Replacement Key Fob $620

Hello to all

Unfortunately we lost a Key Fob a couple of months ago and really expected it to turn up around home, but alas it hasn't.

So the Jeep dealer wants $620 for a new fob that includes programming.

Wow! Might have to get a "Key Finder" on the next key ring.....

Yeah, someone over at AJOR had the same problem, doesn't seem to be any cheap solutions around.

Re: Replacement Key Fob $620

You can get them for under US$150 in the USA.
Typical Australia Tax. I am sure a dealer would program one for $50.

Re: Replacement Key Fob $620

$160 to program. Dealer reckons that they can't program the US ones as they don't work.

But how would we ever really know?

I had a simmilar problem with a VW key. VW wanted somthing in the region of $500, can't remember now. I bought one on ebay for $65, took it to them and they said they couldn't do it. Ended up finding a copy of the VW VAGCOM software (it happened to be in German) so I had a mates mate translate for me, and within an hour it was programmed and working.
