HI My keyless remote met with an unpleseant demise during an incident with a forklift. I picked up a used one but I now need to program it to work with my 2001 XJ.

Does any one have the instructions for this?

Thanks Chris

Most keyless systems have to be programed from the stealership, even if you purchase the clicker online. This is true for my '00 XJ, and my stealership no longer has the coding system loaded up on their computers anymore to do it.

Just did a search online, and if your dealership still supports your model Jeep they will recode the remote, with varying degrees of cost (depends on the area). You may find that it might be cheaper to disable the factory system you have altogether and get a Cobra or some other remote system, that is, if the total cost goes over $150 or so. I didn't find anything on programming it yourself, but I do remember there's a way to do it, which involves tapping the remote buttons in a certain order while turning your vehicle on and off. But if I remember correctly, this can ONLY be done if no other code has been entered into the remote. If it came from another vehicle then you're stuck with the dealer.
