If you have a sentry key do you really need a kill switch? Your Jeep will shut off after 3 seconds without the key in range....
I'm tired of following my dreams, I'm just gonna find out where they're going and catch up with them later.

technically a kill switch shuts your vehicle off when its running in case of an emergency,

and you are absolutely correct about the sentry immobilizer key, if its a grey key then it has an RF signal and wont allow the vehicle to start without the key being really close to the ignition anyways....

If you have 2 grey keys, make a third. Its cheap and easy to make a new third key. If you only have 1 its a PITA to get a new key and will run around $100 if I remember right...

Then I would definitely get another made. I would be an even bigger pain to get one made if you lost that one.

or just get a regular key cut and tape the sentry key in your steering column so its always there :D


seriously though, call the dealer and get another key. if you lose that key you're boned for awhile... Once you get 2 keys, you can order blanks off ebay, have the key cut for a buck or 2, then your jeep can program the new key using the 2 others.

FWIW...One of the Wal-Marts down here (Ripley I think) will cut a key for free if you provide your own blank. However, if they mess up cutting it they won't provide another blank
