Windows dont go down and alarm never resets after putting in new batteries

The alarm remote needed new batteries and once installed it never worked again...at the same time..the windows wouldn't go down and sometimes the alarm activates and sometimes it doesn't. The windows, samething...sometimes they go down and sometimes they don't. I don't understand this...also now the interior lights don't go on while opening or existing the vehicle????

The Grand cherokee's are known for the wiring in the drivers door jam breaking! The only good fix is replacing the wiring but the only way to do that is to replace the whole body wiring harness. Or you can do like I do at the dealer is to pull the wiring back into the cab thru the drivers kick panel and replace/fix the broken wires.

Try replacing the window switch first, it's the cheapest repair.... If not you may need a window motor.

My keyless entry remote stopped working so i had unlock the door through a cracked window.... the alarm went off, but when i started it, the alem didnt stop.... now when i dont lock it and open the door or...


yes the remotes do have batteries. how ever that might be your problem or the remotes lost its code for programing. step when turning alarm off---- if its a factory alarm put the key in the drivers door when the door is closed and lock then unlock it thats the manuel shut down for factory. step 2------- aftermarket alarm. look for a valet switch most likely it would be installed by the driver kick panel or by the under dash fuse box. when u find it put the key into the ignition. turn it to the run position. within 3 seconds press and hold the valet switch for 3 to 5 seconds you should here a confirmation chirp and the led light will stay on solid and wont blink give it a world let me know what happens

My Car wont let me start it


Well, my mom found a little button underneath the dash board on the drivers side. And I guess its kind of like the reset button. So she pushed it and started the car and it was fine!

Changed the battery. The alarm went off, tried to reset but will not work. When driving push on the brakes and the car shut down. Is this an alarm issue or an electrical engine issue. Don't know what to...


Yes this is an Alarm issue that's why your vehicle is shutting down as soon as you press on the brake pedal. Is this an aftermarket alarm or stock alarm? Sounds like aftermarket alarm to me and if it is, the way fix this issue is as soon as you put the red n black terminal on the battery and the alarm goes off press your alarm key right away to turn it off. If this doesn't work put your key on the ignition after you have installed the battery and just put it on the "ON" position engine OFF then click on your alarm remote once again.
