So if I am the only one who drives the WJ would I still need the two different colored fobs or would one color work?
"""If it comes and goes, I would say that you have a short in the wireing for the door. Check your wires, they get brittle and break in the insulation. """
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.
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.
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.
The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
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...
