Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I'm trying to turn down the sensitivity of my alarm system on my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and need help. I have the owner's manual and it says you need both keyless entry transmitters to change sensitivity settings but I only have one. I've had the dealership adjust it before and they only had one so I know there is a way.

Hold the time button down until the time blinks and you can use the Tuner to set the time. Push the tuner in to switch from Hours/Minutes and when you're done just wait till it stops blinking.
Here's the manual too if you want it.

I got this from their website.
Adjusting the Shock Sensor Sensitivity
To adjust the shock sensor, disarm the system, press and hold Button #3 (Finder) until the alarm chirps four times
(approximately five seconds), immediately release the button. Tap your vehicle’s hood above the alarm at the sensitivity
level you wish. The harder you hit the car the less sensitivity the alarm will be. The alarm will then chirp three
times. The shock sensor is now set at this sensitivity. Any shock that is equal to, or greater than this sensitivity,
will sound the alarm. Set the sensitivity as often as you wish; however, the sensitivity level will remain set until
the battery is disconnected or you reset it. If you do not tap the car it will automatically go to maximum sensitivity.
This setting is only acceptable if the car is parked inside a garage. NOTE: The factory setting on the shock sensor
should be acceptable for most vehicles.

I know it is annoying and frustrating to have this type of alarm problems, before you disable the alarm let's try to reset it.
In order to do this, let's set the alarm into valet/service mode, and try to reset the alarm to default mode.
Look under the dash area for a button or, a toggle switch. When you locate it, turn on the ignition key, press and hold in the button (little spring loaded micro button, red or black possibly) until the alarm chirps 1 time. This should over ride
the system, and only the keyless entry part, if installed, would still be operating. The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash should also go on solid.
At this point. the alarm would have reset. If this had a starter kill relay installed, it would now be opened, and the engine would turn over when tried.
You would repeat these steps to go back to user mode to see if this was corrected.
Let me know if it worked for your Jeep.
