There is a small toggle switch that you have to find out usually this switch is installed under the dash and when you find it put the car key in the ignition switch and turn it to the ON position and move the toggle switch position until you here a beep, some of the aftermarket alarms bring a push button switch, if this is the case just keep press it until you here the siren beep and does it, this way you are disconnecting the alarm or in another words your alarm is in a valet mode.

How do I turn off the alarm on my 2002 jeep wrangler tj?

is this just alarm , and or the immoblizer SKIM problems, why not post the symptoms, or if opr guide missing.
all answers USA spec cars......
all answers STOCK cars, not hacked or with non Jeep parts.

the SKIM can not be defeated.
if still stock is it? with stock alarm. is it?

the fsm is free for 02 TJ

it explains all there. (no chapter on alarm only the IMMO )
chapter 8Q
theft and security chapter.
I attempt to guess your question, how to disable just the door alarms. (not SKIM)

my 02 TJ has no such thing, door alarms at all , mine had rag windows
and and no electric door locks at all, just a key. (mech lock)
not only that, the 02 operators guide has not a word at all about any alarm. period (USA cars)

my 08 JK however has doors with glass windows and all trimmings.
the alarm on my 08 is disabled by these steps.

To Disarm the System
To disarm the system, you will need to press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter, or turn the ignition
key to the ON position. If something has triggered the
system in your absence, the horn will sound three times
when you unlock the doors. Check the vehicle for tampering.
The Security Alarm System is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
system will arm unexpectedly. If you remain in the
vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE transmitter, once
the system is armed (after 16 seconds), when you pull the
door handle to exit, the alarm will sound. If this occurs,
press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter to
disarm the system. You may also accidentally disarm the
system by unlocking the driver's door with the key and
then locking it. The door will be locked but the Security
Alarm will not arm.

next time post symptoms, so we can be on the same page..

How to determane if my jeep has a after market alarm or a factory?

The factory alarm is tied into your ignition switch. Most newer vehicles have an anti start system incorporated into this in case it is broken into. The alarm will shut the system down and will not allow the vehicle to start. Look under the dash under the driver side and see if you can locate a small box. Should have a serial number barcode on it. If so it has a factory alarm.

I have a 1989 jeep wrangler 2.5l it started stalling so i replaced the ignition coil hoping that would help but its still stalling

Could be an intermitant problem with the ignistion module. Auto Zone can test them for free.
Also if you have an alarm that disables the vehicle, that could be an issue as well. I have seen many, Many alarms go bad and cause this.

Try Turn your vehicle on, while its on unhook the alarm box from behind the dash. if you attempt to do this without the vehicle on it will not work. an other solution would be to ground the purple and yellow wire on the drivers side door

98 Jeep Wrangler with Alarm Problem - Installed by Marietta Jeep

Your vehicle has 2 ignition wires that you can put back to factory, and start the vehicle.
The wires you are looking to put back together are (blue) and (black/orange) - and found under the D/S dash. (ignition harness) They will be larger in Diameter than the others.
They were cut to install the security system. They go into the "brain" and out the other side. A relay inside the BRAIN is most likely failing.
If you no longer want the alarm installed, simply match up all of the factory colors. Use crimp-on ****-connectors for secure connection.
Let me know if you need more help.

Factory security system

I had an aftermarket alarm on a Wrangler and encountered the same problem. With the car off I disconnected the battery, then pulled the fuse(s) for the alarm. I waited to reconnect the battery for about 10 minutes because the computer can hold memory with no power source for a short amount of time. (I did not put the alarm fuses back in.) This disables the alarm, but atleast the Jeep started.
