Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The first thing to do is make sure the battery is fully charged, next is the factory alarm, this alarm is controled by a clicker or can also be turned off by the door lock with the key, now sometimes the switch wears out on the driverside door and will not turn alarm off so try to lock and unlock the passenger door, also the other alarm you removed did you connect the power starter wire after removing. if you look at the steering column after removing covers and lower dash panel you will see wires going to ignition switch, this is where the main wirng for an alarm goes now i think its a yellow wire but you will see the wire cut in half that the way it disables the alarm then they conect to alarm you need to connect the cut wire back together, the two halfs of the wire will be the same color, after that if it doesnt start then we will need to test for power at the starter, have someone hold key in the crank position as if they are starting jeep while they hold key use a testlight to see if you are getting power to the small wire on the back of the starter, if theres power and engine is not spinning then replace the starter, these steps should get this jeep going. one of these is the problem , hope this is helpful, good luck.
