Depends. That system is a real bear. IF you have a battery that is 'suspect' in any way, you need to replace it with a quality battery. the security module will dump into 'security' status when the voltage drops during crank over. A healthy battery is really important on this system. Also, check the door entry key switches AND the tailgate switch which is a magnetic proximity switch as opposed to the front door microswitches that hang on the entry key cylinder tails. Next, check or just disconnect the hood security plunger switch near the battery. The possibility exists that the overhead console is contributing to your problem as it is wired to the security module. I have a 92 Cherokee and have been holding my breath for 5 years that it continues to run. I had an infrared security key built by a firm I found online. The jeep came without one. as the front door lock switches had failed and I got tired of unlocking the system at the tailgate, I wanted a normal way to unlock the doors and disarm the security system. Good luck on your problem.

Removing the security system of a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee can be done in less than 30 minutes. You will need to take out the Vehicle Theft Security System Module and all sensors. Make sure the battery is disconnected before removing.
