    Remote programming

    planning on buying a key remote since i never got one with my jeep , but am wondering if anyone here knows how to program it tried searching for instructions to do it with no luck . the ones i seen on ebay don't come with instructions , like the other ones for different vehicles do . bought some before for other vehicles that came with instructions , but none are available for Jeeps .

    I was under the impression that they were not programmable. If you figure it out, please post back here.

    alright , just tried searching again and came accross these instructions for remote programming , i hope this helps the rest of you who were trying to find answers to the same question

    Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed into the receiver at any given time.

    All transmitters to be used on a vehicle must be programmed during this procedure.

    (1) Open the driver’s door and leave it open during the programming process.

    (2) Move the mechanical door lock lever on the driver’s door to the LOCK position.

    (3) Insert the ignition key and turn it to the RUN position. (Do not start the vehicle.)

    (4) After turning the ignition key to the Run position aim the transmitter at the receiver and press the LOCK (right) button for 5 seconds. Once the receiver accepts the programming the door will unlock.

    (5) If additional transmitters are to be used on the vehicle each must be programmed during the programming sequence. (Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed to a vehicle) To program additional transmitters: Return the mechanical door lock lever on the driver’s door to the LOCK position and aim the next transmitter at the receiver and press the LOCK (right) button for 5 seconds. Again when the receiver accepts the programming the door will unlock. Repeat step 5 until all transmitters have been programmed.

    (6) When all transmitters have been programmed to the receiver, the ignition must be turned off and back on within 20 seconds after programming the last transmitter. When this is done, only the transmitters that were programmed to the vehicle during this procedure will operate the locks.

    i'm not even sure now that you mentioned it . my buddy has the exact same jeep and he uses a remote on his , and my other buddy has a 96 grand cherokee as well , he doesn't use his remote at all , so he ended up giving me his , but it worked on his car before i tried to program it into mines , after i tried programming it to mines and it didn't work , i tried it again on my buddies one which the remote used to work on , and now it doesn't . so i know it's not linked to his anymore , i just can't get it to connect to mines . the dome the intstructions are talking about is the little black dome on the dashboard about a foot away from the anti theft light right ??? i'm assuming so .
