Bought a 08 Wrangler Limited and got 2 keys with it.
Went to the auto parts store to have another key made and they said I would have to go to the dealer because the ignition key was computerized.

I asked about the plain (valet) key and they said if I tried to crank the Jeep with the valet key it would not crank and it would lock it in the ignition and then it would have to go to the dealer to have it removed.

Is this true? Ive never heard of this happening but it is a Jeep..

Thanks

1st, Welcome to JKO.

2nd. You can program the 3rd key yourself. Youtube it.

A non-programmed key will start the engine, but it will shut off in 2 seconds. The key will not be locked in the switch.
