Key FOB with Five Buttons + 2??
 
What are the 2 blank buttons for on the key fob? If they are programmable what do you program them to and how?

There used to be a flipper glass unlock button, remote start, panic (red), lock/unlock and auto tailgate.

It's the same remote used on most Chrysler vehicles, so some use all of the buttons and others don't. The minivans use the bottom buttons for the sliding doors.

Ahh thanks for the picture. Anyone know if you can program the bottom two blank ones for the 2012 WK2?

it's already programed, you just need a little button insert under the remote cover to open the flipper glass.

Has anyone installed the remote start??

I'm thinking of buying one off eBay and getting it installed, just wondering if there are any known issues with it?

Supposedly, the reason it was removed, people were inadvertantly opening the glass which would prevent the tailgate and auto start from working. So in chrysler's infinite wisdom, they decided to protect us from our own stupidity and delete the feature.

the one feature i wish the 2012 had was holding down the unlock and windows roll down - love the feature in my BMW/Audi and even my company car 2010 nissan altima had that.

i guess Jeep thinks we're too stupid to have this since it was available on 2011 iirc?

Nope this was removed from the 2012. I too had it in my Nissan Titan and loved it...
