If the numbers on the two computer are the same, it should work. If they are different numbers, you may need to take it to a mechanic shop with the proper equipment needed to reprogram it.
I am curious as to why you bought a new computer; Did the old ecu die and not want to light up the check engine light or start the jeep any longer? If so, you could've had it repaired instead of buying another one and now possibly having to pay even more to reprogram it.

I need to put a window in jeep grand cher., 1995....can I do it myself? How?

From my experience, if you are selective (don't use autoflite) it is just as cheap to take it to a smaller auto window place if you live in a larger town.

I replaced the rear window in my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee myself and by the time I bought all the little accessories and the time it was down, it would have been about $35 cheaper for me to have it done by my local small glass shop. Glass shops must get some great volume discounts, because it was cheaper through them than what I could order.

New remotes

Assuming that this is concerning a 1996 Grand Cherokee, a new remote needs to be programmed via the Jeeps computer connector, It cannot be programmed by the user for this model.  If you buy the remote from the dealer, see if they will program it at no charge (they should).  If you bought it elsewhere, you will most likely have to pay for the programming.  I got a quote a few years ago for $30, but last week I answered the same question for another user and it cost them $60.  Yes, it is a rip-off especially since it takes just a few minutes.  Check with other repair shops as some may have the programing equipment needed, at a lower price.

1996 Grand Cherokee keyless entry problem

That remote should not be able to  be programmed by you, it needs to be programmed by the dealer using their computer.  I know that some later and earlier models can be programmed by the user, but I did some research on this as i have a 96 as well and it seems the 96 was a dealer computer thing.  If you in fact bought the remote from the dealer they should be willing to program it for FREE.  Otherwise I was given a $30 estimate for the programming.
