Messed up key fob

Asked by May 11, 2016 at 03:02 AM about the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last week the battery on my key fob went out and
while I was replacing it the inside broke. My car
alarm would go off until I would start my car. Today I
took the inside of the fob out so my friend could put
it back together. But now my alarm goes off and my
car starts and then shuts off. How do I fix this?

Roll drivers door window down, lock passenger doors manually inside, use the key and lock the driver door, wait at least 30 seconds and then use the key to unlock the drivers door, that should deactivate the alarm system. Note: there maybe a malfunction in the fob so take the battery out before trying this deactivation procedure.
