If it's the factory installed alarm, you can just not arm it instead of pulling the fuses. With the doors closed use the automatic door locks to secure all doors & liftgate. Then exit the driver door and either slide the lock manually and close the door or close the door and lock it with the key (not the fob.)
If the alarm works all day at work with no problem, I would consider that someone is screwing with you. Maybe they don't like where you park or something.
Alternatively, maybe your battery is running down after X hours and your alarm is responding to the drop in current.

I just had my 1996 jeep for a little over a month and already having electrical problems. My dash board doesn't work and the radio don't play. If it is the brain in the jeep how do i find that out. The fuse blew and if you try to put another one in as soon as you touch it the fuse blow again. every thing else works fine.
#604 of 707 Jeep Grand Cherokee Electrical Problem
Jan 07, 2012 (2:39 am)
I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The car stalls on me while driving and the back window goes down intermittently. The battery is new and I have replaced some electrical wiring. I have read that it could be my crankshaft position sensor or my computer box.
Any help would be appreciated.
#605 of 707 '96 Grand Cherokee- NO electrical power at all
Jan 08, 2012 (10:19 am)
I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Lately, there have been some intermittent problems. At first, it would occasionally not start due to a dead battery, but with a quick jump, I was back on the road, but wasn't sure what was drawing off the battery. This I had to do about 4-5 times. Then, it happened and I had full power, but had to keep my foot on the gas in order to keep it from dying. Last week, while driving, everything cut out, the radio, the lights, the dash, everything but just for a second, then it all came right back. This happened a couple times. For the past week, I haven't had any issues at all, until this morning. I started the Jeep and it started fine. I pulled out of driveway, put it in drive, but had to stop to let someone walk by. At this point it just died. I tried to restart it, but had no luck. I turn the key and it sounded like it wanted to start, but didn't- there were no dashboard lights when I turned the ignition, no lights, radio, etc nothing. I got it to start once more and was able to get it in to a parking lot before it all cut out again. At this point, the steering wheel won't lock, nothing is getting power, not even my locks, although it stills sounds like it wants to start. Please help!!
#606 of 707 Grand Cherokee electrical problem.
Jan 08, 2012 (12:04 pm)
I had kind of the same problem with my 94 GCL. The first thing I would look at is if the check engine light is coming on when you first turn the power on. Don't turn it clear to turning over, just powered up. If the check engine light doesn't come on and it won't start it is more than likely you computer. Sometimes my light wouldn't come on and it wouldn't start. I would wait a while with the key on and the check engine light would eventually come on and it would start right up. The time waiting for the light to come on was longer and longer until it just didn't come on and wouldn't start. There were also many other things going crazy like yours is but I figured out the check engine light was the main giveaway for it being the PCM. I bought one from ebay about 2 years ago and haven't had any problem since. Hope this helps and good luck.

At this point, absolutely nothing comes on when I turn the key- not part way or all the way. I am having it towed now. Will I be able to pull a code off it still if its the actual computer I have to replace? Are there any other tell tale signs that I should be looking for as well?
