Re: Key has left vehicle?

I had this several times, once after related TSB was perfomed. Also have "key is not detected" sometimes (more often).

Re: Key has left vehicle?

This happened to me this morning. I just had the TSB performed for the alarm randomly going off. However it went away after about 30 seconds and I was able to start the Jeep.

EDIT: It was a key not detected message, the Jeep was off when I got it.

Re: Key has left vehicle?

I get this when a either one of the front doors are opened whilst the vehicle idles. I then have to turn it off and lock and unlock the car.

Re: Key has left vehicle?

Mine will alert if you move a few inches left of the steering wheel. On the other hand, I don't recall having to cycle the ignition to clear the message. The transponder for the key is a lil below your radio.

Re: Key has left vehicle?

I have a question...left the Jeep running this morning with the key in my pocket and when I came back, I was getting a chime and the "Key has Left Vehicle" message on EVIC. The only way to reset was to shut the vehicle off and re-start. Is this the expected behavior? I did a quick search of the Owner's Manual and couldn't find anything...

As I stated above, I've never had to cycle the ignition after returning with key in hand regardless if use the button on the door handle or leave the vehicle unlocked.

Got it...but in my case I got an expected alert when I took the key away from the vehicle.

I'll have to investigate this further and mention it to the dealer...

Re: Key has left vehicle?

I have walked away and left it running several times. The chime and message do come on but stop as I re-open the door. I have never had to re-start it to clear the message/chime.
