Key fob locking me out

3 times in the 2 years I have owned my Jeep Grand Cherokee the doors have locked themselves while the key fob was in my purse in the car. When the keys are left in the car the car usually does what its are designed to do, honk and unlock. Anyone else having this issue?

I have similar issues with my KL. Fob is sometimes not proper detected when placed in jacket behind drivers seat. If you hit the lock-button while closing the door, doors are locked withfob inside.

Once or twice my 2016 Trailhawk gave error that FOB not detected while I was in the car with the FOB. I believe the heavy electronics laden car just glitches from time to time, as our Cherokees are literally a computer on truck chassis

Re: Key fob locking me out

I have had 1 or 2 episodes of "keyfob not detected" in my Grand Cherokee. Has been OK since the FOB battery was replaced. Other forums have mentioned that the FOB is dicey as soon as the battery starts to go low.

There is also a TSB for a possible radio hub issue in the GC:

My 2014 did this to my wife all of the time, especially when remote started. My 2015 has not done it yet, but we haven't been as trusting with it so I'm not sure if it would or not.
