    New remote key fob.

    Hi, i wonder whether anyone could give a suggestion as to where the best place to get a new remote key fob for a 2001 P38A DHSE ?

    I had the misfortune to have another car broken into and the key of my P38 was stolen in a brief case. I am left with only one working key fob and that one is a bit dodgy so I have been using a key to open the car doors.

    Any advice on getting a new [or replacement] key fob would be most appreciated.

    Alternatively, if you want a genuine key rather than a non-standard generic key, your local Land Rover main dealer. You will need to take your registration document to prove it is your car but keys for EU spec cars are still available, it is only keys for NAS cars that have run out.

    Be aware that in mainland Uk a least only key number 1 (of 4 that were available) is now available. Try to order say key number 2 and the parts guy will announce that the parts ref defaults to number 1 key, but only a tad of a nuisance if you have memory seats that are set to adjust with different fobs. Cost is circa £148

    I am glad my fob is dead, some whiz kids with a laptop, copied my fob signal as I was locking my other car at a restaurant, got in, took some valuables and were kind enough to lock it back again.
    I only use the old fashioned “key in the door” on all my cars now .

    Code snatching is not an issue for our rigs.
    P-38s use a "Rolling Code" algorithm, so the whiz kids would be frustrated by an P-38 since the code it uses to lock will have been changed as soon as it was used. Your other car has a simpler system. Good luck in future with no fob.

    Re: New remote key fob.

    Gent a fob rebuild kit.... new battery cover Oring, because after all our fobs are waterproof if in good shape which mean a new button cover. If your actual fob case is damaged, get a new one off eBay. carefully cut open your old remote with a Dremel using cutting a cutting disc. Separate front and half on a table or counter so as to loose the blade spring or security chip the transmitter board, being careful not bend or damage the battery contacts.

    Re: New remote key fob.

    Hi, many, many thanks for all of the suggestions and information.

    I did ask Brit-parts who in turn called Land Rover and confirmed that new key fobs are available.

    What I didn't quite understand was something that he said about there only being one type of key fob for all UK vehicles, which I suspect is what Scimitargtc may be referring to.

    If new key fobs are ordered do you get new flip out keys cut and fitted in the fob ?

    No need. If you order a new key from Land Rover it is a complete key with fob and precut key blade ready fitted. From the VIN they can find the key lockset barcode which gives them the data for the code to be programmed into the fob as well as the key cutting info.

    Re: New remote key fob.

    Hello everyone,

    I just purchased a 2002 P38. It came with two keys, both regular keys, no FOB, no buttons, nada. Have to put them in the door to open the vehicle. Not a huge deal, but is there an option for US owners to get a new remote key fob?

    Hello, my new to me 2002 P38 only came with two manual keys. I'm in the US. Is there no option anymore to get a remote key FOB for US folks? Thanks!

    Yes, originally keys number 1and 2 were supplied, 3 and 4=were able to be ordered as replacements for lost/ damaged keys then there was options for non remote “valet” keys

    Would anyone happen to know if fobs are still available for Australian delivered vehicles? I assume they would be close to UK. Vehicle is 2001 4 litre.
