I think that only the dealer can help you out for the programming of the remotes. Did you get new ones or did the old ones stop working?

I actually had this done yesterday since my wife lost & daughter lost both of my remotes. You can either go to the dealer or call around & find a auto locksmith. While.he was doing it,I looked through one of his books & if you have a working factory remote then you actually don't need a scan tool.

In fact you don't program the remotes, but you program the remote keyless entry module (which is part of the passenger door module) with the access codes of the remotes. You do need a DRBIII scan tool to do this.

I was looking in his car manual that he had me hold while he was working with the scan tool. I also saw the same thing when I did a google search. When I get off work,I'll find it.Basically in his book it said you have to have a working factory key fob not a aftermarket one for this to work.
If I remember it right it goes:1-open the door with your factory remote;
2-get in close the door;3-open the door & lock the door manually;4-turn the key to the on position;5-wait 10-20 seconds & then hold the lock button until you hear the power locks move;6-press unlock to make sure it works.I may have 3 and 4 mixed up,I'm not sure.
The manual said this works for 99 - 04 jeep grand cherokees.He told me he usually uses this method for other grand cherokees that need to program extra remotes.I was about a block or two away from his house before I realized that one of his books was still in my jeep.Before you ask,of course I turned around and took it back.I remember him telling me that book cost a couple of hundred dollars.

Re: How to reprogram remote keyless entry for 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd.

Did you try the procedure given by Uniquetreatone? He says that you should have one working factory key fob for this procedure.
When i bought my car, it came only with one key/fob. So i bought both new and the stealer programmed it for me.

You MUST have TWO working remotes in order to program a new one yourself, otherwise you have to see a dealer.

Re: How to reprogram remote keyless entry for 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd.

This procedure is for the sentry key Milous, if you have 2 originals of them, you can program others yourself. This procedure doesn´t work for the key fob.

You are correct, I was thinking of the integrated keys in the WK.

There was a TSB regarding reprogramming, but it doesn't mention the 2004 WJ. But have a look, maybe you can do something with it:
