2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee keyless entry

Keyless entry won't hold programming.

Manual sez to press unlock button six times, and then test it...nothing happens.

I turn the ignition to the "Run" position, and then get things working after a couple of button presses... programming appears to "take" and all buttons on the remote will function.

I turn off the ignition and try it... nothing happens.

Batteries are good in the transmitter and the remote functions according to the remote tester at Auto zone. ideas?

The RKE is programmed with a compatible scan tool through the Passenger Door Module (PDM).

The only scan tool that can perform this type of programming is the DRB3. (that I know of)

Hope this helps
