2018 Jeep Wrangler Key Fob & Keyless Entry Instructions
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has a new key fob and based on how your Jeep is equipped it comes with a lot of cool features. The new Jeep has a keyless entry system with a START/STOP button ignition. The key fob allows you to lock or unlock your Wrangler from as far away as 66 feet as well as open the swing gate. If your key fob battery dies just push the nose end of the fob against the START/STOP button and push it to operate the switch.
As with most keyless entry systems, when unlocking your 2018 Jeep Wrangler, the inside will light up and your signal lights will flash twice. When locking, the signals will flash and the horn will chirp. If you lose your key fob, you have to visit an authorized dealership to have a blank key fob programmed to your specific vehicle. No more Home Depot for your keys!
If your new 2018 Jeep Wrangler is equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go passive entry, you can unlock and lock your doors without taking the key fob out of your pocket. When Passive Entry Unlock is engaged, your low beam headlights, license plate lamp and position lamps will illuminate for 30, 60 or 90 seconds as desired. To unlock the driver’s door, just grab the handle and make sure the key fob is within 5 feet. To lock the vehicle just push the passive entry lock button on the door handle and make sure the key fob is within 5 feet.
