Default Unlocking a Liberty w/o keys, keyless entry, etc.

I am the proud owner of a 2005 Liberty CRD. My last truck was a 2001 Expedition Eddie Bauer 4x4. One of the features I really miss from the Expedition was the keypad keyless entry. I could park the truck, leave it run with the doors locked, and on my return, use the keypad on the door to get in. In the alternative, I could lock it with it running and take the little keyless entry remote to get back in. Sometimes, when going to court, I would just lock my keys in the car to avoid security hassles, and just keypad in on my return.

With the Liberty's all-in-one key and remote, it is more convenient in my pocket, but there's no way to get in from the outside if I want to: 1) leave it running when I'm out of it; 2) leave my keys in it for some reason; or, 3) get back in after I've locked my keys in it. Moreover, as expensive as the keys are, and only having 2 keys, I cannot wire another key under it or something.

What I'm thinking about is how I can rig some way to allow me to unlock the doors from the outside without a key or remote...perhaps a concealed switch that would allow me to unlock the doors or something. Or perhaps a keypad that could be retrofitted. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions...Anyone?

Anyone familiar with the wiring of the electronic door locks?

ROFL!!! A brick! =D>

In all seriousness, this is a very bad situation the '05s are going through for people who like to do exactly what you're describing. I don't think the old key fobs will work with the new system, so you're faced with buying a new key.... which costs $100 from the dealer.

Default keypad

You can get keypads like ford offers installed. You just need to find someone to do it and they are a bit expensive. A local place by me installs all that stuff, keypads, sunroofs, remote starters, alarms, etc.

Yeah you could just buy a momentary switch and connect it up to the front door lock switch- then just conceal the switch somewhere outside. That probably would work.

I have a 05 key w/intergrated remote for sale if you like. Its uncut and new. I got it to use w/my 04 Renegade but it will not work on the 04s.... $50 is what it cost me.....Let me know if your intrested.... you could allways cut the metal key part and just keep the remote part with you......

Default For farm Jeep(problems with the all in one remte)

This might solve your problem,I bought the 05 limited and had somewhat the same problem I had a key cut at the dealer $3.00 they call it a (Valet key) it will get you in the door but DONT try to start the engine with it or you will be towing it to the dealer to have the system reset, that way you could hide the monster key somewhere inside.to start the car. good Luck.

Default Unlocking the Liberty

I agree with Bornbrit. I had a regular key cut (based on a comment from another member) just to unlock my steering wheel for towing. I haven't tried it on the door lock, but I assume it will open the door without setting off the alarm.

Same here. I went to the local locksmith for a key. They also told me not to start the vehicle with the key. Works fine for the door lock.
