Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a problem: new car battery and no remote control transmitter for the door. lights flash outside and inside on the dashboard SECURITY flashes. when I try to to get the car going, engine wants to start but dies immediately. Any idea? Anti-theft system? How can I go around it? Or better yet, take it out forever?
I have 94 JGC and the remotes have long since died and replacement batteries did not help. Everytime I lock the door I must use the key in the passenger side door (not the driver side) to disable the alarm and everything is ok. If I unlock the driver side it acts like you describe.

Put the key in the drivers side door and unlock it manually. It should disarm the security system. If that does not work, unlock the hatchback with the key. That works as well.

You may need to call a dealership and ask them about it they are most familiar with their systems and can tell you how to shut it off and possibly tell you how to keep it disarmd
