Keyless remote 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo programing


Instructions
  1. Programming the First Transmitter
    • 1

      Unlock all of the Jeepicon1.png Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.

    • 2

      Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.

    • Sponsored Links

    • 3

      Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the caricon1.png ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.

    • 4

      When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.

    • 5

      Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!

Ignition switch.


This is the method for removing the lock and key switch ,not the electrical portion.
remove the screws from the bottom of the shroud. Remove the lower shroud so you can get a good clear view of the ignition lock. There is a small silver pin (retainer) that is holding the lock in along the bottom of the ignition housing.While applying pressure to the pin with an icepick or similiar tool turn the key clockwise until you feel the pin drop into the lock. At this point you can remove the lock cylinder with a little help of a flatbade screwdriver.
