Start with checking the battery. Yah, I know it sounds a bit odd. But KJ's do really crazy things if the battery voltage is not right up to snuff.

Is this a factory alarm?

What 95Badboy said^^^^ first start with the battery and battery connections.

If you get no lights on the dashboard with ignition ON then maybe you have the classic broken ignition actuator pin which you can search about.

Alarm can go off if the switch in the engine bay that senses if your hood has been opened goes faulty.....this switch is on the RHS or drivers side in your case.

jeep alarm

Thanks guys, I always forget the simple solution. Checked the battery and found it's only reading 8.4v. Must have a short somewhere as it was a new battery last week. Come to think of it, the old one went flat, probably when the problem started, duh ! Will update later, thanks again

If you need help with tracking down the electrical short ie. if your electrical autocentre does not have circuit diagrams....check in here again for assistance.
