i love my jeep.

SOURCE: CAN'T BY PASS SECURITY ON

Hello: On you computer type in how to by-pass the VATS system. If you follow the step by step procedures your car will start unless you have problems other than the Pass Key 1 system. ie: fuel or ignition. You have to troubleshoot a problem before you can repair it.

SOURCE: I have a 96 jeep grand cherokee that won't hold a start

check your starter wire as mine was loose and did the same thing every time you interupt power to the alarm system it will flash the lights unlock the drivers door with the key and this will rearm the alarm and the jeep should start up if this is the problem rember to have good battery conections and a good batt first or else this will keep hapening also after 20 starts you may have to do the key thing again

SOURCE: jeep cranks but will not start.

sounds like you are experiencing electrical problems which have to do with your computer in your car and its ability to send signals all through out the engine. you have a loose connection in one of your wires somewhere possibly in the wiring harness. check that.

SOURCE: security light blinks car won't start

The process for the passlock relearn is correct. If by chance the relearn does not work, you may have a fail component in the system. Go to this link for options to fix this yourself.

Replaced battery in my 1993 jeep grandcherokee limited now security system seems to cut fuel off seconds after engin fires


Here's some info as it sound like the theft deterrent is armed.

---
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 liftgate. 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.

Try this. Lock and unlock the tail gate with the key and see if it will start. The battery must be hooked uo when this procedure is followed. Whenever the battery is disconnected, the security circuit shuts the ignition down.
When you hook up any battery, make certain that you connect the positive battery cable first and negatvie (ground) second.

I don't know about a dedicated fuse but you can try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then, with the battery still disconnected, turn the ignition key to on, then reconnect the battery. This has been a known way to also disarm the factory security.
If that doesn't work, and if you are handy with vehicle electrical, you can ground the factory disarm wire, to permanently disarm the factory security. It's location and color;
