Passenger door passive entry not working...

My passenger door passive entry (door handle sensor) is no longer working. Unlock sensor or lock button on handle are completely unresponsive. Drivers side works fine. I recently had body work done to right front and im wondering if something may have been unplugged. Also during this process the shop guy did some weird stuff with the passive entry when trying to lock my key fob inside the car. Not exactly sure what he did but he did say he held the handle and did something weird to be able to lock the keys inside without the car rejecting it.

Any ideas??

2014 summit is on a distinguished road
Re: Passenger door passive entry not working...

WE ahve been having trouble with our 2014 GC Summit. The drivers side door would have to be tried a couple of times before it would lock or un lock. They said they couldn't duplicate it. Funny, when my wife picked up the Jeep it wouldn't unlock on the first try. She thought maybe it was because the key fob was in her purse and her purse was hanging on her shoulder behind her. Who knows, I've had a different fob in my front pocket and still had the same issues. I thought maybe I didn't push or pull the switches hard enough but I don't think that's the problem.

Re: Passenger door passive entry not working...

Have you had any more issues or had the dealer look at it anymore??

Just thought I would let others know I had some body work done and they were able to reset the passive entry with their computer and everything is working well. Must have just been a software glitch. Simple fix way better than waiting in service line at dealer!

Re: Passenger door passive entry not working...

When mine starts taking multiple pushes or no response from the door handle buttons - time for another new remote battery. My original batteries only made it 5-6 months and the replacements typically only last 6-9 months. A few months ago the button started acting a bit funky when I parked it in the morning, and by noon I had to use the key to get in and then it would not start. Good thing I carry an extra battery in the glovebox as a backup. These Chrysler remotes are an "active" design that "broadcasts" continuously, therefore the short battery life. In the old days, remote fobs only sent a signal when you pushed the button, and lasted for 2-3 years. Batteries are cheap, I buy the CR2032's from Amazon in 10-packs delivered for $6.25:

Re: Passenger door passive entry not working...

My Summit is 6 months old. Are you saying if the battery is low in the key fob, that would cause the actual button on the driver door handle to take 4-5 pushes instead of one and/or the liftgate to take 4 pushes rather than 2? Is the driver door handle routed thru the fob?

Re: Passenger door passive entry not working...

Yes, yes and...yes to your questions. Did you try replacing the fob battery? You ask a question, and then question the answer. It will cost you a $2 battery to try it. The fob transmits continuously so the vehicle knows it is OK to unlock the doors for you. The doors will not unlock if they do not sense the programmed matched fob. There are multiple short-range antennas in your GC, including one around the perimeter of the spare tire well (for tailgate operation). The fob will start operating randomly as the battery gets weak and then eventually not at all, requiring you to use the fob manual key to unlock the door. And possibly having to remove the dash pushbutton and use the end of the fob to start. There are many discussions of this on the forum. Do a search if you do not like my answers.

You ever notice how your TV remote control buttons start to require multiple pushes, or operate poorly when the batteries get low? The difference is your TV remote (and old style passive automotive remote controls) only sends a signal when you push a button. The GC Enter-n-Go system fob is always sending a signal.

How old is the OEM battery in your fob? How long was it in the parts bin at the factory? How long from your GC manufacture date to today? The OEM battery started using and losing power the instant it was installed in the fob at the factory.
