i am going to be installing me dice unit to integrate my ipod. It says that i may need a security code for the radio, because i am disconnecting the battery. Is there a radio security code for the 2004 hse range rovers?? if so where would i find mine, i did not see any mention in my owner's manual.

If you do not have the security code you can contact the dealer to obtain it.

it is a 2004 vehicle, if there is a security code, i am assuming that it is unique to the vehicle...would the dealer still have this?? if i disconnect my batter, do i need a security code for my radio?

don't think there is a radio code on FFRR as the radio is built in, just changed the battery in mine and didn't need one.

There is an "Immobilisation Code" This will prevent the car from starting, not just the radio!

Under the "On Board Computer" section of your owners manual ("Audio, TV & Navigation" supplement)

You can choose to enter a 4-digit code which will
lock the ignition system. When the code has been
activated, the engine will not start unless the
code is deactivated.
the code input.

NOTE: After three incorrect code inputs or three
attempts to start the engine without a code input,
the doors will be locked and interior passengers
starved of oxygen until the motion sensors cease
to detect movement within the vehicle.

I have a 2004 RR as well and I wanted to disconnect the battery for some electrical work. I contacted my local Land Rover dealer about the radio security code, as they did not sell me the car, they did not have a record of it. They told me to contact Land Rover USA. I called them. They requested me to fax over proof of ownership and they would call me back with the PIN. I had not even faxed the proof of ownership and they called me back already. The woman I spoke to mentioned that she could not locate a security code for my vehicle. She confirmed this with someone else at Land Rover USA, who told her that at the 2004 model does not have a radio security code.
I disconnected my battery for at least an hour and connected it again. No issues, just make sure you wait at least 2 minutes before disconnecting the battery after turning off the car and removing the key from the ignition. Also don't forget to fully turn the steering wheel from left to right when you start up the car the first time after connecting the battery.

And look at the workshop manual before disconnecting the battery!
At the positive terminal is an explosive emergency disconnector in case of an accident. Disconnect the wrong way can force a BOOOM ... `)
