Does anyone know how to disable the immobiliser without the remote? i can obviously get into the car and switch the ignition on but the engine just won't start.

It is funny that you should bring this up. When I was in a wreck and totalled my previous ZJ, I got a rental from the insurance company of the lady that hit me. I had two rentals- a chevy and a chrysler. I noticed that neither of them had an exterior lock to put the key in on the passenger side door. I assume that this is done to save money on the purchase price for the rental agency. I mentioned this to the guy at the Jeep dealership and he said that it really is necessary to have the passenger side key hole on your vehicle if it is equipped with a keyless entry and alarm system. When I asked why, he said that if you lose the keyless entry fob or the batteries in it die, if you insert the key in the passenger door lock it will disable the alarm system. I've tried this on my '98 ZJ by setting off the alarm and inserting the key in the passenger door and sure enough, it shuts off the alarm. I don't know if this is really the answer to your question, but it is useful information to know.
