Or the hatch! Have to do this on my ZJ...trying to figure out how to fix it. Aggravating sometimes.

When one of my '97s wouldn't disarm with the key in the driver's door but would in the passenger door and hatch, I had to replace the driver's door disarm switch. I wasn't fortunate enough that it was only that the disarm switch had come loose from the lock cylinder. With the door panel off, you can reach up and snap the switch off of the rear of the lock cylinder and then unplug the 2-wire electrical connector. New disarm switch snaps right back onto the lock cylinder. Disarm switch was about $35 from the dealer.

Ah seriously? Nice! I'll be sure to pick one up soon. I'll replace it when I rewire my front speakers later in the week.

One of your door disarm switches is bad. it connects to your lock cylinder.

The passenger front door has the main controls for the locks. Check there first
