Big Problem. Need help.

We live 9 miles into a jungle and need our wrangler. We took to town to have the engine cleaned. It did not run right after this so we took it back. The mechanic took the battery cable off the battery and when he put it back, the alarm went off. He did not have the remote and he could not find the shut off switch, so he cut the alarm system out of the car. Now we cannot start the car. We contacted the alarm installer in the states and he gave us some guidance but suggested that there may be a different problem other than the alarm. Someone suggersted that the computer might be bad. Any help, greatly appreciated.

The alarm was a prestige. We have no interest in hooking it back up. We just want to get jeep started so we can use it. It is a 2006 Wrangler 2.2 liter. The diagnostic computer does not read the computer in the jeep.

It must have a kill switch and now the switch may not work? My tj had that. Look under the steering collumn and see if the alarm is spliced into the inginition wires. I had to cut those and remove the entire alarm. Started right up after that

What he said....check under the steering collum and remove the alarm, I am sure that is your only problem....also would it have not been easier for the mechanic to disconnect the battery? Thank boy genius for your troubles...best of luck!
