plastic key won't start jeep

I have a 2011 Grand Cherokee lorado. It has not started with the auto start for over a year now. I have been starting it w/the fob (or plastici key) for a while now. I put the key in the ignition this morning, and nothing happened. It did not turn on the accessory nor did it start the jeep. I live in S.E. Alaska, on an island. Are there any suggestions? The lights work, the battery seems to be charged. And by all other means, it appears to just be the ignition. However, I am not a mechanic..... And the nearest dealer is Juneau, or Washington... And thoughts?

Did you try putting a new battery in the FOB?

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Re: plastic key won't start jeep

I did not. But, I have two fob's and I wouldn't have thought both fobs would be low battery at once. I will change the battery and give it a try, as I really, really don't want to send this out of town... :-) Thank you for responding. I will let you know. http://jeepgarage.org/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif
