Recently bought a 2008 Jeep Liberty, only came with one key, the remote on the key head, but not remote start, perhaps no alarm because when I open the door with the key manually no alarm sounds (after locking it with the remote). Purchased a transponder key online, the grey one WITHOUT the remote on the head...Can the dealer program this key with their DRB III tool to work? I then would have a spare key without remote option (which I don't need in a spare key) and save much $$ on the 2nd key.

what I just did (to have a startup key for winter warmups) was go to a local full service locksmith; they had a Strattec chipped key blank they cut and programmed using a code reader (after calling Chrysler to confirm the programming code for a secondary key); the key cost $25 and the programming cost $40...a bit high for a spare key, but alot LESS EXPENSIVE than a dealer FOB key; now I can unlock my vehicle with the FOB (which silences the alarm), start the car with the spare key, and relock the doors while the vehicle warms up for 3 to 5 minutes during the winter
