Cut purple wire with yellow tracer

and now the battery goes dead. I cut the wire on the drivers side door to stop the alarm from going off. I grounded the end coming from the harness and the battery went dead. I pulled the wire off of ground and with the key off and out of the ignition there is 12 volts on it (which is what caused the battery to die) am I supposed to pull fuses or do I have something else wrong. I reconnected the wire to save the battery. What did I do wrong or right?

You were having issues with the stock security system correct?

I believe that there is a different fix for the 1996+ OBDII Jeeps and that the proceedure posted on here only works for the OBDI 1993-1995 models.

Well then I guess I got lucky that I didn't burn something up. I will search and see what I can see. That is how I found the Purple wire fix. Thanks

I just did a search and this time a found a different answer. It is a momentary grounding of the wire on the 96 and up. Now I know Thanks
