Programming new key fob for 1996 Grand Cherokee

Can someone tell me how to program a new key fob into my 1996 Grand Cherokee. I bought one on Ebay and need to know how to make it work.

You cannot. The process is actually programming the Jeep to recognize the RKE fob, rather than the other way around. You'll have to take it to your friendly neighborhood Jeep dealer (or someone with a DRB scantool) to have the Jeep programmed. While you are there, they can also program how your doors unlock, whether or not they automatically lock, horn honk when you set the alarm or not, headlights on with wiper, and a few other features.

PROGRAM INSTRUCTIONS JEEP 2 BUTTON REMOTES



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.

Move to Step 5 If you have more than one transmitter you are going to use with this vehicle. Move to Step 6 If only one Jeep remote is used.

(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.
