After changing the battery on my remote start key fob doesn't fully work -- I can start the car with the fob inside (not needing it to touch the start button), but no other functions on the fob work and the red LED on the fob stays lit. 2018 JLU Saraha. Ideas?

As of 9/1/20.....Just an occasional lurker from now on...
@kericson I've followed this JL forum for 2 yrs. now and have seen no one post about a JL fob behaving exactly as your is.

If you haven't done so already, remove the battery from that fob and then put the battery back in and see if the fob still does not work correctly. Maybe even try a different battery.

After doing this, if the fob still stays lit, etc., then there is not much more you can do, then stop by the stealership Service Department and have them write it up and get you a new fob.

When they have/get the replacement fob, they will need the other fob you have, as they will need to reprogram both . SO, bring your spare fob with you to the stealership!

I had the remote start button on one of my JL's fobs stop working after a year of use. That fob was replaced under warranty.

Note: Not sure if you got that fob wet, ran it thru the washing machine, etc. but that might be the cause of the fob light staying on, etc.. IF so, when you go to the stealership, deny getting the fob wet if they ask you, etc.. Just say it just stopped working right. Stealership will always replace a problematic fob without giving you grief, just don't volunteer you did something that would impact negatively, the warranty on it.
