I'm thinking most of you know this but just in case ....

The key fob for the 2013s can still remote unlock the flipper glass. The only thing missing is the contact for the button. I picked up a 2011 fob off of eBay. Was hoping to just use the rubber buttons from the eBay fob but it was pretty cheap and crappy looking so I cut a contact out of the eBay fob and glued it to my OEM fob. I now have the remote flipper glass feature that was removed in ... 2012 I believe.

Do you see the photo in my original post? The middle photo on the right (Back of eBay fob). I cut one of those silver contacts out of the ebay fob and glued it to the rubber on the OEM fob. See middle photo on the left (Back of OEM fob w/contact from eBay fob). Make sense?

Hold the phone.....so you say any 2013 model can be opened with this Mod? Does it have to have the power rear glass or anything?
It should work on any 2012 or 2013. I don't know why only mine would have this. You can easily confirm though. Take apart your key fob (pretty easy). It should look like the top left picture in my original post (OEM Guts). See the metal circles (contacts)? The flipper glass is the bottom left one. Use one of the other buttons on the OEM rubber piece to test the flipper glass to confirm it works. Two clicks should unlock the flipper glass.


This is the one I got but a word of caution....It's cheap junk. It looks and feeling like crap. That's why I decided to only use the contact from it.

Also, I tested the bottom right button on the OEM fob but all it did was flash the lights. Not sure if that does anything.

I can confirm that it does not work on the 2014's :D
That is funny!!!!

Guys,
How do you operate the panic alarm? Is it a press and hold or several presses to activate. This button is missing of the Aussie fobik however the internals are all there (eg flipper glass works with the above test).

Press once and it turns on. Press again to turn it off.

Did this yesterday. Works great on my 2013 GC. And yes, the eBay fob is crappy for $18.
Was gonna put the contacts in for the remainder blank buttons on the OEM fob. What are the other buttons that I do not have on my fob?

Not sure which fob you have. Here's mine: Panic, lock and unlock, remote tail gate and remote start. Bottom left is the remote flipper. Bottom right just flashes the lights on mine. I think that's the Dingo's remote third seat fold down button. Don't quote me on that though.

This one looks like it's just a hollow case. The one Debauch purchased had the contacts in it that were removed and put in his existing fob.
I may be wrong but check this item close before you purchase it.
That should be the correct one. The contacts I cut out are on the back of the rubber buttons from the ebay fob.
Here's the one I got...it's cheaper :thumbsup:

Has anyone replaced/upgraded their lift glass struts to a more heavy duty one? I would love for the lift glass to pop open when I hit the button like my 05 did. If I could just figure out how many pounds of pressure the stock one is, I could but an aftermarket one with more.
