    FOB key replacement

    Well with the first real trip with the 2014 van and the wife has already misplaced her key. What am I looking at for a replacement?

    From the dealer a few hundred bucks

    Call your dealer and see if you can bring in your own new key to have them program it. If they are agreeable to this, you can get a new key or keys off ebay. The basic keys are about $20 and the remote keys are about $70. You would then need to bring all your keys and the van to the dealer to have them program them to work.

    Yes they quoted me a price of 200 and $225 for the key. Ridiculous. will query if they will program a key where do I find them on eBay what do I look for?

    $200 just to program it? That's a rip off. My dealer only charged me $30 and I supplied my own "new" key (from ebay)

    Just look for a 2014 Grand Caravan key with the same number of buttons as your current one. Look at the feedback of the seller as well before purchasing.

    You were mentioning a basic key and also a remote key what is the difference? would the basic just start the vehicle and that would be it?

    A basic key is likely one that will unlock the doors but have no chip or remote. Then again a basic key could be one that has a chip but no remote functions.

    Ones that work for 2011+ will work for the 13's and 14's as well. Here is the difference. I believe you have the base FOBIK key with Lock, Unlock and Panic on your 14.

    Basic Key


    FOBIK


    According to the Chrysler published Labor rates "programming a Fobik" is .75 hours of labor. So if their labor rate is $100/hr, Fobik programming is $75 (which is still insane) $200... I hope their giving you some lube with that *** pounding... INSANE

    If they quoted you $200... $125 I believe is MSRP for the FOBIK, so thats $75 for programming... Keep us updated

    Yes screenshot's were just taken off of ebay a few minutes ago, so they are fairly accurate.
