    i have the same problem with my 2000 grand cherokee, only it makes a funny noise like there is a problem with some kind of motorized mechanism. it makes this noise every time i lock or unlock the doors, but now i can not open the lift gate

    this is a rather common problem for Jeep Grand Cherokees -- 1995-1996. The only solution I can offer is to remove the inside panel on the tail gate. That's fairly easy. There are several screws that have to be removed. Pry loose the upper part of the inside panel, or remove it entirely. You'll see the "travel rod" which unlocks the door and you'll be able to move the rod to release the door lock. I haven't put my interior panel back on -- it's simply more convenient to have ready access to the lock mechanism!

This is a partial solution. Remove the inside panel on the tail gate -- simply remove several screws and pop off the panel. yes, you might break some plastic clips. That exposes the locking mechanism and it's a simple matter to open the tail gate from the inside now. See the rod with the threaded fitting? Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to adjust the rod that operates the lock, so I've just left the inside panel off for now ;-)

    I think I have the answer now. Pop the rod out of the clamp and pull up on the arm to take up as much of the slack as possible. Then pop the rod back into place in the clamp.

Why does my tail gate window won,t lock when locking up car


If the flipup glas can still be opened with the button after locking the car, then the problem is with the limit switch in the tailgate lock motor.

Keyless remote 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo programing


Instructions
  1. Programming the First Transmitter
    • 1

      Unlock all of the Jeepicon1.png 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.

    • 2

      Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.

    • 3

      Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the caricon1.png ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.

    • 4

      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.

    • 5

      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!

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.
