Default Anyine know how to program a key fob?

I just bought a 02' grand cherokee. It only came with one key fob to unlock the doors with. I have three key fobs for my other WJ, so i want to reprogram one to work on my new jeep. So I have two for each vehicle.

Bingo! Since the early ZJ's, pre '95, dealers have to program the keys. Or perhaps a very large locksmith may have the tool, but my local locksmiths don't have the tools. YMMV...

That's the procedure to program the early pre '95 remotes, not a WJ procedure...

The Owners Manual that came with my 2000 WJ has a procedure in it. I was also told the dealer has to do it. Or was that the key? Not sure now. But I was told by a dealer bthat they have to hook the vehicle up to a machine to do one or the other. Quoted me $60.00.

You will have to have the first programmed by the dealer if you do not currently have one that works. Otherwise, you should be able to program the fob as directed above. The keys themselves (if your key is a gray transponder key) have to be programmed by the dealer and there is really no shortcut around that to my knowledge.
