Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Special Edition. Today I accidentally set the alarm off. How do I make the alarm turn off when it's already going?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?

Yes, but I just need to know how to turn off the alarm.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried hitting the panic button a few times but that didn't work. What should I do?

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. disconnect the battery. both terminals. rub the terminals together for 30 seconds. leave them hang loose fro 30 minutes then reconnect. if the alarm is sounding when you reconnect the battery then immediately hit the lock theen unlock buttons on your fob
