Sorry but you're going to have to remove the passenger seat.
Don't ask how I know

Wait, I know that's a joke but do people actually call that space a fob holder and use it as such?
It holds my phone when I plug it into the USB.

Some millennials had a protest on another thread about the size of the fob, doesn't look good in skinny jeans or something....

On our way to the beach my husband dropped the key in between the seat and console. In an attempt to reach it he pushed it under the console a bit. It’s visible but not reachable. Is the key magnetic? Hoping we don’t have to take the console off. Any ideas guys?

We have up trying for now. Can’t give up paddle boarding today haha.
If you don't want to remove the console.... maybe removing the seat would be quicker and easier :rock:

If you don't pull the FOB out of your pocket and place it in it's said holder in between the cup holders on the center console, you run the risk of the Jeep tilting to one side and possibly fipping the Jeep on it;s side or losing control of it. There's a reason why FCA engineers put the FOB holder in the center of the vehicle. Come on now...sheesh...:facepalm:
Wait what!?? I put my cellphone in that slot... never even tried to put my fob in there.....

Was just going to ask for pictures. The FOB is huge and cant imagine a crevice (black hole) sucking in the FOB. I am sure by now OP got it out but still curious to see. :movember:

I did the same thing. I just unbolted the seat and tilted it back and you can get right in.

You're right, us millennials don't see a need to pull the fob out of our pocket to start a push-button ignition vehicle ;)
What do you do after you start it? Do you actually drive or that would contribute to greenhouse gases so you don’t? Or is it that you just don’t know how to drive because of all those participation awards you won in sports for finishing last???
