How do I lock my Jeep without arming the alarm???

Since I'm a dumbass and lost one of my two key fobs at an amusement park, I just want to get one or two replacement keys that are chipped to operate the Jeep.

How do I lock the doors/unlock the doors with a regular key without the alarm setting? Help!

Thanks,

Carl

Pretty sure it only arms if you use the fob, so you should be able to just lock it with the power doors and be set.

If I lock it with the power doors and close the door, it is hit and miss as to whether or not the alarm arms itself. I can't figure out the rhyme or reason to it all.

Here's what it says on pg 19 of the 2013 PDF owner's manual:

To Arm The System

The Vehicle Security Alarm will set when you use the
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter to lock the doors
and swing gate, or when you use the power door lock
switch while the door is open. After all the doors are
locked and closed, the Vehicle Security Light (located on
the instrument cluster) will flash rapidly for about 16
seconds to signal that the Vehicle Security Alarm is
arming. During this 16-second arming period, opening
any door or the swing gate will cancel the arming. If the
Vehicle Security Alarm is successfully set, the Vehicle
Security Light will flash at a slower rate to indicate the
Vehicle Security Alarm is armed.

To Disarm The System

To disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm, you will need to
press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter, or
turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position. If
something has triggered the Vehicle Security Alarm in
your absence, the horn will sound three times and the
exterior lights blink three times when you unlock the
doors. Check the vehicle for tampering.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you
remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE
transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed
(after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit,
the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm. You may also accidentally disarm the
Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver’s door
with the key and then locking it. The door will be locked
but the Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm.

NOTE:
• Unlocking the doors with the manual door lock plungers
or the driver’s door lock cylinder will not disarm
the Vehicle Security Alarm.
• When the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed, the interior
power door lock switches will not unlock the doors.

Using the electric lock button on the door to lock the doors will arm the alarm.
Using the manual lock on the inner door handle will not.
Or using the key to manually lock and unlock your doors will not arm the alarm.

Is there an additional manual I can get from Jeep for my 2012 that has additional info than the small manual the Jeep came with? I've seen in other posts that one can get a manual by calling to request one... Is this right?

You can. If you call Jeep and ask for the manual, they'll take your name and address, as well as the VIN number, and send out a manual, and some other book. It's not something you'll keep in the glove box, but I did it as soon as I got mine home. I think it took 2-3 weeks to arrive. It's not the most useful thing ever, but something I feel I paid for when I bought it that they felt they could save a few bucks on.

Oh, also, I think this is the 2012 full one, but double check before taking my word for it.
