This was deleted in later build dates as some complained that the flipper glass button was either accidently or unknowlingly being triggered, which disengages the motorized hatch function until re-closing the flipper glass.

You may find a few folks willing to swap out old vs new FOBIK's with you.

Re: Key Fob

Shoot, I didn't know they deleted that. I use that button all the time.

You can buy replacement key fobs on ebay, with whatever options you want, for around $100. According to the directions you need your two original key fobs to program.

I'd have to imagine that Jeep only deleted the button on the key fob for later build dates and not the feature itself as the button on the rear liftgate is still present.

Re: Key Fob

You actually need to go to the dealer to get the key fob programmed. The WK2 is different than other older jeeps. I've been through this already. Trust me.
