Q: Jeep won't start due to alarm

asked by on

My jeep won't start. The alarm system won't allow it to turn over and the WCM appears to have failed. I tried resetting the alarm by pulling the fuse, but nothing happened when I did.

The WCM (Wireless Control Module) or antitheft system has issues that it is affected by static discharge when you enter the key and it locks you out. The WCM/SKREEM (Sentry Key Remote Entry Module) will need to be replaced with the new part numbers and programmed using a factory scanner.
