How to Replace My Jeep Liberty Key & Remote

by Susanne Koenig

It's particularly frustrating when you lose your keys and fob, but replacing them for your Jeep Liberty doesn't need to be difficult. It will take a call to a locksmith or a dealership and won't be cheap, but you will be sure to get right key that is programmed to turn on your car and yours alone. Both the key and the fob are known as a transponders, meaning they both have a chip installed that emits a particular frequency that causes your car's ignition to turn over or the doors to open. They must be programmed by a dealer or locksmith, and can be had within a few hours.

1

Call the Jeep dealership. Tell the parts technician your make and model and ask if they can cut and program the key within a few hours. Be sure to tell them that you will also need a key fob programmed as well.

2

Ask the technician for a price. If you are not satisfied with the amount, then call a reputable locksmith and obtain an additional quote.

3

Ask the locksmith if the quote includes on-site delivery. Generally, it does. This is particularly handy if you are unable to travel due to your missing keys. Be sure he is authorized to program keys for Jeep.

4

Order the key and key fob for the best available price. Be sure to test them before you drive off.
