You could take the fuse out of the main alarm harness for a couple of days and see if your problem persists

How to hook up bulldog 1-wire alarm

Hello my name is Israel and I will be glad to help you out. This alarm system uses a drop in voltage sensor to work. First mount the siren on a firm ground metal of the vehicle. Be sure that the base is mounted on metal and not plastic. Then, the best way for the system to work is to run the wire into the vehicle cab and connet the one wire to the positive side of either the dome light fuse or dome light wire. This will help in it "catching" voltage drops when the lights go on. Good Luck.

Have installed the Bulldog remote starter in my 2005 jeep liberty. I have to hit the button several times to get it started. I have already changed the jeep's battery.

There is some sort of a feedback to tell the starter if the unit is running - make sure you have the 'tach feedback' connected. There are settings for it to run the starter for specific length of time, or for it to know that it started by the tach feedback. Check your users' manual.

When it try's to start, my Jeep cranks 2 to 3

You have most likely installed the remote starter in the standard mode. You will need to follow the directions and hook up the tachometer wire and program the remote starter unit to start in the "tach" mode. That way it will continue cranking until the vehicle starts on your battery goes dead, whichever comes first.
