Lock all but the drivers door from the inside using the lock knobs, do not use the electric locks, close and use the key to lock the drivers door, wait at least 30 seconds, then using the key unlock the drivers door, open it up. that should disarm the system, if it doesn't then there is a programming error in the security system or the chip in the key has went bye bye.

My Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 has the key stuck o. The door and don't let me take it out .

The key does not fit driver side door. THEY put a different door on driver side.. so can't lock Jeep have no way to get door open...


Call a locksmith, he can pick out the code and cut a key for that door, but you will still need the the first kept for the ignition.
