2nd Key Fob

Since my used Cherokee didn't come with a 2nd fob, I "forgot" to give the dealer the 2nd one from my 14 Charger trade in. Is there any way to have it programmed for the Jeep?

No.

From the owner's manual:

Replacement Keys
NOTE: Only Key Fobs that are programmed to the
vehicle electronics can be used to start and operate the
vehicle. Once a Key Fob is programmed to a vehicle, it
cannot be programmed to any other vehicle.

I bought my 2016 TH used and only got one FOB. Stopped at the dealer to see about getting a second one. $164 for the FOB, $33 for the key, and then $130 to program the FOB. They could at least by me dinner first.

no, they're entirely different fobs with different transponders in them. they're incompatible. it is possible to reprogram a key (regardless of what the owners manual tells you ) but you need to have the right key, which you do not have.

you might want to reconsider giving the second key to the dealer. you're not sticking it to them, you're only hurting the next owner, who will be in the same boat you are in now.

I give the key to the dealer yesterday. I realized how bummed I am about not having the 2nd fob and figured I should be the good guy.

If I were looking to buy used and there was no 2nd fob, I'd walk away. There is no way on this planet that the dealer should not supply the second fob. Why should the buyer pay for that? They took it as trade-in.

This has been debated many times. Used cars do not always come with two keys. Nowhere does it say that the second owner is entitled to two keys. Not even Chrysler CPO. A pretty silly thing to "walk away" from if you ask me.
