Question about Car APS997A Two-Way Remote Start and Security System

1 Answer

Aps997a problem This remote start/alarm has been installed on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 2 months now. It was working fine until just recently. I hit the remote start on it and it didn't start it. I waited about a minute and tried it again. This time the two way lcd didn't prompt me that anything happened. I was about 30 ft from the vehicle. I walked over to it and hit the unlock button to get inside but it didn't unlock. Tried again. Nothing. And again, nothing. So I manually unlocked the door and got in and started it with the key. While the vehicle is running I hear a constant ticking sound and the alarm light(the led that lets you know the system is armed) lightly blinks with the ticking sound. Also when this happened my windshield wipers stopped working. I'm thinking this is just a fuse problem or maybe the wiper motor is dead. Everything else works on the vehicle though. What is wrong with the remote start and keyless entry system? I would like to get this fixed as we are experiencing a typical MN winter with the -30 F weather!

Hi there:
Open the drivers door and turn the key to the on position. Lock the doors with the switch on the door. After the doors lock point the transmitter to the little bulb on the ceiling. Press the LOCK button and hold it until the doors unlock.
I suggest to check this article and this VIDEO link.


Good luck.

1997 jeep grand cherokee won't start after alarm went off


I just had the same prblem. Reconnect your alarm first of all. You need to use your key bob "remote" to deactivate the alarm before starting. It is a feature "good one" i might add that should someone try to steal it the jeep will not start until u deactivate it w theke bob.

MY 96 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO, RUNS FINE, BUT THE COURTESY LIGHTS EITHER CLICK OFF AND ON OR JUST STAY ON. ALSO , WHEN I DRIVE, THE LOCKS CLICK FROM LOCKED TO UNLOCKED ALMOST CONTINUOSLY.. MY ALARM


The problem is the remote. What I think is happening.... is that the battery in the remote controls all those same functions that you are now manually controlling with your key. The reason the alarm works without the remote is that it is powered by the actvation of the power locks. Go put battery in your remote and I would just about guarantee you that everything will work the way it is supposed to... I wish you good luck. and God Bless\

Cant get 1996 jeep grand cherokee to start after alarm stopped


The alarm might have a relay to kill the ignition. Disconnect the negative or ground from the battery, wait five minutes then connect it again. This is to try and restart the alarm. Then lock and unlock the car to get the remote in sync. Try and operate your vehicle now and let me know.

Alarm goes off for no reason. 97 Jeep grand Cherokee.


There is a security system built-in to the Jeep Grand Cherokee during these years. The reason the alarm goes off is because of a change in the electrical system (like shutting a door) that triggers the alarm. To stop the alarm, either disarm with the remote or unlock the door from the outside with the key. This will shutoff the alarm.
