#588 of 708 1994/1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Alarm System
Dec 15, 2011 (7:52 am)
For several mornings, I have been woken up at 3 am or so for the alarm in my Jeep Cherokee going off randomly. I thought that if I pulled the fuse that it would stop. It did not. I pulled one of the other fuses related to the security system...to no avail as a matter of fact this morning when I went to start it to go to work. It would not start. When I put the 2 fuses back in it started just fine. What in the wprld could be causing this and what can I do?
#589 of 708 Grand Cherokee Alarm

I am guessing maybe a low battery.
I've had similar problems. I got the car used (180,000 miles now) and I don't know how many owners before me, but I didn't get a door remote to lock and unlock the doors. Have to use the key. I found that if I lock the doors with the switch inside, shut the door and leave, the alarm goes off within 5 minutes. Have to use the key in the driver door to reset the alarm. Also had left the dome light on and the battery died. I couldn't get it started via jumper cables....lights just kept flickering and the ignition clicked....until I thought about resetting the alarm with the key in the door....and it started fine. It's inconvenient but door reset seems to solve the problem for me. Hope it helps.

I know this post is old but I've heard this a few times and experienced it twice myself.
Once the battery went dead and had to have the jeep jumped, it triggered the alarm which kept the car from running after a couple of seconds. I had to reset the alarm. Since I don't have a door lock remote, I simply used the key in the door, turned it like I was locking and unlocking which reset the alarm.
On mine, which is a bit old and beat up (3rd, 4th 10th? owner), if I don't use the key to lock the doors, the alarm will go off 5-10 minutes after I leave the car. Still can't figure that one out but maybe this will help. Good luck.

im about to buy a 1994 jeep grand cherokee from an original owner and is in great condition for 1.600 was all fired up about it then saw the reliability marks when it came to transmission and driveline issues and elrctrical, and even the 4 wheel drive! however the classic didnt have those low marks in any category. ive owned several xj's in the past, great wheelers and reliable daily driver, however i was looking forward to the much cleaner and more luxury insides of the grand cherokee, it has the same engine as the xj, the 4.oliter. can anyone tell me something good about the zj, or am i making a mistake choosing thezj over thexj, could use some opinions on this matter
#592 of 708 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Electrical Problems
Dec 20, 2011 (8:49 pm)
My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee,had these problems .
On startup no gages,no warning lights,no read out from the status control pannel, and no turn signals.
Removed negative battery terminal connector for an hour then reconnected it to the battery.
This seems to have corrected the problem.

#594 of 708 2011 GCL Battery issues
Dec 27, 2011 (2:30 am)
I purchased a new 2011 GCL V6 a couple of months ago. All's going well EXCEPT I've had three battery failures so far the last being Xmas Day. Car not driven for three days and battery dead flat. Roadside assist got it going. Now have no radio or other panel features. Screen blank. Never in my 40+ years of owning cars have I experienced this. My other car is a Mercedes C Class 200K and all we do is put fuel in it. It is a perfect vehicle.
Last trip to the dealer found no fault. Second failure they changed the battery and now three weeks later back to square ne.

One of two things is causing the problem. The battery is getting discharged due to a short, or the battery is not being charged when the GCL is running.
Because the radio and panel features stopped working. the best guess would be the wiring to the automatic switch assembly(or the assembly itself) that allows the radio to stay on when the switch is turned off until the door is opened.
