Programming key FOB to memory

I got my white/saddle overland today and it looks great. I have tried unsuccessfully to program my key Fob to my memory settings. The instructions say to press a settings button (1 or 2) and then press and release the lock button on the key Fob. This should be done with the ignition in the off mode. I am then instructed to turn the ignition to the on mode and the EVIC allows me to select yes to the question remote link to memory. I do not get this message although there is a RKE link to memory option under system setup. What am I missing here?

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

Disregard this post. The manual was wrong, one only needs to press s then 1 or 2 then lock on the key fob.

Thanks for interpreting the instructions Ken. I couldn't figure out what the manual was saying. You've saved me a lot of time and frustration.

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

Thanks! I didn't realize I could program the key fob for this.

(I should probably read the manual one of these days)

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

Yeah, but then you need to press the Unlock button on the key fob for it to move the seat, mirrors and steering wheel to the memorized positions for that driver number. This defeats the purpose of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE). If I'm going to have to push a button anyway, I prefer to not have to take the key fob out of my pocket, so I open the door via the RKE feature and just push the number 2 button on the door panel as I get in (My wife is number 1 of course).

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

Sean,

Here is how I enter my WK2. I walk out to the locked car with key FOB in pocket. I touch the driver's door handle and it unlocks. I open the door and the seat is fully back, the steering wheel is fully forward. I sit down and press the start button. My customized settings are put into place including seat, steering wheel, mirrors, etc. The key FOB is still in my pocket.

Ken

Or, for those who don't have the easy entry/exit configured you touch the door and the seat, steering wheel, mirrors and radio presets adjust to the setting linked to the FOB in your pocket. You don't need to press the unlock button on the FOB.

Agree. You do nto need to take out the fob. My only difference is that I dont like the seat moving back at exit so I shut that off.

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

Thanks for the simple instructions. Just spent 20 minutes following the book, didn't work. Spent 30 seconds on jeepgarage and 15 seconds later I was rocking.

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

So in order to have the car adjust to your personalized setting without taking out the key fob, you'll need to program the two key fobs separately, each with its own customized seat-side mirror-steering wheel positions. Am I reading it right?

Re: Programming key FOB to memory

That is correct, two drivers, two sets of settings, and one key FOB for each driver.
