2014 GC Key Fob

I very rarely carry keys on me, so carrying this big fob around is an annoyance. I know other car companies offer the key fob with the unlock/lock/etc and a simple keycard that goes in your wallet. Does anyone know if it is possible to get a key fob that looks like a wallet size key card programmed to work with the 2014 Jeep GC? Who actually uses the fob buttons when you can just touch the handle?? I can see the remote start feature, that's about all.

Re: 2014 GC Key Fob

I found this on another forum. Would be great if someone could test it see if it works.

Front Windows: You can roll them down with the remote. Just unlock the Jeep, let go of the button, and then immediately push the button and hold. It takes about 2 seconds before they start going down, and then they go until you release the button

P.S.
The first MY2014 the dealer ordered with the CD player is in paint acording to VOT's. The reordered one, to my exact specs is still in pre release, Now I am really getting ants in my pants.

MDX has it so the second click and hold opens all windows and sunroof. To close them all at once you need to use a key ... lock and hold.

So it's all possible.

Re: 2014 GC Key Fob

With my 11 jeep the windows rolled down with the key fob , but with my 14 I haven't got it to work . They might have deleted that option.

I don't have a WK2 yet, but I read somewhere that they no longer do that.

Jeep took that feature out starting with the 12's.

I am guessing someone some where accidently opened their widows, it raind and they blamed Chrysler for water damage but, that's just a guess on why they took it out.

Clip your key fob to one of your belt loops each morning and you don't have to worry about it...it will always be with you.

Re: 2014 GC Key Fob

Ok, that's a good point. How about with a neck lanyard? You can be completely naked and still have your fob handy. (it's unlikely you will not be wearing your neck and head....)
