Default How to disable or re set VTSS on 99 gr cherokee

I got a 99 grand cherokee which has the security system locked. I was told the prior owner used the wrong key . I can get the jeep to start but it will shut off in a few seconds and there is a key with a circle 7 line thru it lit up on the dash.

I have researched and found countless remedies on line but non work .

I know someone on here has had this situation or heard of a fix.

Please help or point me to a thread which discusses this because I cant find any

We had a truck at work have this happen a long time back. I do know if the thing has a gray key it can have as many as 8 different keys programed to it. one way used to reset stuff like this was to cycle the door lock on the drivers door. if you have the correct key cycle the key through the door before you attempt to put it in the column.

on the flip side if you have to have a new key programed in its a dealer only function with a DRB

So you took a gamble on that thing off craigslist, huh? Looked like good deal if you get it worked out.

Yes I did and it looks really good small dent in drivers rocker and surface rust on pass rocker , a few small scratches but the rest looks good. If I can just get past the security :) . I got it for my daughter to be a mall crusier ...she may be just sitting in our driveway for a while.

Only fix I could find was take it to the dealer and have it reprogrammed with a new key. cost was under $100.00 .
