So i recently figured out that my '12 Jeep Compass has some type of theft deterrent alarm system in it. I don't know if it's aftermarket, or if it came standard/optioned. (I bought the car used).

If I open the driver door with the standard key alone (when locked and not using key-less entry), the alarm is completely different than the one that sounds when pressing the panic button, and the car can not be started unless it has been unlocked by the original key.

I found this out when I had keys made, as the car came with only one key (wtf), and I tried starting the car and it wouldn't even give power. Clearly stopping the engine from any power to prevent gta. If this system is standard, can I turn it off/disarm it?

Just curious. Thanks!

You'll need a programmed chip key like the original one for it to work.
