Re: MY14 keyfob question

Could someone take a pic of the new MY14 remote so we can all see how it looks? I know for one that I am curious to see it.

THanks! JAmes

Re: MY14 keyfob question

They're pretty plain looking, square, typical remote keyfobs.

Thanks, Rof. As I said before, I learn something every time I am on this site. You can see and read about the new fob in the User Guide and Owner's Manual which are on the Official Jeep website under the Owner's tab.

Re: MY14 keyfob question

The '14 fob does indeed hold a regular key - you don't use that to start the car, though; that's used to lock the glovebox (in case you want to put something of value in there) then you keep the key and give the fob to a valet. You can also use the key to unlock the driver or passenger door if the battery in the fob dies, then start the car by touching the fob end opposite of where the key slides out to the start button on the dash.

Re: MY14 keyfob question

Is turning a key so difficult that they had to come up with a new system that needs batteries? And, they still have to hide a key inside the computer thingy. I've never owned car with the key less start, but I had a loaner from Acura a couple of times. I never felt that just having to press the button, instead of turning a key, was a big step forward in convenience.

What's everyone's opinions on this?

Re: MY14 keyfob question

The convenience is not having to take the fob/key out of your pants, jacket, briefcase, purse, etc. After you live with it for a little while, you'll realize the convenience.

I said the same thing until I got used to a car that has the keyless entry and start. Its so convenient not to have to get the keys out of your pocket to unlock the doors or the hatch, or to lock the doors, or to start the vehicle. Especially a big deal for a woman who has to dig through a purse to find keys.

I will never buy another car without the feature.

Ain't that the truth! I'm getting pretty old and when I first got the '11 GC with the keyless I thought it was just technology for technology's sake. Two years later and I really get annoyed when I have to dig my pickup truck's key fob and key out of my pocket to open the door and stick the key in the ignition. They wife has been jealous of that feature too and it just cost me a 2014 Limited for her.

Re: MY14 keyfob question

Those add on deals don't work as well as the built in systems obviously...

Re: MY14 keyfob question

A luxury once enjoyed becomes a necessity. I guess there were people who preferred hand cranking their engine when electric starters came out. Seriously, female family members (or anyone who carries a handbag) tell me pushbutton starter is much preferred over fishing around for the key in their handbags.
