Having a issue: Alarm, lights, etc. come on but will not start nor unlock unless the actual key is used. Anyone else have this problem?

I am working through that as well. My next is to have the fobs reprogrammed. if it works I will let you know

currently have to use key to lock unlock drivers door, then quickly get key in ignition as the alarm (factory) starts honking horn, drivers door lock/unlock button does not work.

I will be diving deeper into this over the week ahead. Picked up two of the junction boxes at a pick and pull, one from an 08 commander and the other from an 06 grand cherokee. The commander had a similar option package, heated seats and rear a/c. the grand cherokee has the same part number and figured it may have a relay or two I can use. partially did not want to have to go back, @$17 each figured it was worth it to grab them both. I also grabbed the window/door lock "block" from a drivers door as well so have a few options. basically I am firing off the "parts cannon" at it so see what works! :p

i do not have a fob programmed yet, just keys.. so will get one programmed this week as well.

that junction box thread is great! hoping i have enough good stuff to make it work.
