    Maybe Iím an idiot...

    So I bought my 2014 Grand Cherokee from a seedy salesman at what I have come to consider a shady dealer. When I told them to provide me with 2 fully functional RKE fobs and that I wanted to buy 2 extras (cause you can never have enough spare keys), they complied and had me pay like $230 for the 2 extra fobs. I recently realized 1 of the fobs will do everything EXCEPT start the vehicle, so took it to dealer to reprogram/fix. Salesman said there is a 3 fob limit to be able to start this model, which he swears he told me...obviously I wouldnít have dropped an extra $115 for fun after making such an expensive purchase. I canít find any info online about limits to fobs for the 2014 Grand Cherokees. Does anyone know if 3 really is the limit or if I got screwed by this dealer yet again??

    IDK, maybe you're SOL on the RKE FOB.... IMO, I'd tell that SOB to pay up ASAP.... Have you tried to GTS?

    The JK has a limit of 10 unique chip identities tied to the vehicle, but you can clone a code indefinitely, so I'm pretty sure that's bullshit.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
