Wj Key fob help

So awhile back, my original key fob stopped working. I replaced the battery's and still nothing. I bought a new one and went to get it programmed today and it could not be programmed. Did I just get a dud key fob or could it be something else? It's a 2000 WJ.

I bought a FOB of amazon and it would not work the dealer could not program it.
I ending buying one from the dealer expensive but it works.
Now I did buy some keys from amazon and the dealer cut them for like 30$ and programed them and they worked just fine.

So yes i think you could have a bad FOB they seem to be picky on jeeps.

The vendor was Discount Keyless for both items they refunded me for the FOB just took a awhile, but like I said the keys work fine got 3 now.

2000 WJ 4.0 main daily driver and sons car at times.
1999 4.7 my kind of cheap now project WJ that is fixed was bad ECM no longer driving me crazy lol.

Yes, you got a dud....I got a dud one too (off Ebay.... seller then sent good one).

The technician should've confirmed it was your fob...his scanner probably "couldn't see" your key fob being that it's bad or incompatible.

I also got a second / backup (being they usually program second/third fob for free!) from this guy(different seller-his programmed right up no problems)..and as you see here he's got a whole new batch of them:

Walmart has a do it yourself stand for transponder keys-never tried it. It must try and duplicate your keys transponder signal. But id personally just due a dealer key.

I had the same problem programming a key-fob for my wife's Chrysler T & C. The Jeep key-fob would not work, but the name-less one did. I think it needs to say Jeep on it.

Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep has many peanut shaped FOBS that look alike but a not compatible. To know if a FOB is compatible match the FCC ID of original FOB.

Yes , the mileage is stored in the PCM , it's only available through a DRB scan, it is irrelevant to 99% of jeepers
