2010 Grand Cherokee key problems
 
Hello
New member. Continuing Key Fob problems, very intermittent. Was wondering about fixes.
Thanks

I would bet it is the soldering job on the battery holder that is the cause. If you split apart the key fob, you can take the battery out and re-solder the 3 prongs...

That is, of course, if you have tried putting in a new battery and that didn't solve your issues.

I cannot believe Jeep made such a poor design for the key fob. I have had mine apart multiple times, have soldered it 2 or 3 times, even soldered on a new tab to make a better connection with the battery and it still shoots blanks intermittenly.

Pisses me off whenever I walk up to it and someone says, "hey, nice ride!" and I am standing there trying to get in the damn thing!!

The 2010 fobik is a mercedes design.

I dont have a 2010 style key but this is like a 2006 style key to show the points to solder, the battery retainer there, there are 3 soldered points of contact, a pin on the left and right side and the flat portion against the chip... hit all those points with a solder gun, you may not even need to add solder, just a matter of reheating a solder joint that may be cracked to repair a poor connection.

That looks nothing like the 2010 remote.

No really??? Maybe that's why he said that picture was a 2006 FOB. Since you've had yours apart multiple times maybe you should take a picture of yours to show the OP where to solder.

On a side note that "thank you" wasn't intentional. I really wish someone would move that "thanks" button since it gets hit unintentionally sometimes when I'm on here with my iPad.

Maybe you should chill out - I was just making the comment that the 2010 is different.

That's fine, if I could I would send your "thank you" back to you and let you stick it someplace.

And he was just making the comment that the poster of the picture (yours truly) already made that comment WITH the picture.

Sorry, I didn't read that from your "picture".

I just don't appreciate someone coming on here telling me what I "should" do. I was just letting the OP know that the insides of the 2010 are different than the one you posted. I will be more than happy to take pics of what I did to mine.

I think your out of your element if you think the forum is just a picture book ;)
