I don't have the part number to hand - it's a chip on the underside of the fob PCB when you have the battery cover off, so I'll have to look through pictures etc. But unfortunately you can't purchase virgin keys - they all came from the factory and LR, and I haven't seen any for sale elsewhere - even from the likes of aliexpress/alibaba in China. You can get Disco II keys, as you program the key codes into the BCU, rather than have to have the keys matched to the lockset for the vehicle. I think the D2 also uses a different transmission type, as I bought one to play with to see if it could be adapted.Marty, I don't have a p38 key here right now so I have to ask.
I suppose the Information is stored in an EPROM at production, like in the BMW keys.
Do you know which one?
In that case we could do the individual programming wherever we are and we could just order a batch of virgin keys, the blade yet to be cut and the EPROM to be written
That would be extremely helpful to know
I thought they were made by Huf? That's what some of the RF receivers and bits to do with fobs I've got here have marked on them. Or are they a division of Siemens?No they didn't, Siemens designed and built the fobs and receivers and supplied them to BMW and Land Rover.
As mentioned above - it's the OTP MCU chip. I can't remember the part number off the top of my head, but it's of the same family as the BECM MCU chip. They're all part of (from memory) the M68HC11 family.Even better. Do you know which chip it is?
