you can not prevent the alarm from going off because there is no disarm switch in the door lock mechanism. the only actual solution is to replace the key

When it don't want to start have a friend hit the gas tank while you try to start it, if it starts then it's your fuel pump

Most of that is not scheduled maintenance items. I would have your fuel filter replaced, if not done yet, it should be done every 20,000 miles. Alot of these places get a small commission for selling added services. I would go by the maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

If I may suggest, you may want to check the ignition coil or check your fuel pump. the most likely cause is that you have a bad pump, and it stopped working....causing you to only use the fuel in the lines and then the engine shuts off due to lack of fuel supply. have someone get close to the gas tank and listen for the fuel pump to cut on. Beforehand, it may be wise to check the fueses and relays for the pump.

The problem I believe is the crank shaft position sensor.Check the wiring and make sure the connections are good.It is located at the right rear side of the engine block.Hope this helps.Good luck.

It doesn't have a serviceable filter. It only has one in the tank on the bottom of the fuel pump.

Have the fuel pressure checked next time it does this. You may have a failing fuel pump.

I am confused by what you said but I will take a shot anyways check your fuel pump. after it dies dont mess with key but chech to see if you lost fuel pressure with a fuel gauge

The most common cause of this problem is that the gas gage sending unit that senses the fuel level is defective, it is an open circuit. The sending unit is part of the fuel pump module and all comes as one part. To replace the fuel pump module you must drop the fuel tank out of the truck.

Check for the computer codes. It can point to the cylinder that is miss firing. Could be a bad injector. Do a cylinder balance.

Your radio may have two power feeds. Check the fuses. Make sure they all have voltage. Try taking off the battery cable again. Seems to help with other problems. See forum. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/the-famous-jeep-grand-cherokee-electrical-problem-272172/5/

Inset the key into the driver door and turn to unlock position three times to disengage alarm system without remote. Do the same in lock position for setting alarm without key fob.

Need more info like when you say it won't start, Does it spin over? Is the engine turning over? If not, and a jump start does work, Then it is the Battery or the post connections. That's it! If it does not turn over with a jump then it will be the starter or ignition switch. If u can get to the starter, it can be forced on with a small jumper from the large post to the small stud (usually red) If you need further help, reach me via phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gary_9c859f4aa7e5ab10

If it is the horn, pull the horn fuse or relay. Does the vehicle start and drive, ok? Of course, pulling the fuse or relay isn't the proper fix. I'm just talking about killing the horn, where applicable. horn-0ydfvtvimtzkexzoupuln05p-1-0.jpg

You probably aren't going to believe this but the first thing to do is remove and clean up your battery posts and terminals. A momentary disconnect will drive the dash nuts! Easy to do and hopefully repairs it.

Its probably a bulb. Have someone scan for diagnostic fault codes to trace the CEL. Some parts stores will scan it for free.
