Manufactured by the Jeep division of Chrysler, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-sized sports utility vehicle that has been in production since 1993. Newer model Jeep Grand Cherokees use a keyless entry system known as Sentry Keys. A Sentry Key is a traditional car key attached to a programmable keyless entry fob. Once your Sentry Key fobs are programmed, you can use them to lock or unlock the doors of your vehicle by pressing the "Lock/Unlock" button on the fob.
