Help! Alarm won't shut off!

My 97 ZJ arm blasting away! I fidgeted with the door wire but no luck! How do I stop it? I need to get home.

Do you have the keyfob? Press unlock.

If not, try manually unlocking the doors and hatch with the key.

If that doesnt work, youve got something wrong.

Well go with "something wrong." Anybody got ideas? Or a wiring diagram?

Ok so. I disconnected the plug from the latch, shorted the terminals, and the alarm shut off. This worked til my next stop when I had to do it again. Has not happened since.
There is this:

But don't. Know if it works on my model.
Until next time I'm good.
I will also be keeping the paperclip in my center console. 😁
Does anybody have factory or other wiring diagrams that are just as good? Thanks!

If the alarm is truly going off, starting the engine will do nothing to stop it.

So using the key fob to unlock the Jeep will not make the alarm stop? What are you wanting a wiring diagram of? When does the alarm go off?
