Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The alarm is causing all the problems. You need the code to reset the alarm system. It is possible that it may be in your owner manual. If not, you are going to have to call the dealership to get the code. Before you call, you need to make sure you have your VIN number and any other information on the vehicle. Some places make you come down to the dealership to get the code. Once it is reset, everything else should work again.
Do you have anti-theft system bypass module installed? Transponder key bypass? Try unlocking the doors with your factory Jeep remote (turns off alarm) and leaving the gray transponder key in the ignition cylinder. Then try activating your remote start. Sounds like one of the factory anti-theft systems is still active. Basically if the car's computer doesn't want it to run, the car won't run. You have to fool the car into thinking it is OK to start and stay running without the key and anti-theft device deactivated. You need to leave a transponder key in the vehicle under the dash to bypass that system. You can get a generic one for about $20. You MUST have 2 original gray transponder keys in order to program a third. There is a sequence of putting one key in the ignition, then the second, then the new blank key so the cars computer knows to allow that key also. If you do not have 2 original keys, then you need to go to someone that can program properly like dealership or some locksmiths or alarm shops. Then they usually charge about $100 for a second key. You don't have to have the key cut. That way if someone finds the spare transponder key in the vehicle, it wont turn the ignition cylinder. The anti-theft bypass module (factory alarm bypass) runs about $25. Bulldog Security or JBS model 791 should work for your vehicle. If you live in an area where car thefts are common, you may not want to bypass these factory security measures. Hope this information helps.
When alarm goes off,put key in ignition and turn,the alarm should go off and alarm should be reset.Or,remove positive battery cable,wait 10 minutes,reconnect,when you open door,alarm will sound,insert key in ignition and turn key and alarm should go off and alarm should be reset.
I have the same model.you must do this .put key in door turn it left and right 3 times .then when you get in put key in ignition turn it 3 times left and right .now start your nice running jeep.thanks Ed
that is one thing that the dealer only can do the key has a special chip in it to keep from it from starting or go to the dealer with ur title and and ask them for a key to reset the alarm cause it is causeing ur car not to start it's called a pats system
I had same problem, when a door lock broke, the car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off. Mine started going off randomly when this lock broke. You have to reset the alarm system, with my 1990 Acura it was reset finally by putting key in door lock and turning key back and forth 3X. In my car, it was OK to do the key in door lock cycle in the passenger side door lock, but Acura dealer told me not all Acuras will reset it via passenger side key cycling, some require driver door lock key cycling only. I was lucky since my driver side door lock was currently useless, that my car allowed it to be done by key cycle on pass. door lock. But try that and if it doesn't fix it, just call acura dealerships until someone tells you the right answer. In my situation it took 3 dealerships with 3 different answers until this was the right one for my 1990 Legend.
PS I was told you can't disable alarm since it is all integrated into the battery and starting system, but read on another post that someone disableld theirs by disconnecting the horn.
