I have a hard time when I paid almost 50k for a vehicle not caring when it dosn't work correctly. I know its not a big deal, but in just isn't right and I like it to be right that's why I bought a new car not a used one.

yeah I hear you guys, So if or when they fix it, let me know what it was that they had to do and I will tell my dealer.

That's very interesting, another problem to tell them about. However, I think mine is leaking ps fluid or oil. This doesn't smell like burning carpet.

Re: Locking my jeep

Aside from the couple of times it's honked at me 3 times and unlocked, it is pretty damn annoying having to finesse pressing the lock button (on the door handle), hoping it will work the first time. Usually it takes me about 2-3 times to get it to lock. It shouldn't be that way.

My last car worked flawlessly each time, one press in and out. But that's probably because it was a BMW. :/

Re: Locking my jeep

I love how you say "Finesse". It really sucks when you expect it to just work on the first press and then as everyone else has walked away, while you're still pressing it watching the mirrors blink.
I just have to go old school and use the FOB.

Re: Locking my jeep

Mine worked great for the first 8 months and just started doing this I wish it would just stop working altogether so I can take it in and get it fixed.

Re: Locking my jeep

Lol, so the dealer just called me and went over a few things with me and said the tech couldn't find anything wrong with the key n go. I told him to go try it again and again until I pick it up tomorrow.

Re: Locking my jeep

My dealer service department couldn't get the passenger door lock button to fail today, too...but it takes three tries every time I try to use it! Gremlins....

Re: Locking my jeep

Damn, lol maybe I should read the owners manual.
I just read something interesting under the Key n go notes.

* After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait 2 seconds before you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to check if the vehicle is locked by pulling on the door handle without the vehicle reacting and unlocking.*

That's about how long it takes to press the button 2-3 times. I'll try it when I pick it up from the dealer later on today. Press once and wait 2 secs to press again for locks to engage.
My unlock works flawless, only locking is my issue. Must be more patient for 2 secs!

Re: Locking my jeep

This may be silly and you have all thought of it, but...

After reading through this thread and having had the issue myself a bit, I thought about how the handle works and realized I was doing it to myself.

When you go to unlock the vehicle, you just put your fingers around the handle and it unlocks. What I didn't think through at first was if you put your fingers in the handle when you press the lock button, the handle is being asked to both unlock and lock the vehicle at the same time.

So, starting Saturday up to and including today, I have been careful to just press the button without putting my fingers into the handle, and so far, it has locked every time.

Hope this helps at least someone
