Reprogramming the Remote Keyless Entry Fob

Part #:

When you press the button on the keyless entry fob, the parking lights flash, horn beeps pitefully at you, head lights come on and the drivers door opens. Then you have to press it again to get the other doors to open, okay sometimes you need to press it more than once more to get them to work. At least Jeep gave us the options of reprogramming some of these options out. Headlights unfortunately I haven't found out how to turn off yet.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
