Key Fob

I lost one of my key fob's, bought a new one, is there an easy way to program it myself on my 2014 GC. The dealers want a lot of money to program it, but the key that it came with is a blank, will the key need to be cut for the fob to work? any help is appreciated!

Re: Key Fob

Unfortunately, it needs to be programmed by someone with the proper equipment to do so...and that pretty much means a dealer. The metal key needs to be cut so it can be used to open the vehicle if there is an electrical failure.

Depends on the area.
..... and whether you've bothered to get to know the dealer, service manager, the writers, etc.
