Security Key Fob

Anyone know how to remove this system? I believe mine is giving me trouble.

Every time I get into my Jeep to drive I have to Push the button a few times to get the motor to fire up (otherwise it just cranks like it wants to start but never does) I also have to bump the gas a little (this I am sure is the Fuel injectors but thats another problem for another day.

Currently my Headlight plunger broke and I am having to replace the main component because the grabber is failing to grab the plunger and hold it in place so the mechanism will work. After I realized this was the issue and how to fix it I went to move my jeep and she wouldnt start , the red led (security light) was flashing and my key fob ignition kill switch button is not deactivating it. Is there an underlying issue here or will removing the security system fix it? make it worse?

OK, I must ask, what year is your jeep? If its anything 2007 or newer you are in the wrong section and would be wanting the JK section. I dont have push button start in my 1995 or 2005. Not busting your chops, just wanting you to be able to find the help you need. The YJ section probably wont have a clue.

EDIT: I see from your profile you drive a 1997 TJ Wrangler. Do you have a remote start, or is this part of an alarm? I dont have an alarm because of such issues in the past on other vehicles.

Have you changed the battery in the fob?

Found this on another forum. Might help.

Thankfully the aftermarket alarm that was in my tj was removed by the PO.

I've removed quite a few aftermarket alarms, and have debated removing the one in my TJ.

is it easy to do? is there a trick to bypassing its trigger so my jeep will start without the system or it as easy as following wires and unplugging the system?

As indicated it is aftermarket and yes it can be removed/disabled but ease of doing so will somewhat be determined by where the module was tucked away and how it was actually installed. The fact that you have to turn it off inducates that the valet mode (automatic arm) is enabled. If you could disable the valet, you could leave the alarm off. Step one would be to try to determine the brand and find some instructions. It does not look like there is a brand on the fob. If there is any sort of part number, Google it

I'd stop by a few alarm shops and see if they recognize the remote and maybe they can help with how to change the mode or disable the system.

Simple solution...I just unplugged the black box to the system and she started right up! Attached are some pics for future questions about its location (under the steering wheel I removed the plastic and metal covers)

I was already under my steering wheel to change my headlight plunger switch and noticed a black box connected to the LED of the security system, so I unplugged it thinking this would reset it and figured what the heck ill try to crank her up and she started!
