Re: 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee remote not working
The control unit above the mirror usually can be removed entirely and then you just have a "normal" vehicle without the option (i did one not long ago and it's fine actually we removed it because the space was used for a radar detector, otherwise it probably could have stayed there). If you can find a complete unit including remotes in a salvage yard, it can easily be installed. The $160 is exactly what I was told as well!

Yes you can. On the back of the remote there will be a tiny screw remove that and pop it open and take the old battery out. Some remotes just pop open and dont have a screw. Most take a round flat battery and you can get them at any store.
No, you could have taken too long in changing the batteries and the remote has "lost it's code". Take it to a Chrysler/Jeep dealer and for $10-15 they can "reflash" it. I did it to one of my remotes on my '04 Dakota. Had to take the remote to the dealer....2-3 minutes later it was fixed. (It tells this in the owner's manual, but it's buried in there.) On my Dak, if I take more than 6 minutes to change the batteries..."dumb" remote. Page 261 in my manual. My glucomitor loses it's mind if I take too long changing batteries too. Ain't modern electronics grand? (I didn't ask if all your remotes don't work...that could be from a weak car battery or bad battery cables. That's part of the "security" system. Ask me how I found out....)
is the alarm after market ? and is so you need to replace it with another after market one .. now if the alarm is factory ?...you will need a remote control from the dealer and they will reprogram it for you
Alot of people have the same problem with the fan switch and blown bulbs. There really is no fix for this. Jeep really screwed up when designing the heater control assembly. The cheapest solution is to buy another unit off Ebay. Can always go to the dealer but be ready to PAY for there mistakes.
turn the back of the remote over and take the back piece off. On the backside, you will find that it has a circular battery on the back. Gently, with a small sharp object, take the battery out and go to a nearest wal mart or store that sales the battery. The battery should come in a individual pack or sold as two. Once you have peurchased the small battery, gently and carefuly reinstall the battery and carefully put the lid back on the backside of the remote. DO NOT TOUCH THE GREENPART OF THE CAR REMOTE WHEN INSTALLING THE BATTERY. This could damage the microchip inside the remote, causing the frequency to not be disrtibuted when unlocking on locking the car. If this does not work, go to your nearest jeep dealer and ask for it to be replaced. Give the service representative the vin(vehicle identification number)number when requesting this, beacause this tells the dealer everything about your particular jeep. If that doesnt work, then the reciver in the jeep that recives the signal needs to be repalced.
