Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Anti theft system

I want to disable. I have been told to splice into the purple wire with the yellow strip in the drivers door boot, and take it to ground. That worked, but the interior lights stay on. I was told to try the passenger side. I did, but got the same results. Any suggestions?

    Is it a factory system?? If so it is integrated into many of the cars systems, I do not recommend you bypass it.

Disarming the anti theft system in a 1996 Chrysler Concorde so I can drive my car


Disconnecting the Factory Alarm should not be done, as there are a number of components that is connected to it (Lights, Horn, Ignition, Door Locks, etc.)
It would be better if you "disabled" it
Find the LIGHT GREEN / ORANGE wire located in the harness in the Driver Kick Panel / Door Boot area.

Remove the Driver Kick Panel next to door & the connector should be in that area

Do not cut in half,
Splice in one end of the piece of wire to the LIGHT GREEN / ORANGE wire
Connect the other end of the piece of wire to Ground, to a part of vehicles frame

at this link tells disarm wire color.

Intermittent alarm going off, can I disable the alarm sounder.?


Yes.... There are many options but few work. This will definitely work. Just had to do it today. In drivers side door kick panel there is a Purple/Yellow wire. Splice it and run a wire from the splice to a ground. Turn the key and start engine. Works.

  • Hi, You should be able to stick the key into the ignition and turn the key all the way back and then all the way forward to reset the PATS system.
  • If not the Ford will have to reset this with their scanner.
  • In the mean time their is a harness that spans the drivers door and door frame. Also located in the drivers kick panel. Look for the green/purple (-) Splice a wire into either on and send it to a good chassis ground and this will disable the alarm.
  • I recommend just having it towed to Ford and have them work their voodoo on it with their scanner.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.
this is from the manual its the alarm wiring diagram.

Factory Alarm System is killing the battery and I want to disable it because I don't have the original key with the chip to shut off alarm.


Okay so here's what you do...take driver side door panel off and look for a purple and yellow wire in the wire bundle. Cut this wire and using a ring connector, strip and crimp connector on end of wire running from the front of the door (i.e. hinge side of door). Using a self tapping screw, screw the ring connector into the metal behind the door panel....you are basically grounding the alarm system. Wrap the other end of the cut purple and yellow alarm wire with electric tape and your done. If you don't want to take the door apart you can also access the purple and yellow wire in the driver side kick panel at the black plug....you would follow the same procedure as you would for the door. Good Luck!

When i open door alarm goes off and won't let me start car


There are two possibilities. First, and easiest to check, is for a bad battery. While the battery has enough power to sound the alarm, it is too little for all other function. There's a very good chance your battery is bad, especially in this cold weather season.

If the battery is absolutley determined to be good, then you have to reset the factory anti-theft system. On way is very easy and the other not so easy.

Try the easy way which is to lock and unlock the rear hatch door. If that doesn't work, you'll have to go to the difficult way.

The PURPLE/YELLOW factory disarm wire is in the harness to the drivers door, inside the drivers kick, in a black plug. Locate this wire splice into it with the same guage wire, then ground it to a solid chassis point.

This takes out the factory alarm for however long you keep this wire grounded. It is the only other way I know of to get around the factory alarm system

Reset my anti theft system so my truck will start


If the theft light is flashing with the proper key in the ignition then either the chip in the key is bad or the transceiver on the ignition cylinder is faulty. The PATS system is built into the PCM.
