ANOTHER elec GREMLIN rears its ugly head...

Yet another in a long list...If any one can help or advise, it would be appreciated. Several dozen times now...When tuning the ignition key "off", the alarm will automatically sound....not always but frequent. I originally thought that I might have been accidentally pressing the "panic" button on the key when turning vehicle "on", but thats not the case. To stop the alarm sounding, I press the panic button and it stops. Very annoying to neighbors (especially late night) and scares the sh*t outa people at the gas pumps. Does anyone know what is causing this to happen? BTW...my jk has the factory alarm syst, and power door lock/ power window option.

Lots of views, but no help ...guess i am SOL on this issue...I was really hoping someone else at the LEAST, had this problem...if not a solution...wish my name was HOTJESSE...:shaking:
My biggest fear is scaring the sh*t outa some redneck and havin them beat my a**. I was hoping that someone else on the forum had actually experienced the problem and could tell me what code, etc was creating the problem...although your advice is greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU very much for responding!
Sorry can't help you but two pushes of my unlock causes the neighbor's subaru to sound the panic. Kind of fun to mess with them! <grin>
Despite my problem that STILL happens (totally random:shaking:)...THAT is TOTALLY funny. I can imagine your neighbors scratching their heads, goin- "WTF?:pissed:"
I"m convinced that the Chrysler design engineers put a Gen Tao voodoo curse on the JK. They really should've renamed the Wrangler...The AMC Gremlin ( amc...standing for: Always Motivating Confusion...)
number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine...:bawling:

The engineers have also hidden a satellite tracking unit that will automatically reset all gremlins to neutral when within one mile of any authorized jeep dealership...so that when you pull in to ask the service tech whats going on....the weird behavior refuses to duplicate.:devil:

I agree...The only thing holding the JK's head above water... is the off road capabilities...although the voodoo usually comes right back when you put it back in 2wd and hit the road... :shaking:
The only "random feature" I have right now is sometimes when I start it the 4WD light is on until I put it in gear. Knock on wood.
*That's another new one to me...:shaking:

I SWEAR...someone needs to start a thread on all of the "strange, unexplained, random, (and apparently unrelated) electrical/ computer glitches that are infecting so many JK's. It would read like "the never-ending story"! :bawling:
