I've had my 93' grand in the shop twice now because the alarm goes off at random and the door can't be opened without the alarm going off. Each place has told me you can't disarm the factory alarm. Please help me
this has happen to a bunch of us.Mine does the same thing.What I do is use the remote to lock the doors,then use the key in the drivers door.Just unlock and then lock again without opening the door.This will disarm the alarm.It's a PITA but its the best thing I've found to do so far.

i have this problem with my viper alarm. 1 out of every 10 times I disarm the viper, the factory alarm stays armed and when i open my door my air horns go off. i was thinking about putting a relay on my horns so that they can only go off with the ignition on. this seems a little drastic. Has anyone found a better way?
It can be disabled alright. Mine was disabled when I bought it, I didn't even know it had an alarm. I've read at least 4 ways of doing it, everything from cutting wires, pulling fuses, etc. You may want to try www.the12volt.com or post or search over at JU.
You may just have one sensor flaking out somewhere. Maybe an easy fix if you can find out which one. An important thing to note: people are reluctant to share info about disabling alarms on the WWW, for obvious reasons...
I just bought a 93 zj and my alarm would just go off at any time. i looked under the hood and the alarm sensor was not fully depressed so i put a shim under the hood contact and that did the trick...or so i thought. then i disconnected the sensor which was corroded and i have not had a problem ever since and the alarm does work but only for the doors.
Originally posted by ALS59LTD can you link to where you have read how to disable it? I looked at the 12volt website, there is like endless stuff on there i could not find anything about the factory alarm on a ZJ.
The body control module runs most of the alarm system. When the BCM needs to be replaced, they come from the factory with the alarm feature disabled. The dealer needs to use his DRB computer to turn it on. I don't know whether he can also turn it off.
If all else fails, maybe get a BCM from the junkyard from a GC w/o security system or new from dealer. $?

I had to disable mine when I took the doors off. First I just pulled the correct wires out of the door and would rub them together, then I pulled the whole keycylinder out of the door and owuld unlock it with that. Obviously neither of these is the best option for someone with a nice ZJ.
My current setup though is a simple button. Just go into the wiring harness in the door, figure out which wires you need. Follow them back out, and wire them to a button. Now when the alarm goes off I just push the button. I don't know if this would help with getting locked out or anything like that though...
