Key fob battery??

I know there is a battery in this key fob but the question is what if it dies? Will the car start? I dont have a real key for my ignition.

The battery's only used for the keyless entry and remote start. The actual "electronic key" is powered by magic (radio waves from the ignition's antenna).

As long as the Jeep itself has a good battery, you're set to go.
