Hi ,

Sadly with the older system from Jeep the key fob needs to be reprogrammed with dealer diagnostic tools .

But what you can do so the system will work with out the remote is as follows .

With the ignition key lock and then unlock the door with the key step in and switch on the ignition then start the security light should go out when the key is turned to ON
if not close all doors and then do the same again with the passengers door ,and if for some reason this also does not work do this with the rear hatch door .

Should you need further assistance then pleas eget back to me .
