How to Program a Keyless Entry for a Jeep

by Matthew Fortuna

With any Jeep automobile manufactured since the late 1990s, a keyless entry remote has come standard. These remotes allow for easy access to the car, locking and unlocking features, trunk opening, panic alarms and often a start for the car. These remotes can be programmed for any Jeep at home and without any past knowledge.

Enter your Jeep and make sure all of the doors and the trunk are closed.

Put your key in the Jeep's ignition and keep the key in the off position.

Open the driver's door on the automobile and leave the door open.

Move the switch on the door to the lock position while the door is open.

Switch the key in the ignition two clicks to the right to the "On" position.

Press the lock button on your keyless remote for your Jeep and hold the button for 5 seconds. Release the button and remove the key from the ignition to complete the programming.
