I found a fobless key that will work with the JL locks. It's a 2016 renegade emergency key, also referred to as 2015 - 2016 Jeep Fiat High Security Emergency Key. I ordered online ($3) and had it cut local. There may be other keys that work, the dimensions are 3mm X 7.5mm.

Other than the grooves that are cut in the key, is there anything special about the key that make it "high security"? I seem to remember that some car manufacturers actually had some sort of resistor in the keys as a security mechanism at one time. If the key is just a piece of metal, then it would be a simple matter to make a new blank out of a piece of brass and take it to a locksmith to have the grooves cut in it.

Just a piece of metal.

This is an un-chipped key. All those reading this thread need to realize this..

@Jebiruph ... Cut local by what kind of shop/store?

2015 - 2016 Jeep Fiat High Security Emergency Key might be confusing. This is just the emergency key part of the high security key, just metal - no chip or electronics.

@Jebiruph

Excellent info you have provided! It is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just ordered 2 on eBay.

p.s. Did you just go to a local locksmith to have it cut?

Great info, I want to do a hide a key and this is perfect. I will then keep my second fob in the vehicle with the battery removed.

You need to research this stuff so you understand ... Based on this post you have some misconceptions.

For what it is worth, a Faraday bag would prevent reading of a fob that was in such a bag.
