95 Grand Cherokee Alarm Issue
Help! Any way to permanently disconnect the alarm? About 50% of the time the alarm will go off when unlocking the driver's door. Have had issues too where it will not reset when the key is turned to the left and held. The kids have lost/broken too many remotes so I do not want to get them another one....

Power Control Module, located on the firewall/passenger side. Raise the hood, look towards the rear of the engine bay, should be behind some A/C aluminum hoses.


E.T.A. Try searching for threads on &, lots of chatter out there about this. HTH

My guess is one (possibly more) of the wires in the boot between the door and the body has broken just enough to not always make good contact. You can replace the wire and fix it that way (I think its purple and yellow).
Your other option, is to trace the alarm wire into the body and ground it (body end). I haven't done this, but have heard this is how to permanently disable it.

Re: 95 Grand Cherokee Alarm Issue
still got that problem? if you have the Code_Alarm brand for your security system u got yourself a real headache, its has a backup system that will still use your regular horn as an alarm aside from the system siren, it's useless to reset the PCM without a remote, and using the ignition key sequence reset it will take you ages. If you want it all re-wired/dismantled you have to give up an arm and a leg for the cost, it ain't worth it.
The simplest trick would be to have a car electrician install for you a manual kill switch (aside from the override button Code_Alarm already has) in series with your horn fuse line, not the horn. Before leaving the car put the kill switch off, put it on again ONLY AFTER you start the car, the alarm will already disengage when the engines running, if the engine wont start just press the Code_Alarm button then start the engine. If you forget to put on the kill switch you only wont have any horn.
With all that's said and done your system is still active BUT it beats the heck out of opening/closing your hood to take out/put on the negative of the battery or remove the horn fuse or be like a magician and open a door/hatch combination whatever to disengage the unwanted alarm :P some folks actually do that.

Re: 95 Grand Cherokee Alarm Issue
The front drivers, front passenger doors, and the lift gate have disabling switches mounted to the key lock cylinder inside the doors. When the switch is working properly it will ground out the wire to the factory alarm when unlocking and disables the alarm. Just remove the door panel on either of the front doors, locate the 2 wires going to the lock cylinder switch, cut and connect the two wires together. This will permanently disable the alarm.
