Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
There's no good way to disconnect the alarm but you can fix your problem. The door switches are most often the cause of this problem, The rear hatch not closing good and or any of the doors the drivers door most as it's the one you use the most. The switches have a rubber boot on them and it sometimes gets torn and rusing inside the switch makes the switch unreliable. The switches can be bought at most auto parts stores. The driver door one has to cycle but you can cross the one for the rear hatch if you have too. the dashboard display o some models may even show which door is doing it as you can watch the display or have someone watch it for you with the doors closed and go around the car pushing and pulling on the closed doors till the light changes. the other problem is sometimes the wire harness where it goes though the door to the car on the driver door the wires wear thin and braek and still connect sometimes. the wires can be found by pushing the rubber cover back and pulling on them and a bad one will break, of corse your opening pandoras box in that you might break a wire the was good, The repair needs notr be in the bend of the door though you need to remove the door panel and the kick panel and conect the repair there and new wire tough the bending area.

Unlock all of the Jeep 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.
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 car ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.
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!
