    I am hoping someone out there has experienced and a solution for our issue.

    My Wife has a 2016 Renegade TH. We are the first owners of this vehicle and we have 2 sets of keys (Fobs). With both Fobs, none of the buttons are working... Unlock/Lock/Remote Start/Panic.... NOTHING.

    The fob will work for the keyless entry and push start ignition.

    I have changed out the Fob Battery, Removed & hooked up the Neg Cable from the vehicle Battery with zero success.

    We have taken it to the Jeep Dealer, they said they did a software upgrade and reprogrammed the fob which they claimed fixed the problem, but when my wife tried the remote start the following morning, nothing worked.

    One Note.. the remote start and lock/unlock seems to work after the vehicle has been driven for a little while. But if it sits for a few hours nothing on the Fob will work.

    Please help if you can.

    have you tried relearning the fobs rfid?
    get in car, press non-key end of fob to the start button to start car.

    worth a try

    one end of your fob has the emergency key/glove box key, the other end is just plastic. the chip is towards this plastic end
