The key should have a button that says 2x with a circular arrow.if it foes not have that button then its an aftermarket key. Unless you have 2 fobik keys you will need to have a proper one programmed at the stealyourhardearnedmoneyship. Maybe a locksmith can help.

The proper key should look like this.

I think all 2008 Limited had remote start as standard.

You should have that key fob
try hitting the x2 button twice & wait a minute

Thanks to all of you. I picked it up last night. He handed me the keys and I remote started it. The look on his face was priceless! He'd owned it for 2.5 years and had no idea what that button was for and had never tried it.

Thanks! I have so far. It's the perfect road trip Jeep for me, the wife, two kids and our ginormous dog.

To follow up this convo, I have an 07 CRD Overland that has the original build sheet with it listing "remote start system". The ONLY key that came with the truck does NOT have the five button, just a four button remote/key. I've read extensively on here about needing two keys in order to program a third. Since the build list has "remote Start system" on it, should i just go ahead and buy a key blank with remote start like this one?

You could buy that key, yes; But you'd still need to go to the stealership where they will happily lighten your wallet to program it for you.

So I can get it cut anywhere, but I would have to have them or a locksmith program it? Roughly how much?

It varies, but the consensus seems to be between $60-80.

Does anyone know if the newer switchblade type keys will work on an 07 WK?

If its on the build sheet that option had to have come as one of your Commander's accessories.
