Keyless entry not working
This one is for my wifes Jeep, the 05 WK. The keyless entry remote does not work anymore. We have replaced the battery and still nothing. I tried multiple batteries, so I know I didn't have a bad one.
Eventually, I opened the remote up, and found that the little metal "clip" that holds the battery down, and provides the contacts for the battery had come loose from the circuit board. I soldered it back, and it worked for a week or two.
Now we are back to square one. I guess the thing maybe came loose again, but I would rather just replace the key. Its not a big issue having to manually unlock the door, except for the alarm. Im assuming this is normal, but if we unlock the door with the key, the horn starts going off when you open the door. If we could just disable this I would be happy for a little while.
Any recommendations on how to fix this, or what are the options on getting a new key/remote?
