Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

You will need a scantool to program the remote, do you have one?

No

If you have lost the keys you will need to call a mobile locksmith to come cut you a key and then you will need a scantool such as the DRBIII I use here at the dealership to program the remote...

REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

To program the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter access codes into the RKE receiver in the Central Timer Module (CTM) requires the use of a DRB scan tool. Refer to the proper Diagnostic Procedures manual for more information

I'm sorry but there is no way to bypass this, a scantool will be needed...

Yes there is a way to program the remotes.. You will need a DRBIII and you can program them with no issues... We(Dealership) charge .5 labor which is arounf 55.00 to program keys and remotes..
