Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

So you remove the key, exit the vehicle, lock the doors. The courtesy lights or instrument illumination lights remain on?

ok so here is my problem I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Recently the alarm goes off for no good reason, which is really disturbing neighbors, so I took the advice I read on here and grounded out the wire from drivers side door lock and now the interior lights and courtesy lights stay on all the time, so any advice is appreciated

With this wire grounded you were hoping to send a signal to the vehicle that the drivers door is never open?
