Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee fob problems

try changing the battery...
ensure the contact points are clean.

have also seen good batteries with dirty contact points.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee fob problems

I bent the tangs in the fob for better contact with the fresh battery. Much better results than just changing the battery.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee fob problems

I as well am having problems with the fob not being recognized after all of the troubleshooting thats been mentioned, prongs, battery, etc. I have also had an issue with my lock actuators going bad (2) so far chrysler says that there are not any other problems like this being reported however on both the fob and the new actuators there have been lengthy backorders........hmmmmmmmm
