SOURCE: alarm system has stopped working.

please explain what year a X registration vehicle is ,as i have no idea ,last one i remember was a T 1978 .Now i think that this alarm fob might need re-programming into the vehicle where you swing on the aerial whilst holding the key fob in teeth and pressing the brake and the FM button on the radio at the same time ,When my all data books arrive next week i might be able to help but yes i have had this problem before and yes we do have these vehicles here in spain but mainly diesels ,now last time it happened when a customer changed the batterys i held the button down on the fob then turned the ignition on and it all sort of bleeped and started working ,but perhaps an american person with more experiance than myself might know how to do it correctly ,Now if you ask me about a humber hawk or a morris minor??

SOURCE: I can't start my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with

Hi Hal,

Did you ever get this resolved? Looks like you didn't get any feedback here! I'm having the same issue sporadically. I turn the key and nothing. Usually if I keep trying it will eventually start cranking and start. Usually within 10 - 15 tries. happened last night. After it started, I got the "Service Security Key" message. I looked in the manual and it does say what that means. Don't know if it is programming (probably not because the fob works 97% of teh time) or maybe just a dying battery. If you can share anything you might have founf out I'd appreciate it! thanks!

The key fob battery, the theft module , must be causing the problem.The car not getting open with key, may be key needs reprogramming.-------- There is a battery in a key fob, many a times battery gets weak or dead, causing the problem.But if battery in key fob is already replaced, then theft alarm needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer.The theft system is not letting the car to start.----------- Both key fob and theft module needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer.Its done by a reprogramming scanner.Not a error code scanned, but a reprogramming tool scanner.----------- That will only pin point the problem,if the theft module is got faulty or just needs reprogramming.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Warning message: ''remote control battery low''


hi, this message is warning you that the battery in the key fob is going flat if this battery goes totally flat you wont be able to start your car as its this signal from the key fob that turns the imobiliser off so with out this fob your car wont start so its best you get the battery changed sooner rather than later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
