If it is a factory alarm you can't unhook it. Replace the switch attached to the lock cylinder inside the door. In the meantime, the switch on the passenger door may still be good. Cycle the key in the passenger door to see if it turns off the alarm.

Programing Sentry keys:
1. Dealer-Programming additional Sentry Keys (requires ONE original key)
In situations where only one key is available, keys must be programmed by the dealer via the Secured Access Method. The Secured Access method applies to all vehicles. This method requires the use of a DRBIIIt scan tool and will also require that you have access to the unique four-digit PIN code that was assigned to the original SKIM. The PIN code must be used to enter the Secured Access Mode in the SKIM. This PIN number may be obtained from the vehicle owner, from the original vehicle invoice, or from the DaimlerChrysler Customer Center. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information for the proper Secured Access method programming procedures.
2. Self-Programming additional Sentry Keys (requires TWO original keys)
"A" through "G" below is a quick summary of the steps that are required for programming. Following this list, "1" through "6" takes you through the same process in greater detail.
A. Purchase a blank key and have it cut
B. Insert original key #1 into ignition and turn to On
C. Wait 5 seconds and turn key to off
D. Immediately insert original key # 2 into ignition and turn to on
E. Wait 10 seconds for SKIS indicator in dash starts to flash
F. Turn ignition off, insert new blank key and turn ignition back on
G. Once SKIS light stops flashing and turns off, your new key is programmed
You can find more details in Sentry Key® Immobilizer System (SKIS)
Hope helped with this information (remember rated this help) Good luck.

SOURCE: The alarm system was activated
False activation of the factory security system is caused in most cases by a defective door switch or a battery that has dropped below about 10 volts, so your choices for why the system activated are this, one of the door lock switches is defective and the system sensed a break in (key not being turned in lock) or the battery ran down and set the alarm off (have the load battery tested by a Kragen or Autozone, it is free) or the security system has some other malfunction, in the case of the battery being the cause the alarm should have shut down after 5 minutes or so. Here is what you should do have the battery tested as I suggested, replace or fully recharge it, I suspect the battery will be found to be defective, then to reset the the system use the door key and lock and then unlock the passenger door, if this doesn't reset the system the dealer will need to scan the system to see where the malfunction is, the defective part will set a fault code.

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!
