Thanks "BBS Spy" for your informative posting some time ago. I recently purchased an after market Disco 3 complete key, had the blade cut and had the key programmed for AU$95. The key chip is recognized by my vehicle so will start the car BUT the central locking does not work! The "programmer" said that he could not programme it. Now I have a spare key that I can access the car with via the passengers door and start the car but no locking capability! I drove the car home with the new key in the ignition and tried to lock the car when I got out; no luck. The battery is new but another new battery was tried in case it was dodgy. My original key locks/unlocks the car without any issues. I would take it to another dealer but at AU$95 a try it's just not worth the risk. The seller is not interested because the blade has been cut and the key has been "programmed". Any suggestions? Sad

My disco 3 keys are not recharging!

Hi all, can anyone help. Both my disco keys are not working, last week I had it in the landrover garage for the actuator/ handbrake to be sorted (that cost £975, and they where cheaper than any of the 4x4 centres), asked in there about a battery for my one fob that wasn't working only to find out that they are rechargeable so must replace whole key £210! (£140 for the key add vat and programming charge), now the second key has gone no way can I be paying £420 for two keys. Does anyone know any tips tricks anything I can do? Landrover suggested that the first key that wasn't working should be used to drive for a bit to see if maybe it could be recharged (he did say it was a long shot), I am really stuck!

I have one original key for my vehicle and two aftermarket keys. The aftermarket keys will lock and unlock the Disco manually via the passengers door and will start it however they will not remotely lock or unlock it; this is the cheapest alternative that I know of; AU$49.00. The keys need to be programmed and the blade cut; there are no batteries fitted or required inside the key fob. Your key should still work manually as mentioned above. Apparently a new battery can be fitted to the old key fob but the key fobs are very difficult to cut open. Good Luck.

I have just fixed the problem with the doors not locking with the fobs.After dealer said it would be Mega bucks I was sent an alarm wiring diagram from a great guy on this forum ,it was easy to fix, if you dont have 12 volts going into the receiver in the Gren and White wire take a wire from fuse 43 in glove compartment to the receiver and it should work, mine did.
All the best.

Could you send me a copy of this wiring diagram - we are having an on going problem not being able to lock the car, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt - no pattern to it - both keys are temperamental but used to work just fine - we have been for long drives to charge them and it makes no difference. Strangely though this has all been going on since we had to have a new alternator fitted????
I am going mad - leaving my precious Disco in the car park unlocked!
Many thanks


I have the same problem. If I understand, the green/white wire wich is connected on the reciver under the roof. There must be 12V, on my is only 1,75V. Seems to be broken wire. Near is blue wire and the ground (-) is on the circuit plate...... Rolling Eyes

inductive charging not working

I know this is an old thread but...
following the advice on this thread, I opened up the case, unsoldered the old battery, and soldered in a new one. tested with multimeter to ensure the connection is good, and the car was able to lock and unlock fine. After a couple of days, it stopped working. Opened the fob again and tested the voltage - it had dropped to 1.2v. Tried putting it on an electric toothbrush holder with no result.

Lost the spare key a while ago so oops.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? does anyone have the wiring diagram mentioned above?
