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.

    Insert the second Sentry Key in the ignition cylinder and turn on the ignition. Wait for a chime to sound and for the vehicle's lights to flash. Turn the ignition to the "Off" position and remove the second Sentry Key from the ignition cylinder.

    Insert an un-programmed Sentry Key in the Jeep Grand Cherokee's ignition cylinder. Turn the ignition to the "On" position within 60 seconds of inserting the Sentry Key. Wait for a chime to sound and for the lights to flash before turning the ignition to the "On" position again. Wait three seconds before turning off the ignition.
