I just bought a 2011 Wrangler too, and it only came with one key. I know that I can order a spare uncut key for about $20 online, and can get it cut at Lowes or wherever. From what I am reading though, I need 2 good keys to program the third one? Did you run into that? I don't have power locks so it is just a regular key.

Thanks,

Justin

lasik1 Good luck w/the project and try and post some pics. My '08 arrived on a transport with a blown engine, rotten top and 4 different sized tires- I learned a lot on this forum that helped with the rebuild.

Paulj777 Thanks for the replies. Will try to talk to someone at the dealership.

I paid 16K with transport. 14500 miles on it.

Need to replace:
Airbags
Driver side fender
Driver side door
Windshield
And repaint the whole thing

Luckily the engine is fine.

Good thinking.

Wranglin4Life That sucks! I would be interested in what you paid for it too.

Abnormal-JK Check with a reputable Locksmith shop... a friend of mine here is a locksmith and can make chipped keys from his mobile shop... maybe you can find one to come to the Jeep.

unusedusername At least on my '13, a non programmed key will open the doors from the keyholes on the door, but won't start the car.

Programming the key requires a 'pairing' process with the engine computer.

n00g7 Long story short, yes, you will have to take it to the dealership (sorry). Sign up for AAA? FWIW, a tow will probably run $60-100. Maybe you could call and sweet talk the dealer into picking it up if you purchase a mopar mod or two (or they could just want your future business).

Willybusmc This isn't really an answer to your question, but I'm very curious what you paid for that? Sorry to hear about the key troubles though

Sebastian F7 They should be able to get you a plain key. My buddy just went thru this with his VW Golf.

Urgent!! No Keys

Hello Everyone,

I purchased my first Jeep - a 2011 Unlimited Rubicon from an auction and received it today

It didn't come with a key and the driver side tire is flat. The car is at the body shop now. Had to get it off the trailer with a fork lift

So I called the dealership today for keys - and they said that I will have to bring the car at the dealership to program it. Is it true ??

I drive a BMW and lost the key a month ago - I just had to call the dealership, give my vin and they delivered it to me the next day.

Please let me know. Don't how will I take the car in this condition to the dealer.


Thanks in advance,
Paul j
