Deliberately lock FOB inside vehicle

If you want to know how to intentionally lock your FOB inside your Cherokee like for surfing or other sports where you don't have pockets and can't get the fob wet, then here's how you do it. I Couldn't find anything online about it, so I played around w mine and this is what I came up w. It works.

-While in vehicle, lock the doors using the FOB.
-Remove the emergency key from FOB and place the FOB somewhere out of sight.
-Open driver door.
-Shut driver door, and lock from outside w emergency key.

Here's another option that worked for me but it is a little more work, and more potential to lock the emergency key in w the FOB whereas the first method forces you to make sure you have the emergency key.

-Remove emergency key from the FOB and place the FOB somewhere out of site in the vehicle.
-manually lock all doors individually.
-AGAIN, with this method make sure you have the emergency key before locking the last door unless you are leaving the FOB in the car for someone else to pick up w another FOB, like at the airport or something.

Anyhow, couldn't/still can't cind anything on the web for this, so I just had to play w it. Spread the word. I'm sure there's more surfers out there scratching their heads after buying a keyless car and wondering how to secure their vehicle while in the water.

Re: Deliberately lock FOB inside vehicle

Of course instead of searching the internet, you could have used the retro method to find the information, namely the owners manual.

NOTE:
The vehicle will only unlock the doors when a
valid Passive Entry RKE transmitter is detected inside the
vehicle, and no valid Passive Entry RKE transmitter is
detected outside the vehicle.
The vehicle will not unlock
the doors when any of the following conditions are true:

The doors are manually locked using the door lock
knobs.

There is a valid Passive Entry RKE transmitter outside
the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of either Passive
Entry door handle.

Three attempts are made to lock the doors using the

door panel switch and then close the doors.

Re: Deliberately lock FOB inside vehicle

Good call bill_d. I was looking in the "key fob" section before looking on the net. If I would have looked down 3 more lines to the "keyless enter-n-go" I would have seen the try three times method. I tried it that way and it obviously worked, but the alarm went off opening it each time I tried. Prob doing something wrong. Anyhow, there's now two more options that for sure won't set off the alarm w out having to do anything to alarm settings or anything thanks to mild stupidity ha. Thanks bro.
