    money is an issue or we would be happy to replace the vehicle

    I had read somewhere that you can ground out a wire under the kickplate on the drivers side to disarm this alarm. If anyone can confirm this it would be helpful. Doesn't make sense to me.

Do the car have to be running when you take the alarm system out of a 1995 Grand Cherokee or do it have to be off

You could also pull the plug from the factory alarm control module thus taking it totally out of the system. It is behind the glove box (the furthest module on the left... attached with 2 screws. It seems like a PITA job, but it is really not too bad if you have a phillips head screwdriver and about 45 mins to 1 hour.

You will need to remove the dash, the radio/center console bezel, and then finally you can get to the glove box. I'll give you the rundown if you want to go this route.

First, you will need to remove the screws holding the front of the dashpad down. There are 3 screws along the top of the bezel around the instrument cluster, 2 screws along the top of the radio/center console bezel, and 2 screws along the top of the inside of the glove box.

Next, gently pry the center defrost bezel (along the back of the dash pad near the winshield - be careful, mine has two sensors attached: auto headlights and the temperature). Once that is removed unhook the two sensors and remove the defrost bezel.

Underneath the defrost bezel you will find 4 screws holding the dash down, remove those. Now you have removed all the screws holding your dash in place. In order to make it easier to lift the dash out of the car, you might want to remove the side pillar trim pieces (they are the plastic pieces that run from the dash to the headliner on both sides). They are held on by two metal 'snap-type' fittings, so you just need to genly pull on them and they will separate. Now, the only thing holding your dash in place are two 'snap type' fittings one on the forward drivers side edge and one on the forward passengers side edge. Genlty pull up on the dash in these areas and they will separate. Now you can remove the dash. (It sounds like a lot of work, but it took me longer to type this than actually doing it).

Once the dash is off, you will need to remove the radio/center console bezel. This is held on by 6 screws (2 of which you already removed). Remove the middle two screws, and then remove the ash tray to uncover the bottom two screws. Remove those and you can gently pry out the bezel. There is will be a connection for the cigarette lighter - you can unplug or just simply move the bezel out of the way slightly. The only reason to remove this is so that you can uncover one of the screws holding the glove box on.

Now you are finally ready to remove the glove box. First pull of the fuse panel cover door and the side demister boot (rectangular black thing above the fuse panel - just snaps in place, so pull gently to remove). Now open the glove box and remove the 3 screws along the front that hold the relay cover in place. You can remove that piece and set it aside. Next remove the four screws along the underside of the glove box (when looking up from the passenger side floor). Then remove the screw along the left edge of the glove box - lower left corner (the one that was hidden by the radio/console bezel). Now, there are 4 screws along the top that were hidden by the dash (the whole reason you had to pull the dash). Remove those and you can pull the glove box. There is a connection for the light - unhook that and you can take the whole glove box out and set aside.

Now to find the alarm relay. When looking at the cavity behind the glove box you should see some relays (turn signal, hazard, etc) that would normally be accessed by removing the cover inside the glove box. These are on the right side. In the center there will be a box that is approximately the size of a pack of cigarettes mounted by two screws. You will need to remove those screws and pull that box out of the way. The alarm module is the next cigarette size box to the left. It is mounted partly behind the plastic that makes up the front edge of the cavity by two screws. Remove those screws and you can pull the alarm module out. It has a 16 pin (I'm pretty sure) connector that you can unplug. That should totally remove the alarm from your system.

Let me know if you need any further help, good luck

There are switches on the door lock cylinders that are supposed to shut the alarm off when you use the key,but they go bad allot. you could try unlocking the passenger door first, since that one usually gets less use and is less likely to go bad. Otherwise you can disconnect the alarm module, it is located behind the glove box.

SOURCE: Can not disarm alarm on 2002 jeep grand cherokee

First, try to re-programme the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) transmitters before searching for anything else. Assure that the batteries in the transmitters are in working condition and replace them if you are not sure. To pro-gramme the transmitters, perform the following:

Open the driver's door and let it be open throughout the programming process. Then, shift the mechanical door lock lever to the LOCK mode, turn the ignition key to the rUN mode. Within a period of twenty seconds, point a transmitter at the receiver dome and push the lock button for a period of five seconds at least. After the receiver has accepted the programming code the driver's door will unlock on its own. The first transmitter has been programmed, in the same extra transmitters up to four may be programmed in the same way, within twenty seconds.
If the alarm does not work properly, you may have a faulty alarm module and may have to be replace and its common problems with and older model. the systems work like a security systems, if you arms your system with the remote you have to disarm it also with the remote in order for the engine to start and run. The logic in the PCM prevents the VTSS engine no-run feature from arming until the engine start; Its one of the security systems jeep has and if you ask for my opinion its junk. hope that help some..

The 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Anti-Theft System is equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS). VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made to enter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights and parking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

The following wiring diagram and electronics circuit contains detail schematics of The 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Anti-Theft System. Herein you will find interconnection between electronics parts of the system such as body control module, auto headlamp light sensor. VTSS led, driver door module, passenger door module, cylinder lock switch, junction block, power distribution center, and grounding. Herein you will learn also how the Vehicle Theft Security System works, removal, installation, testing and troubleshooting procedures.

My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo wont start, everytime I try to start it, it makes this loud noise like a buzzing sound, and then the security light starts flashing and the brights light starts flashing...


If your battery has not been drained, try unlocking the lift gate or the passenger side door. That should disarm the alarm. You may need to get a jump if you're getting the flashing lights.

Another thing it does is to shut off your fuel pump. If you get it started after trying the above procedure, the issue is definitely your alarm system.

It is armed whenever you normally leave your car (using power locks seems to arm it on my 94 GCL.

There is a permanant disarming procedure on FixYA but it is pretty radical -- you have to find one of the wires that sends the signal to the alarm system from one of your door locks and ground it.

1994 Jeep Cheerokee Laredo: The remote keyless


If it is a factory alarm you can't unhook it. Replace the switch attached to the lock cylinder inside the door. In the meantime, the switch on the passenger door may still be good. Cycle the key in the passenger door to see if it turns off the alarm.

Alarm goes off for no reason. 97 Jeep grand Cherokee.


There is a security system built-in to the Jeep Grand Cherokee during these years. The reason the alarm goes off is because of a change in the electrical system (like shutting a door) that triggers the alarm. To stop the alarm, either disarm with the remote or unlock the door from the outside with the key. This will shutoff the alarm.

If you cant start it because of the alarm disconnect the battery, wait ten secs, reconnect then turn the key in the driver's door twice holding for 2 seconds on the second turn, this should reset the alarm.
