Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You don't mention what year the Jeep is but I'm assuming it's a WJ or ZJ body vehicle with the SKIM system. The SKIM system uses a transponder in the key that communicates with a module in the steering column and would disarm security.

There are two ways to disarm factory security. One is by unlocking a door or the liftgate with a key, and the other is pressing the unlock button on a key fob. Do you have a functional key fob?
