There is no governor on a wrangler, though in the computer there may be a rev limiter, the only way to disable this would be to have the computer re-programmed or a chip installed. At this time I don't know of any who supply a chip set, or re-programm jeep computers. On a side note, altering the computer to get more speed is unwise in a jeep due to the inherent handling characteristics. If you want fast, don't buy a jeep.

From experience, there *is* a governor in the ECM and possibly a rev limiter too. During a closed-stage rally on a long down-hill straight stretch the engine cut out at 140kph (87mph), but the revs were under 3000 RPM, much less than what I sometimes do in lower gears while accelerating, so I know it was a speed limitation, not a revs limitation. The rest of the original answer is bang-on, it is a modernized farm tractor, not a sports car... still loads of fun though!

It is located on the transmission. You can bypass it but be carefull because the vehicle will start up in gear.

Then disable them in the BIOS. What good would passwords be if you could bypass them at will?

You can not bypass or disable the factory alarm. It is part of the computer programming.

If you want your vehicle to operate properly, you don't. If you bypass or disable the ECM, the motor isn't simply going to revert to functioning like a mechanical motor - many components of an electrical motor are dependent on the ECM in order to properly function. If you want to bypass the speed governor, you need that to be reprogrammed.

It does not have a governor. there is a governor at least one similar. my speedometer goes up to 130, but at 115 a governor like disabling of power happens. please e mail me at mister_pk@snowboard.com if you have any answers. thanks it most likely is speed limited by the computer, the only way to bypass it is with a custom burned computer or an aftermarket performance chip
