Need a third key for 2015 Wrangler

I have seen some comments about the issue of getting extra keys made. Can someone point me to a key that they KNOW will work? I ordered on on ebay that said it can be programmed if I have 2 original factory keys. Then I get a response from the seller that it will need to be programmed by a dealer or locksmith (after I bought it). I'd just really be interested if anybody has history with a 2015 Wrangler, and a certain key duplicate. Thanks for any help you can provide. MKH

I've ordered from remotesremotes.com and while the key fob isn't very robust (battery cover pops off easily and spills all the guts out), the fob and key do work.

For $36 for two keys and fobs, it's kind of hard to beat. I just ordered some rubber fob guards that will hopefully hold the battery cover on and keep me from dumping the circuit board and battery on the ground. :o

From my 2016 owner's manual:

"Customer Key Programming
If you have two valid key fobs, you can program new key
fobs to the Sentry Key Immobilizer system by performing
the following procedure:
1. Cut the additional Key(s) to match the ignition and
lock cylinder key code.
2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition. Place the
ignition in the ON/RUN position for at least three
seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds. Then, place
the ignition in the LOCK position and remove the first
key.
3. Insert the second valid key into the ignition. Place the
ignition in the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds.
After 10 seconds, a chime will sound. In addition, the
Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Place the
ignition in the LOCK position and remove the second
key.
4. Insert a blank key into the ignition. Place the ignition in
the ON/RUN position within 60 seconds. After 10
seconds, a single chime will sound. In addition, the
Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that
programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light
will turn on again for three seconds and then turn off.
The new key is programmed. The key fob will also be
programmed during this procedure.
Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys. If you
do not have a programmed key.

This worked for me. If you have a valid key it should work for you, assuming 15 and 16 are the same.

If this alone is your concern the key is not the issue. Some vehicles do not provide for customer programming. In that case you have no choice but to take it to someone with capable scanning equipment. So the seller is likely passing on a generic message about programming your key. A dealer programming a supplied key will add the caveat, it MIGHT work, if not it is your problem.

Your mistake was ordering off of Flea Bay. I ordered mine on Amazon and programmed it myself. Home Depot will usually cut the key for free in my area as they do not have a skew number for it to scan at the register. Works like a charm but does not have the unlock and lock features. I just wanted an extra so I could program another key myself if I lost an original. You must have 2 programmed keys to do this.

I ordered this key from amazon about 2 weeks ago for $18. Identical in looks and quality to the OEM one. I took it to my local Jeep dealer and they even cut it for free. I still have my 2 factory keys, so I was able to program it myself.

Did you try getting it cut, and then programming it yourself (following ower's manual instructions)? I'd say there is a good chance it will work fine.

It has been more than a year ago now, but I bought two chipped blanks on eBay and got them cut locally - and after programming them per the manual, they both worked great (even though the vendor didn't think they were the right ones for my Wrangler). I hid one on the rig so I can recover if I lock myself out, and keep the 2nd one in the house for emergencies.

I bought a blank Jeep key on line for my 2015, had it cut at a ACE hardware that did not charge to cut it. I think they are only set up to charge for keys they sell . what ever. It opens doors no problem. With the two original keys I was able to program the third key no issue.

Very simple to do. I do not have power locks or remote my key was I think 111 bucks. You should be able to do the same.

I believe you are eligible for an extra key, if you purchased the max care warranty.

Thank you for mentioning that site! I was having a hard time finding a place with good prices that would ship to Canada (without charging a ridiculous amount for shipping). Ordered last night and they already shipped by the time I got up this morning.

Thanks for the tip about the fob covers too. I found some that cover the whole fob (no cutouts for the buttons), so hopefully that will give a little extra protection against any water getting in there. I've already dropped my keys in the snow a couple times while fumbling with them with gloves on.

This one worked for me and my 2015 JKU:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and this is my writeup on that page:

I can confirm that this fits and works in 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited (without remote start). I put the uncut key in the door lock and it slid in nicely, as a sort of confirmation that it was likely the correct key (obviously it didn't turn or unlock the door, as it hadn't been cut yet, but it slid all the way in fine). I then went to the local hardware store and got it cut to match the factory key. I then took my two factory keys, and following the procedure in the 2015 Wrangler Owner's Manual, I cycled the two factory keys through the ignition and then this newly cut blank key. I then used it to start the engine and drove with it. This programming procedure also programmed the lock/unlock buttons automatically on this new key. Note, the procedure is in the OWNER'S MANUAL and requires two good keys to make a third (procedure is not in the smaller USER's manual that came with the car, but instead the Owner's manual that I downloaded from Jeep or I believe is on the DVD they give you at the dealership when you purchase the car). The seller also provided a copy of the procedure in the mailed package which was nice. Assuming it lasts, I couldn't be happier. Note, if you don't have two working keys, you must go to the dealership or a qualified locksmith to have a spare key made. I have always cut and self programmed a third transponder key in the past for my various vehicles, so if I lose one key or one stops working, I still have two more and can make another spare myself instead of giving a bunch of money to the dealer or a locksmith.
