Security System Disable
I have an 08 Jeep Laredo. I also have the: unlock twice before the car will turn over "security system." Well the key battery is dying and I am having a heck of a time managing to be able to unlock twice before starting up. So...
1. Can I just replace the battery in the key?
2. How can I disable this feature all together?

I have taken it to the jeep dealership I bought it from, they have never heard of this security feature and have no idea how to fix it... btw.

Re: Security System Disable
I have found other websites if you goggle search this problem.
Summary is: You can replace the battery or if battery is good sometimes the battery clip/hold down is broken and if you place papper inside as a spacer to hold the battery in position it will work again.
Good luck!
I have tried to dissable my system by grounding the purpple/yellow wire in the driver side kick plate but that did not work..I suspect this only over rides doors locked. I have not been able to locate the security system module under the dash to remove it as my car has a panel that reports all light and some fluid problems and I suspect this is all one.
The dealers seem to be at a loss with this problem.
Buy a FORD!
