Key fob battery for Trailhawk

Hi,
A friend of mine was wondering about his key fob for his new 2016 Trailhawk.

If the battery dies (I know that it should be a LONG time before this happens), is the Jeep still able to start? He's asking since there is no "plan b" to start the Jeep (i.e., the hidden key in the fob is just for unlocking the door, not starting the engine).

Re: Key fob battery for Trailhawk

Your friend should learn to read his owners manual,


But, if the battery fails you press the start button with the key fob.

Yeah! RTFM. I should have just told him that.

Thanks for the info.

Something the designers thought about! They put the same passive systrm into the fib that most normal ignition keys use now so as mentioned above, simply push the start button with the fob and good to go.
