Question about 2008 Jeep Cherokee Grand

1 Answer

When I got out of my cherokee the doors locked and the keys were in the ignition and the car was running. This was ok because I was home and I had an extra key fob in the house. But the reomote would not unlock the doors or the rear window. I didn't have a spare key to manual unlock the doors. This has never happen before. I had to pay someone to get the doors unlock. After that I shut the doors with the key in the ignition and this time the key fob worked. Opened and unlocked doors while the truck was running.

Hi. I have 2002 grang cherokee 2,7 T diesel. when I use my remote key all is open but no driver door.but alarm is still armed , when I open the doors alarm sounds exept driver doors . When i turn the...


try this first, make sure all doors are locked. Insert door key in drivers side door lock and turn key left for 3-5 seconds then turn to the right with a little pressure. open door. Insert key in ignition and turn to on ONLY! wait at least 30 seconds, then turn key to start allow to idle for a few minutes. If problem persists, the remote is not functioning properly. contact a locksmith for reprogramming or replacement. A lock shop will be cheaper than the dealer! Hope this helps you!

      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.

      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!

Lost ignition key


OK, NOW WHAT?? If you don't have one you are going to have to replace the lock cylinder for the ignition and if that is the same key as the doors and hatch you will have to replace them also and have the cylinders all key matched to the same key..

I lost my keys and there are two different keys to operate my jeep. One opens the door, and the other ones starts the car. Can I get a new set?


Sounds like somewhere along the life of your jeep someone changed the ignition cylinder, resulting in your having two separate keys. You will have to replace the ignition cylinder and all or maybe just the one driver's side door lock cylinder. There's really no way one key will work with both your existing ignition and door locks. Another suggestion is that you can get a complete matching set of locks and keys from someone who's parting out their Grand Cherokee, so you would then have only one key for all the locks.

Go inside the vehicle,dont put key in ignition, leave driver's door open, press the auto lock button on the driver's door, now close door while you are inside and watch on the dash the alarm enable itself, once it stops flashing open the door, this will set off the alarm, lights flashing horn blowing. Now take the key and put it in the drivers door and turn the key to stop the alarm. Now start you vehicle. If you want you can take the glove box apart to get to the vehicle security module to remove it. Dont unplug it unless the vehicle is running (must be running due to back up on computer) unplug the module and you will never have another problem with the security again and it does not effect your powerlocks.
