Remote comparability

I've got a 2014 JGC that I've had for a month or so. Last night my wife and I went to the dealer to pickup the license plates - next thing you know my wife traded in her Honda Civic for a Charger!

The key fobs are pretty much identical - anyone know if we can "cross"train the remotes so that one remote will work on either car? Sure would make life easier.

Re: Remote comparability

Talk to your dealer. My guess would be no.

Re: Remote comparability

I do not believe you can do that...once a remote is coded for a vehicle, that coding can never be changed. And having the same remote work for both vehicles could get "interesting" (if not dangerous if there was a remote start capability...), not to mention that you could unlock both cars in your driveway at the same time, drive away in one and leave the other wide open for "nice folks" to play in...
