How To: Program Extra Key FOB 05-08 WK's

Since my old Key FOB sometimes worked I had to buy another key. My Spare key, the ring holder broke off so I couldn't really carry it around with me. So I purchased a new one off eBay and made sure it was the correct one. I got it cut at a Local Licensed Dealer key cutting place and programmed it myself. I saved about $150.


***YOU MUST HAVE 2 OTHER KEYS TO PROGRAM THE NEW THIRD KEY***

ADD Duplicate Key-MUST have two Programmed already!

1. Insert one of the two valid keys into the ignition lock and turn the ON (RUN) position.

2. After the key has been in the ON position for atleast five seconds, but no more than15 seconds turn the lock back to OFF.

3. Remove the Key and insert the second valid key and turn to the ON position within 15 seconds. (The second Key must not be the same as the first key)

4. A theft alarm light should illuminate after ten seconds and a single chime sound will indicate entry into the Customer Programming Mode.

5. Turn the key to the OFF position within 60 seconds and remove the Valid key.

6. Insert a new key and turn to the ON position.

7. After appoximately ten seconds, a single chime will sound and the theft alarm will stop. Wait Five seconds and turn to the OFF position.

Yes it did! Works great! No more getting locked out--then unlocking it--and hearing the alarm--and disabling it!

Go on eBay! Look carefully also while choosing which one to see what buttons you have on the Key FOB so you can match it. And make sure it says Jeep on the Back of the Key FOB Casing.

Re: How To: Program Extra Key FOB 05-08 WK's

I have an extra key for my 05 grand cherokee and it is not cut or programed yet. I really want to get it working but have been wondering if I have to take it to a Jeep dealer or if I can just take it to a certified locksmith that works on automotive keys? Has anyone been able to get a working key from a non dealer service?

How many Keys do you have? You NEED two to program the new (Third) key. That's what I did.

I didn't take it to the dealership to get it cut. I got it cut for $3 at a local Locksmith I had in my area. They cut it and I programmed it myself!

If you don't have 2 Keys then you HAVE to go to a dealership and get it programmed.

It wasn't the battery in my case. I replaced the battery in the key Fob and I found out that it was the internals in the key fob wearing out. So I bought a factory one of eBay and took care of everything else.
