Anti-Theft system problem
I just bought a 94 grand cherokee 5.2L as my fishing truck. I really like it so far, the motor is powerfull and it is in pretty good shape. The only problem so far is the anti-theft system. The previous owner forgot to tell me there was one (!). It works as follow : if I unlock the doors with the remote control, I can turn on the car without any problem. If I unlock the car with a key, and try to start the car, the dash lights turn on, but the starter doesnt even click, nothing happens.
Is there a way to start the car without this remote control?? I honestly dont know if this is an aftermarket anti-theft system. The brand on the remote is "autostart" and there is buttons for remote start, lock, unlock and trunk.
The previous owner only gave me one remote... What happens if the power cell is depleted? What happens if this flimsy control break? I wont be able to start the car? Is it standard to all zj jeep?
Thanks a lot for your help !
