Unfortunately this is rather unpredictable. for the low cost of a battery, i would try that. if the key still is unreliable, then you know what your next step is... good luck!

I replaced the battery on a 2001 Jeep grand Cherokee and security is on so it wont start how do I reset computer to get it to start


Directly from the owners manual...
1.- Enter your car wth your ignition key and your theft remote, and press the Lock button on your remote five times in 10 seconds.
2.- Insert your key into the Jeep's ignition cylinder, and then turn the key to the "Run" position. Wait for the car's automatic chiming sound to stop before proceeding.
3.- Press and hold the Unlock button on your remote for around five seconds, and then press and hold the Panic button at the same time.
4.- Hold both buttons together for one second and then release. Wait for the car's chimes to sound again and then press and release the Lock and Unlock buttons on your remote.
5.- Press and release just the Unlock button on the remote next and wait for a chime again to indicate successful programming. You can then remove your ignition key to complete the resetting process.

Hope this helps; keep us updated.

I changed battery and now it dosnt work


You lost your program of the key module follow these instructions.

To Program a Remote for a VW
Put your good key in the ignition and turn to "ON", do not start the engine. Make sure all the remotes you want to use are present because they have to be programmed at the same time.
- Close the door and insert key #2 into the driver's side lock. Lock the door.
-Within 5 seconds of locking the door, press unlock 2 times on the new remote, key #2.
-(if this is remote #3, press unlock 3 times. if this is remote #4, press unlock 4 times).
-If there's a chirp or beep do not press it again. This means that the car has recognized the new keyless entry remote.
- Repeat with other remote or unlock the car and turn off - done.

Key remote wont work even with new batteries


The remote likely needs to be reprogramed. If you have both remotes you will need to take these to the dealer and have them reprogramed.

Lights quit flashing when Key Remote Locks or Unlocks car


The body controller for some reason has lost it's setting most likely. The dealer can reset with their "Star Scan" diagnostic tool. Many settings such as flash on lock or horn sound on lock can be turned on or off.
