2013 JK alarm keeps going off

Hi all...I just bought a 2013 JK a month ago with 3000 miles on it.Now has 4200 miles on it. It's been great until now but yesterday the alarm started going off when I got to a destination, and tried to lock it. The alarm went off. Coming back to the vehicle I unlocked the door with the key fob and opened the door and the alarm again went off. When I get home, the vehicle is garaged and I leave it unlocked. This morning I opened my door and the bloody alarm went off again. During errands toady, it would still go off consistently. I'm well acquainted with key fobs and security as I've owned many vehicles. Any suggestions out there?

I'd try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes to see if that fixes your problem.

Try this. If it doesn't work you have to take it to the dealer.

Same problem on my 2014. Chinese junk horn switch replaced and same problem after 1000 miles more. Chrysler Quality Manager needs to be FIRED! I traded in our 2012's because of head issues and now have new and different other quality problems.

Mine is back in the shop at a more qualified dealer. Initial diagnosis is main buss which handles horn, cruise, displays, etc. Lesson, find a well qualified dealer.

check that theres no "door Ajar" light in the dash. one of my door connectors got water in it . the alarm system thought the door was still open and would set the alarm and the alarm would go off shortly after. If it is its easy to diagnose just open and shut all the doors to find the culprit.

Getting used to forums...sorry for the delay. Turns out there was a short in the steering column harness. Dealer corrected it in about an hour and a half. Rwilliamjacob, my '72 CJ5 and '94 YK were both bare bones affairs. At 53, I felt the need to pamper myself a little!
