Sent from my iPad using my fingers
Maybe also just buying a whole new set from ebay etc. locks, ignition and keys

For my wife's WJ, the memory buttons on the door as well as the different fobs control unlocking, both side mirror positions, driver's side seat position, and radio presets for each driver.

Ignition could not be saved? WTF? The ignition cylinder is easy as pie to set to any key you could care to imagine. Just 8 pins to fuss with, not hard to do (just make sure you have plenty of light).

On the fobs, color doesn't matter. The colors are simply to tell them apart for the memory seats and mirrors (I think).

To add a new transponder key, you need 2 working keys. To add a fob, you need 1 key and 1 fob (I think).

Well could it also be the key itself. The reason I ask is because the new key for the outside of the door is like a normal house key and not the transponder key like the ignition is.
You don't need a transponder key for the alarm. I recently had to rewire the door because my key would not turn off the alarm. There is a security alarm key switch on the back of the lock cylinder that you may have to replace. Check the wiring first.

Someone had broken the windows out and tried to steal the WJ (wasn't mine at this time). The ignition cylinder had been torn apart for the fools trying to hot wire it and break it to get it started.

My only way to unlock my doors at all is the flat house type keys that aren't chip. Then the standard jeep key for the ignition. I did try to trick where you unlock it and wait to make sure the lights on the inside came on and this worked and my alarm hasn't gone off all day.

Spent part of the day at the junkyard. Found a couple of Varilok equipped WJs and contemplated pulling the axles.

Ended up pulling out a cd changer cubby w/lid to replace the standard half height cubby. Also scored a 4 disk cd changer for my SRT4.

I remember reading somewhere that Grand Cherokees are one of the harder vehicles to steal.

Hit the wreckers yesterday and nothing new in the way of WJ's. Did find a 5.9, so grabbed the hood louvres. Not sure if I'll use or not, but have in case I do. One of the drip trays needs to be repaired, but easy enough to do. Louvres themselves are perfect shape.

Finished painting my surrogate axle assembly with Eastwood's chassis black over the rust encapsulator. Differential carriage removed. Time to remove the [stubborn] pinion nut...master rebuild kit in the wings...
