I will be ordering a new key from the main dealer within the next few days
I understand that they charge £60 for programming, but some of you guys have actually done this yourselves? Just wanted to check if its advisable and if it will actually work?! Not to fond of the idea of having no working keys if i get it wrong.
These are the instructions I have:
Programming a new Key
Replacing a missing master key is quite expensive from Land Rover, try not to get sucked into the extra cost of "Dealer coding" You can do this yourself in 2 minutes by following the simple process below.
1) Get in and close all doors. Turn ignition on and off quickly and remove the key (all within about 5 seconds).
2) Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition off, while holding down the "unlock" button, press the "lock" button three times. Release the "unlock" button. (You may or may not get the confirmation from the door locks.) Holding the key at your head level provides best results as the key sensor is in the side window pillar.
3) Repeat for each key you want to initialize within 30 seconds after the last one you initialized (if you have more).
4) Right after doing the last key, quickly put the key back in the ignition and turn it on/off again to finalize.
If anyone has any advice or expereince on this it would be ace!
