Check the key fob battery. Second take the key fob to your local parts store chain and have them check to see if it is transmitting a signal. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Remote on '99 Jeep Cherokee not working...

Normally you can get the alarm to shut off by puttin ght key in the ignition or in the door and turning. The remote will need programed with the vehicle. Should run about 50.00 or so for service department to do this. My wife has a '99 cherokee and it did the same thing. I know the remote is the problem.

SOURCE: hi,immobiliser problem?battery went flat,,managed to

Hi it sounds like you have done everything you can do, it now looks like your going to need to get the immobilizer reset, this can be done at most garages but its best if you shop around to see the best price you can get as its not cheap.

have you tried locking the door with the key and then opening it with the key then try the car see if it will work.

failing that its going to need the imob re-programming so that it accepts your key fob, it may just be that you need the fob replacing as the chip inside could have failed they will be able to test all this for you.

let me know if you need further assistance, not that theirs much more i can do without being their with the equipment to test the immobilizer, hopefully it will just be the fob that needs replacing.

you could just try one last thing when you get in the car and put the key in the ignition try holding the fob as close as you can to the ignition barrel as this is where it picks the signal up from so try holding it close to their and see if that then lets you start the car

failing that its going to be a trip to the garage.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do I get my alarm system to chirp instead of beep when it goes off or when I lock my doors with the remote entry key fob?


Check to see if your vehicle honks when you press the "lock" button on your key fob. Press the "lock" button multiple times in a row. Many devices won't beep unless you double-tap the button after locking. If the horn doesn't honk, but the lights flash, your chirp feature is probably disabled.

Use your keyless fob and ignition key to enable the audible chirp. The process varies considerably on different makes and models. You must usually consult your owner's manual, a dealership or the alarm manufacturer for the correct process.

Alarm wont set 2008 jeep commander


the car came with 2 RKE FOBs
are both dead.?
alway have 3 FOB if not you can not reprogram a new one. self.
can cost you $300 for more to tow your car to the dealer if the 1 fob dies. never run one fob. or bad happens.
put in a new battery in the FOB for door issues
the transponder part does not use the battery .
the transponder must be good, or the car would never run.
the jeep cuts fuel after 2 seconds if the transponder fails.

Nissan altima key fob broke when dropped


The alarm will sound if the alarm was set before you dropped the key fob. Just put the key in the ignition and start the car, the alarm should turn off.

Key fob wont re set on my ssan yan rexton


I recently changed the battery on my key fob for my ssanyong rexton. I then did the following for the key fob to make it work. 1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold both buttons on key fob until red light on fob stays on. Then let go of both buttons. Then pressed the alarm button then the panic button, somthing like that. To be fair the button sequence after the red light came on is a bit vague. The alarm was blaring so i was happy when it just stopped.

I bought a used 1993 jeep gc 4x4 5.2l alarm goes off but have to cut off with key unlock doors. also overhead console doesnt work what could be the problem


Only other way to turn off the factory security system, besides using the key in the door, is with the factory key fob. You can get a key fob and have it programmed to your jeep, by an alarm shop. As for the overhead console, could just be a fuse blown or an electrical short. No way to tell except by checking it out.

Key fob remote start issues


You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.
