In the owners manual there was this section

• If the vehicle is unlocked by the Passive Entry Door
Handle, and no door goes ajar within 60 seconds, the
vehicle will re-lock and if equipped, the security alarm
will arm

So maybe I grabbed my door handle before I went to talk to someone and since I didn't open the door they all locked.

Also notes that the features that prevent you from locking your keys in (FOBIKsafe) is only active when the vehicle is in the off position

Ok, But if you didn't open the door, the fob couldn't get inside the car to lock it inside.

From the user error or bad programming desk, I bring you this nugget. Pulled up to a pizza place with my wife while we were having, a "heated discussion". We both get out and go inside, maybe 30 yards. The line is super long so we decide to bail. I see the headlights are on and when we get back the car was still running. Sometimes I really miss the old fashioned key.

Yes it can happen it just happened to me last night when leaving the ER, i have never had an issue with this - now I am completely locked out and had to leave my Jeep Renegade in the parking lot while i figure out how to unlock it.

Any helpful information will be greatly appreciated - i have contacted the dealership about a replacement FOB but have gotten no response.

The Uconnect app from iOS's app store or Android's Play Store can remotely lock/unlock your Renegade as long as you have an active subscription. If you're within 1 year of purchase your subscription should still be active. If not, you have to pay for the service.
I can lock and unlock, sound the horn, and remote start from the app.
I hope this helps!

Did you not get 2 fobs with your Renegade?? Even if the 2nd remote won't unlock the door for some reason, just use the emergency key and unlock that way.

What if you made a copy of the valet "file" hopefully with an eyehole and put with house keys?
