Try locking and unlocking the driver side door using the key...most often that is all you will need to do.

    If lock / unlock does not work, try grounding the lavender wire that comes through the rubber tunnel from the drivers door. that often will disable the system. if it works, permanently ground it.

I have a factory installed alarm on my 2003 jeep cherokee ,how do i disable alarm


Hello! The drivers side door lock/unlock switch is more than likely defective...Having said that, the alarm system on Jeeps are a constant problem...To disable the system requires removing the drivers door panel and cutting the Light Green/Orange wire at the switch...And installing a 465 Ohm resistor...Not something done without the necessary skills...
I would have the vehicle towed to a Jeep dealer and have them test the drivers door switch and disable the alarm....Guru...saailer

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee. i went to start it the other day and the alarm started goin off and it ran for a few seconds and then died. is there a way to disconnect the alarm so it will stay running...


If you use the original key to lock & unlock it from the tailgate and then try starting it, it should reset the system. Be aware that when it this begins to happen more often, it is usually an indication of the battery getting weak & losing the onboard memory for the security memory. If you are using an aftemarket key this may continue to shut down because the security system does not recognize an uncoded key.

Not sure why you disconnected the battery to replace plugs, but try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. That should re-set the security system.

ALARM KEEPS GOING OFF ON 95 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, FACTORY INSTALLED SECURITY SYSTEM, HOW DO I COMPLETELY DISENGAGE THE SECURITY SYSTEM? CAN THIS BE DISENGAGED AND THE POWER LOCKS AND WINDOWS STILL WORK


disconnecting it may cause more problems!!
have you had your battery checked??
if the battery voltage drops too low while just sitting there, it will sometimes cause the alarm to go off!!!

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

Factory security system


I had an aftermarket alarm on a Wrangler and encountered the same problem. With the car off I disconnected the battery, then pulled the fuse(s) for the alarm. I waited to reconnect the battery for about 10 minutes because the computer can hold memory with no power source for a short amount of time. (I did not put the alarm fuses back in.) This disables the alarm, but atleast the Jeep started.

Security System


I have a 5.2L V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee and i know to reset my security system i actually have to go around to the passenger side door and lock and then unlock it again. Seems fairly odd but that's how i was told it was reset. Give it a go and lemme know!
