The 1993 Jeep Cherokee’s anti-theft system will prevent thieves from tampering with your vehicle. However, these systems often create embarrassing situations when they don’t work properly and shut down at an unwanted time. Disabling the alarm will prevent this from happening. It may also be necessary to disable the alarm while performing certain types of electrical work or when upgrading the factory alarm to an aftermarket model.
Step 1: disable the alarm
Insert the key into the door lock and turn it counterclockwise. This will turn off the alarm if it is currently ringing.

Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery terminal using a wrench to loosen the cable nut. Tuck the cable behind something so that it does not come into contact with the battery again.
Step 3: how to reset grand cherokee alarm
Remove the protection panel from the driver’s side. Wiggle a prying tool, such as a flat-head screwdriver, around the perimeter of the panel until it releases. Do not use force to remove the panel. Now a half purple, half yellow wire will be exposed. This is the disarm wire for the alarm system.

Strip a section of the wire with a wire stripper. Do not cut the wire. Strip both ends of a replacement length of any type of electrical wire. Wrap one end of the wire around the newly exposed section of the alarm wire.
Step 5: how to unlock a Cherokee
Look for any metal bolts near the cable and loosen it slightly. This will serve as a ground point. Wrap the other end of the cable around the bolt and snap it back into place. The alarm is now deactivated. Replace the negative battery cable, making sure the nut is tight.
