Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

The range of both of my remote unlock transmitters has decrease.

I bought the 2004 Grand Cherokee several months ago. Both of the remote unlock transmitters I received were dead. I put new batteries in both of them. Now, both of them have a very short range. I have to be right in front of the Jeep for them to unlock it. I bought some more new batteries, but the same thing is happening. I have performed the re-programming procedure recommended by my owners manual, but I still have the problem.

Any ideas????

I have seen some autozone parts stores with keyless remote displays. These were used to see if your keyless was transmitting so they could sell batteries for them. You could try to use their display and see how much range you are getting. I have never taken apart the unit in the car, but if it does not have an antenna it must use the body as an antenna. You might want to try a Salvage yard to see where the mating part is and what the wires attach to.

How do I disarm my 2011 jeep grand cherokee alarm? It keeps going off randomly and my remote doesn't shut it off


GOT OPTION "ENTER AND GO"???????????????
did you use both FOBS. car came with 2, try using both , one at a time and not both near car as SAME time. ever.

mines turned off for ever,
i never armed it.
so page what.
wow 6 owners manuals, 4 for Uconnect, wow. pain.
page 22. read that?
sure.
is this not clear ,quoted
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you
remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE
transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed
(after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit,
the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm. You may also accidentally sound the
Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver's door
with the key and then opening the door

good luck deciphering this page, wow.!
page 23 is NO ENTER AND GO', OPTION.
Either press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter,
pull on the front driver or passenger door handle (refer to
"Keyless Enter-N-Go" in "Things To Know Before Starting
Your Vehicle" for further information) with a valid
key fob in range, or press the Keyless Enter-N-Go Start/
Stop button (requires at least one valid Key Fob in the
vehicle), or insert a valid Key Fob into the ignition switch
(if the Start/Stop button is removed) and rotate it to the
ON/RUN position.

END QUOTES FROM YOUR GUIDE.
if all this fails get jeep to fix it. (the magic is broken so...)
or ask them to explain, page 23 , in non GREEK..

Got a 2003 mercury grand marquis which i bought and didnt come with a remote for the door locks. i have an extra remote from my 2003 ford expedition and need to know how to program it, any suggestions?


usually the truck and car fobs work on different signals. you can get inexpensive fobs on ebay, the car fob will have four buttons with a trunk release button.
once you have the correct fob, its pretty easy.
  • Just remember that you must also re-program your currently working remotes at this time also as if they are new since prior remotes are erased.
  • Max of 4 transmitters can be programmed.
Procedure:
  • Keep the driver's door open.
  • Electronically unlock the doors (Switch on door or working transmitter)
  • 2000-2006: Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN/ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. If the module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
  • Within 20 seconds, press any button on an transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each transmitter has been programmed. Repeat this step for each transmitter.
  • NOTE: If the door locks do not respond for any transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again.
  • To exit the programming mode:
    • Turn ignition to the OFF position.
    • Let the 20 seconds expire.
    • The maximum number of transmitters have been programmed.

Having issues getting the garage door opener to work after expecting the code


Are you having problems while using the remote transmitter, but not the local control? Try changing the battery in the remote unit. If the battery is new, the transmitter may be drifting it's output frequency somewhat causing poor execution. Do you have two transmitters and one works better than the other? Either have the poor transmitter checked by the dealer or buy a new transmitter--whichever is cheaper. Hope this helps!

The range of my remote door opener has decreased on my 2004 jeep grand cherokee; I have replaced the bateries and no improvement. Is there an adjustment on the car that may effect this.


the output of the transmitter needs to be checked.it is a rf type .
if not,the front end of the remote module is no good.
it is part of a module that controls alot of other functions.

Keyless remote


try this I can get you more info if needed have a good day DB
Notes SYNCHRONIZATION (ROLLING CODE) BUTTON TRANSMITTERS
The transmitter code will go out of synchronization if the button is pressed more than 255 times outside the range of the receiver which is inside the Door Module. In other words the transmitter will not work. To synchronize the code of the particular transmitter with the receiver, press and hold both lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds . Release the buttons and wait until the doors unlock indicating that the code has been synchronized. This may require waiting for as long as 6 minutes .

Programming keyless remote for Neon 2004


There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.

I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.


CUSTOMER PROGRAMMING For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.
  1. Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
  2. Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
  3. Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
  4. A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
  5. Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
  6. After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.
