FOB Key Auto Security Device Blocks Transponder Signal Deters Vehicle Theft - monroe auto parts - backpage.com

This will also work ,It will Disables Transponder Signal

otherwise someone can just open your door and start you Jeep

And last but not least you can wrap your Key Fob in tinfoil and that will disable the key fob also

Re: Place to hide your keys/external lockbox options?

Bart Man has the right idea.

The fob is a radio key so needs to be contained inside a fully metal container. You can then use the valet key to lock the vehicle and go swimming with it.

Re: Place to hide your keys/external lockbox options?

UPDATE:

I am yet to find a good solution to be able to lock the vehicle with the radio key inside. This is to be able to go underwater (swimming, etc) with the valet key only so nobody needs to see you hide the radio key externally.

Surprisingly, the radio key inside a tin box is still detectable. Aluminium foil wrapped around the radio key is most effective and a simple way to block the transmitter.

Locking using the radio key enables the security alarm, so re-entry with the valet key will sound the alarm. So this is not an option.

With all doors manually locked the valet key can unlock the driver door. The problem is that the rear hatch cannot be manually locked and will remain unlocked without the use of the radio key.

Re: Place to hide your keys/external lockbox options?

I bought a NON Proximity alert key off eBay for $40 and had it programmed for $50. It does everything it's supposed to but has no proximity sensor thing. I think it's a non SRT late 2010 key, same exact key physically as 11-13. I have 2 regular keys and one key in a tight fitting pelican like case wrapped in a $100 bill and plastic that is in a place you'd have to know.
It was harder to find a good case than the non proximity key. I'll find the part number later.

Re: Place to hide your keys/external lockbox options?

Anyone try one of these? Once locked inside, the fob is in a metal case which should theoretically block the fobs radio waves

Yes, these have been mentioned a few times. However, a few members that have used them, found theirs rusted & seized up, after a winter driving season! They were not able to open them without smashing them to bits with a hammer & chisel!! No thanks!

The valet key sits inside the key fob. It is the metal section and released by sliding a release tab.

Thanks. Our Acura had a third key for the valet. I thought the Jeep may have been missing one.
