First off i can not understand the questions.
new car (non dealer private), check.
how many keys did you get? (seems one)
does car start and run with this one key.?
did you first read the operators guide its free, see link below. end.
Ok i think now that you mean , you got a key with no buttons
A full real fob key is RKE, key remote entry key. (missing)
yes your car came with own new and its lost.
there is also a key that is SKIM enabled but no buttons.
this is called. a transponder only key, (has skim chip under plastic) this is a $13 key. (best is to have 2 of these, working at all times) so you can make others.

i edited your post from KEEP to KEY. this helped me...
now my guess, have one key, and it works (to start car and drive )
and you want to know if a real fob works.
sure, but its lost, and you jeep is programmed
for that key, and there is no way to ask it, (dealer only if at all)

in a real dealer, they erase all other known keys first
the take your basket of keys (3+ is best) and program them to work. (take in 2 no fob keys, and 1 real RKE new)
each is a unique key, and are LEARNED to the system
the key is not programmed, it is a complex system. RTM.


you are learning the key to the SKIM module (in car)
the procedures are different on this car in Europe, Bosch system there. Chapter 8E (& 8Q) in the SM book.
the owners manual (USA only) is here
http://owners.mopar.ca/en/

page 16 above tells you , takes 2 to make 3 to 8 keys.
usa cars. only.
now you have the lost manual , operators.
"Customer Key Programming
If you have two valid Sentry Keys , you can program
new Sentry Keys to the system by performing the
following procedure:"


the key facts are (with pun)"
do you want that lost key to work in you car, (some bad guy)
if not , you need to get the cars SKIM system to erase all known keys. this is S.O.P. in pro shops... (they at least ask you)

Yours has a keyless entry program in the system for FOB's. There may be a way to do it. I have a scanner and program them in with it. I do it for free, when I am asked out right., not threw the boss. Takes about five minutes.

If it is a factory keyless system than you do need it done by the dealer, but if it is an after market system then reply back with manufacture and model.

It sounds like your FOB needs to be reprogrammed, email me at bigt_wlm@juno.com around thursday and I will try to email you the programming instructions for that, If I am not able to you will need to call a locksmith with a T-Code or MVP Pro key programmer or DODge to programm your remote to your ECU

    Remote keyless entry


    I assume you are talking about the key fob. First, pry it open and change the battery. Watch which way the + goes.
    If your key fob works, and the battery did not fix it, try reprogramming following the instrcutions in the owner manual. May need both fobs present at the same time.
    Note; This is different than programming the anti-theft key.
