For an oil pump I use a cheap ebay one, which does 2 services before springing leaks and going in the bin. Search for "12v 60W oil pump" on ebay, filtering for UK sellers and you'll find them at just under £11.
Sounds like your keyfob is faulty. It's probably worth the investment in a genuine replacement to end the annoyance once and for all. IIRC UK dealer ones were around £75 plus programming, but you can often find them on ebay for £30-£40 - you then have to bung a few quid to a Fiat/Jeep dealer to program it to your car. There's a US seller offering a new keyfob for under £30 delivered at the moment - others may be able to confirm whether keyfobs all use a common RF frequency. Check with a dealer first on the recall though, as I once bought a keyfob off ebay, took it to the dealer for programming and was offered 2 free keys under the recall instead!
The Bosch S5 battery is about the best you can get without going for an AGM one, which our cars don't really need. It has higher capacity and supplies higher starting current than the S3.
If you're getting your wheels refurbed, that's the time to think about putting TPMS valves back in, otherwise it's going to cost you a few quid a wheel to get them fitted.
