frustrated...cannot turn off security system
I dont know much about jeeps so this is probably a stupid question. I bought the jeep three years ago from an out of town dealer (on the web). I checked out ok, but I did not think to ask about whether it had a security system. 6 months later, what appears to be a security system started going off in the garage. I was not home so my wife just left it. When I got home, the battery was dead. When I tried to jump it, the security system came back on. I have no fob to turn it on/off, nor is there any type of owners manual. Any ideas for getting past the security so I can start it (and then rip the security system out)?
I would get under the dash and start looking for the main control box, and start following the wires to the ignition and any other place it goes to. When you find the ends, start removing the wires. There should be at least one wire that has been spliced into the ignition wire, remove and resplice it, it should be obvious. Then take the control box and throw it in the trash, it will work better there
The ignition wire will be bigger than all other wires.not knowing or seeing it. Tread with caution. If you have a reset button hold that with the key in the ignition in acc the sta while holding. After that rip it out.
I recently ran into an issue with an alarm my jeep came with. On mine I have a push button, and a toggle switch next to each other on the driver side floor board. Put the key in the on position, don't start it, hold the button for 3-5 seconds, and in my case I put the toggle switch down. I also read you can take out a fuse in the wiring behind the lower shroud.
I had an alarm like this on a car once----before there were electric key fobs. There's a toggle switch hidden somewhere around the dash area most likely. It has to be in a place where a thief cannot easily find it, yet still be easy enough for you to shut it off. Check the glove compartment area maybe. If it can be locked, then that's where it is.
