read the owner manual. It easy to reinitialize.
the dealer does it with a scan tool
You have to program it with a DRB (Scan tool).
I had the same problem. Google "keyless entry remote 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee".
dealer has to do it with factory scan tool
it has to be done by the dealer. =(
Possible weak battery in the remote.

I had to replace a keyless remote for my 2001 dakota. I found one off od E-bay then I had to program it using the programing sequence in the owners manual. It was really simple. I only paid something like ten buck for the remote and have had no problems.
how do you program a keyless entry remote to a 2000 Pontiac grandprix programyourremote.com (program your remote.com)
The answer can be found at: http://www.thejeep.com/pilandprogram.html
if you have only changed the batteries in your remote then you press the unlock button 6 times until you hear a beep and then it is programmed. these details are in the owners handbook.
go to http://www.programyourremote.com/ they have programs for many makes and models
Open the keyless remote and you will see the battery take it out and replace it with the same size.
The dealers scan too can erase all remotes and reprogram any that you still have.
I am trying to find out how to do the reprogramming, but haven't found out how, but did find out that from 1999- 2004 the door lock fobs are interchangeable. You may need to take to Jeep dealer to actually get it programmed, but at least you won't have to buy a new fob.
Only way to have the remote entry control programed is to have a dealer program the codes. You cannot do it yourself. Believe me I tried. I recently had my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee programed by a dealer. Cost less than $20.00
The keyless entry system must be programmed with an OBD II tool which the dealer or locksmith has. Sorry that this is not the answer your looking for, I didn't want to hear it either.
It was optional.
Most of the time all you need to do is replace the battery. If it doesn't work after that, you will need to take it to a dealer.
Must be and can only be programed by an authorized Jeep Dealer. Cost around $20.00.
Try the mirror control.
You must contact a local Dodge, Chrysler, or Jeep dealer. They need to program it using the vehicle's diagnostic computer system. It will likely cost around $30; you might be able to go to your original dealer and get them to program it for free. Good Luck!
more info. Well i have a remote from my old 96 grand am. Now i just bought a different one and it didnt come with the remote. Can i program the old one to work with the new one? Its pretty much the same exact car minus a couple things.
