Is it possible the dealership will "claim" they can't program/reprogram a key fob from elsewhere just to get you to buy a new one from them? These people can be slimey at times!

That is irrelevant. It is used, therefore purchased as is unless you request specific changes.

Personally, if it was that dealership that purchased/traded it from the original purchaser, I would ask if they could contact them to see if they had the other fob. It is extremely common that only one key comes in with the car and the owner simply forgets the other keys.
When I was looking to trade my old car, they were shocked I had both fobs and the 3rd valet key.
I still have that valet key as I forgot to give it to the people that purchased it off me.

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

Greetings,

Since the JGC has been purchased used, you can check with your local state requirements if you are suppose to be provided with 2 sets of keys under the used sales agreements or used car guarantee laws.

The dealer is most likely siting the as is clause. Which in their case makes them look like a idiot by not providing a quality consumer relationship over a couple of bills.

Best for now.

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

Just got my spare key fob from eBay....stupid question, can the dealership program AND cut the key or do I need to go Home Depot/Lowes to get it cut?

They can do both but getting it cut most anywhere else would be less.

Stupid question #2, with automotive keys, is there some special "chip" on the key itself? Or is it just an ordinary key (like house keys) that only need to be duplicated to work?

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

I got my WK2 from a dealer, on delivery they couldn't find the key, they sent me a new one. I then took it to a second dealer and they programmed and cut it for $50. The original dealer then gave me $50. So the cost was $50 for the programming and cutting.

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

Key fob update:
Good news: Jeep dealer successfully programmed the fob! Bad news: it only works for locking/unlocking, remote start and power liftgate. It will NOT let me drive with it. The "keyless-go" feature does not work. The truck doesn't recognize the key is present so it won't fully start. Kinda sucks. Unless there's a way to override the system to make it recognize this new fob, i will probably need to get another one from the dealership 😩
