1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Alarm system

How do I shut off the alarm system without the remote(short of disconnecting the batery terminal,etc.,etc.)?I thought there was a sequence I could follow using the key in the lock to disable it.

    I was given a sequence using the key in the lock,turning it in a certain sequence (like left right left) but I cannot remember what it is.I really do need this sequence(and I don't remember what site gave me the info.).Thank you.

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    What do you mean is this a test? I don't want to have to climb up under the hood everytime this alarm engages.that is why I am looking for the key sequence.

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    It didn't work (this time..I remembered it was the left right left right combo Thanks!!) but the alarm is stil engaged but only with the lights flashing and the ignition disengaged.I got some information about removing the relay but it says the vehicle needs to be running before removal. Any help? Thanks!!

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    B.T.W.: the horn part is not working(?) now..it is not sounding.I have removed the battery terminal to reset it and it hasn't helped.

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    I tried disconnecting the battery terminal,tried the left right left right key sequence(by the back door did you mean the back hatch door? I tried them all),all to no avail.Now the lights flash and the ignition is disengaged but the horn alarm part is off. But I still can't get the alarm disengaged.Help!!

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    The comment is for anyone who can help me. The info about removing the relay said to only do it when the car is running,which I cannot do until the alarm is disengaged.See the conundrum?

  • laadyhawke May 14, 2008

    Ok..pulled the module/relay and still no luck...tries to start but of course can't because of the alarm system.I even pulled the remote relay in the headliner..no luck. Now what?

Solution 1
1) Remove the driver door panel 2) Remove the lock 3) Remove the switch from the back of the lock 4) Pull the switch cord assembly to the bottom of the door cavity 5) Unplug and remove the switch assembly from the car 6) Either (a) short the female end of the plug, or (b) ground the striped wire to the car door.

Solution 2
Normally, you would insert the key in the drivers door, turn left, then right to disarm and reset it. If yours is malfunctioning, you can disable it for good by doing the following:

The FACTORY ALARM DISARM WIRE IS purple/yellow |-| in the driver kick panel area, at the black plug.
Once Located, splice into this wire with a simular guage wire, and put it to a solid chassis ground. This terminates the alarm functions entirely.

Solution 3
Go to the passenger side door and lock/unlock 2 or 3 times to deactivate the alarm switch in the door latch. If battery is weak/low it wont solve problem, must replace battery.also check for broken hood pin switch($5.00) as they are likely to be broken on a 94 veh. and when failed will cause security system to activate causing security light on dash and no start condition/lights flashing etc

    Solution 4
    Open the driver's side door, push the door lock and lock the doors. Close the door, then wait about 30 seconds, unlock the driver's side door with the key. If this doesn't work lock the doors again and
    wait then unlock the passenger door with the key. and then the liftgate
    if that doesn't work.

    Well, hope one of them works!

You could also pull the plug from the factory alarm control module thus taking it totally out of the system. It is behind the glove box (the furthest module on the left... attached with 2 screws. It seems like a PITA job, but it is really not too bad if you have a phillips head screwdriver and about 45 mins to 1 hour.

You will need to remove the dash, the radio/center console bezel, and then finally you can get to the glove box. I'll give you the rundown if you want to go this route.

First, you will need to remove the screws holding the front of the dashpad down. There are 3 screws along the top of the bezel around the instrument cluster, 2 screws along the top of the radio/center console bezel, and 2 screws along the top of the inside of the glove box.

Next, gently pry the center defrost bezel (along the back of the dash pad near the winshield - be careful, mine has two sensors attached: auto headlights and the temperature). Once that is removed unhook the two sensors and remove the defrost bezel.

Underneath the defrost bezel you will find 4 screws holding the dash down, remove those. Now you have removed all the screws holding your dash in place. In order to make it easier to lift the dash out of the car, you might want to remove the side pillar trim pieces (they are the plastic pieces that run from the dash to the headliner on both sides). They are held on by two metal 'snap-type' fittings, so you just need to genly pull on them and they will separate. Now, the only thing holding your dash in place are two 'snap type' fittings one on the forward drivers side edge and one on the forward passengers side edge. Genlty pull up on the dash in these areas and they will separate. Now you can remove the dash. (It sounds like a lot of work, but it took me longer to type this than actually doing it).

Once the dash is off, you will need to remove the radio/center console bezel. This is held on by 6 screws (2 of which you already removed). Remove the middle two screws, and then remove the ash tray to uncover the bottom two screws. Remove those and you can gently pry out the bezel. There is will be a connection for the cigarette lighter - you can unplug or just simply move the bezel out of the way slightly. The only reason to remove this is so that you can uncover one of the screws holding the glove box on.

Now you are finally ready to remove the glove box. First pull of the fuse panel cover door and the side demister boot (rectangular black thing above the fuse panel - just snaps in place, so pull gently to remove). Now open the glove box and remove the 3 screws along the front that hold the relay cover in place. You can remove that piece and set it aside. Next remove the four screws along the underside of the glove box (when looking up from the passenger side floor). Then remove the screw along the left edge of the glove box - lower left corner (the one that was hidden by the radio/console bezel). Now, there are 4 screws along the top that were hidden by the dash (the whole reason you had to pull the dash). Remove those and you can pull the glove box. There is a connection for the light - unhook that and you can take the whole glove box out and set aside.

Now to find the alarm relay. When looking at the cavity behind the glove box you should see some relays (turn signal, hazard, etc) that would normally be accessed by removing the cover inside the glove box. These are on the right side. In the center there will be a box that is approximately the size of a pack of cigarettes mounted by two screws. You will need to remove those screws and pull that box out of the way. The alarm module is the next cigarette size box to the left. It is mounted partly behind the plastic that makes up the front edge of the cavity by two screws. Remove those screws and you can pull the alarm module out. It has a 16 pin (I'm pretty sure) connector that you can unplug. That should totally remove the alarm from your system.

Let me know if you need any further help, good luck

    there should be two wires inside the door panel

    If you strip some of the insulation off the purple/yellow wire and
    take a separate piece of wire to tap into it with one end and ground
    the other this should disable the alarm. You just need to ground the system.

I think you must find wiring harness diagram or service manual.
Otherwise better take it to an authorized service station to solve this problem.

The alarm should shut off when you disconnect the battery, unless the alarm system has another powersource.

Is this a test?

Alarm wont stop going off. Car wont start. Any way to disable it?


Plug your ears first, open the car with key, open the bonnet to get to the battery, disconnect one battery terminal and cover this with rag to avoid a short circuit. That should reset everything - alarm, radio. Do not lock the car. After an hour reconnect the battery. Hopefully alarm will have reset and then use the key in the ignition. Hopefully starts but you should buy a replacement button for your car and security system. If alarm sound again, disconnect battery again and call an auto electrician.

Sounds like something lost programming or maybe the positive wire touched the negative terminal by accident and shorted something out. Do you have an aftermarket alarm or remote starter?
