Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Alarm triggers unrationably causing delays in leaving public parking. Also doesn't like to turn off normally with key in door.
#1 solution for this is to " BUY A GM PRODUCT" & save your money on costly repairs of these chrysler & JEEP (amc) vehicles!

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.

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..
