Your vehicle should be under warranty, so take it in and let them fix it for free. If by some chance its not under warranty you could try a new battery, but most likely you need a new remote. I believe yours has the key as part of the remote so you will need to purchase the part, have them cut the key then probably pay them to program it to your car. If you have two keys you may not need to have them program it, some systems will learn a new key as long as you have one or two keys to put the system into sort of a learn mode.

I can't start my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with either key fob. Once I got a "Service Security Key" message. Another time I got the "Key not programmed - Damaged key" message. What...

Hi Hal,

Did you ever get this resolved? Looks like you didn't get any feedback here! I'm having the same issue sporadically. I turn the key and nothing. Usually if I keep trying it will eventually start cranking and start. Usually within 10 - 15 tries. happened last night. After it started, I got the "Service Security Key" message. I looked in the manual and it does say what that means. Don't know if it is programming (probably not because the fob works 97% of teh time) or maybe just a dying battery. If you can share anything you might have founf out I'd appreciate it! thanks!

Security system not responding to key fob signal input

When my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee will unlock the doors but not deactivate the security system it is always time to change the battery in the key fob. Don't order a new fob, just pry the fob open (carefully) and replace the battery. I buy mine from Batteries + and they cost like $.80 a piece + tax.
