Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The drivers side door won't open, either with the key fob or by manually placing the key into the lock and turning it. I've replaced the battery in the key, and after reading a little online, I can say upon looking inside the key, I do not see any damage to the battery holder, chip board, etc. Lets say the battery was dead or the chip was broken, are you telling me I cant open the door manually? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!

Some cars, not sure about this model have dead locks so no even the key wouldnt open it.
its like detaching the lock mechanisim from the lock, so therefore the key is useless.

there should be some type of override but I have to be honest I am not familiar with this fault on this car, might be worth phoning the dealer see what info you can get out of them for free.

Hope that helps, if not try the forum for jeeps just go to google type in jeep forum and you should find it, them guys know much more than me about this fault no doubt.

hope that helps
Regards
Dan

Driver side door lock jammed on 2004 jeep grand cherokee


the key dont work or just the fob?????????????
did you try both fobs?
car came with 2 fobs try both. ?
if both fobs fail, bad solenoid, if metal key works.

if metal dont work, the lock is frozen with ICE, got ICE?(hair dryer fixes it)
no ice ?,then lube the lock with graphite,lube. if key fails.
if key dont fail and you get 12v to solenoid, then the solenoid is bad
I just replaced one that had 1/2 power (the guts inside sol were bad)
$100 part. too.

    • 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!

Replace the battery in th key fob to allow you to deactivate the alarm system. Use a small thin edged screw driver to pop open the cover on the fob to replace the battery.

Remote keys wont open vehicle


You can try calling a locksmith and see if they can get in. Locksmiths can use a tool to open the door by catching the rod inside the door frame. The last time I used a lock smith to open a door, it ran about $35.

I suspect once the battery issue has been resolved, you will need to reprogram the key fobs or figure out how to disable the alarm.
