MY15 Overland. Keyless entry is sh1t

Barely works at the best of times. Car has 4500kms on the clock

Wtf, seriously? Im standing right near the door and nothing happens when pressing the button.

Driving me mad.

Is this a known issue or am i pressing the button wrong

Cheers Jeep Gurus!

Re: MY15 Overland. Keyless entry is sh1t

Do you mean when you unlock or when you lock the door? My 2014 overland lock button on the handle is intermitent also if that's what you mean. It's pretty annoying

You shouldn't have to press the button when you unlock it - just have the key fob in your pocket and grab the handle, wait a second and open the door.

When locking the vehicle with the button, make sure you are not touching the back of the handle.

Not yet, but I've seen some other threads talking about this issue before. I have ordered a new battery to try it out but I kinda doubt it's going to change anything. Also, even if I haven't tried it very often, the passenger side button seems to work every time for me. Could be a bad door lock button.

MY14 Overland. No issues with the keyless entry thus far.

I will say my only irk is I have to grab front handle to unlock doors and open back doors. Why not have the keyless entry on the back handles as well?

Re: MY15 Overland. Keyless entry is sh1t

If u r unlocking u just put your hand in behind the handle like u r grabbing the handle, the button is for locking only.

Re: MY15 Overland. Keyless entry is sh1t

I've had issues with mine also.. The key would be in my pocket and I'm right next to the car and I put my hand behind the handle to try and open and it does nothing. I literally have to take the keys out at times for the doors to open. It's really annoying because if I'm less than a foot away from the car it should open the door. My friend who drives an MDX if he walks close "5 feet or so" to his car his car I guess knows he's there and responds unlike my Jeep which seems to have an inferior keyless system.
