    Hello all. New to the forum here.
    I searched the forums for possible solutions to this question before I generated an unnecessary post but I couldn’t find anything sooo... here goes

    I recently had the opportunity to purchase a 2007 Jeep Liberty Limited for $300.00
    The two rear windows had fallen and broken inside the door and the previous owner was tired of the constant repair on the windows so I bought it.

    Fast forward I go to pick up the vehicle and find out after I bought it she broke the only key she had off in the ignition.
    I’m sure I can get the broken piece out but the issue is getting another key for it.

    I’m just wondering what my options are.

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum. $300/Limited, wow now that sounds like a great deal!
    That must have been one worn off key. If you have both sections of the key, an auto locksmith should be able to help get a new one, programmed up.

    Great. Thanks.

    I’m new to the Jeep world so forgive me if my next question is ridiculously stupid. Is it possible to replace the entire immobilizer?
    I have done it in other vehicles. (Toyota) just wondering if it would be plug and play or if the ECU would recognize it.
    I attached a photo of the part. I can get it for $80

    For piece of mind, I would much rather have the security, and you could possibly have a working key for $80.
