+1 this on Bill's note. My Durango was freakish on how the passive entry and button locked for the first few days, then all the sudden it worked perfectly ever since. There is also the two Fobs thing we have talked about a few times. Make sure your second fob isn't near an open door when locking. Car might think it is inside, had this happen on the RAM once this weekend, I opened and closed the door once that seemed to put it back in sync.

Failing that ask Bill if you can borrow one of his Gremlins I can attest to the high quality of their Jeep modifications .... You may need some of his Gremlin food too.

It will not unlock or lock via the door handle. Have to use the key fob, and the other fob is 12 miles away, so I know that's not the problem. Definitely some gremlins here, it also won't start the ac and fan when I use remote start. Dealer knows nothing about this, but another member posted somewhere how there's a fix for that in quarter 3. Frustrating but could be worse

Re: passive entry problems

One other thing that worked for someone with a different issue.

Uncheck the feature with the car running. Turn off the car, open and close the drivers door. After all the interior light go out, indicating that everything is shut down, restart the car and recheck the feature. Shut the car off, get out and give it a try.

The sensor for the passive entry is in the trunk. Mine was loose and I was able to fix myself. Have to remenber where it is. Give me a few.

This would make sense, I got stuff out if the trunk and then it didn't work.

Re: passive entry problems

Mine had been working fine, but today, I opened the truck from the fob, and after closing it, I wasn't able to lock the car from the door handle button.

After a minute or so it started working again.

Can you give us the location of where the passive entry sensor is located? Maybe the one on mine is faulty because using the keyfob, it requires 4 clicks (instead of 2) to open the liftgate.

This morning I had a service keyless entry system message. So I'm guess I either have a loose wire on the sensor, or the sensor went bad. Did you have a message about your system jdchamp?

Today, the passive entry system worked. Didn't do anything to it, so I'm guessing if it fails again I must have a loose wire. Gremlins
