    Default Disco 4 - lost remote key

    Through my own carelessness I have lost one of my key fobs for the 2013 Disco 4. The stealers have quoted as follows:

    Part LR071651 which is a control module - R4332
    Part LR087663 which is the remote with blank emergency entry key blade - R4898
    Part LR027978 Key cut service R1231
    Labour R1650 (1.5 hours @ R1100ph!!!)

    TOTAL R13 930!!!!

    Now this quote is crazy!
    Looking up part LR071651 this control module is quite large and clearly fits in the car somewhere. Can any one explain why I need this if all I want is a replacement remote??

    Are there any alternative ways of getting a new remote (there seem to be quite a few online) from another supplier and then getting it programmed... by whom?

    Thanks

    Check whether your insurance covers it. Most policies automatically include between R2,500 and R15,000 cover for keys.

    On some of the newer discos the module is locked so you can’t code a new key. I assume you still have one key? The module sits in the boot on the drivers side

    Generally No as the makers only have the correct codes , my previous Alfa to replace a key was R6500. but 14 is crazy , live with one , many old cars I had, had only one key , not sure on the Disco but some you can set the seat, steering , etc for different drivers with different remotes , so when I drive it the seat adjust to me and if my wife drives its for her , our old Volvo S40 does that its 16 years old !
    Its just another rip off

    I bought a blank key FOB on eBay for my 2014 D4, it cost about R300 (at that time). Identical to the originals, probably same factory.

    I already had a Bluetooth IIDTool dongle, and used that to program the key FOB. IIDTool cost me about R8000, I seem to remember.

    I also bought a couple of physical blank keys (key blade) on eBay, but have not had those cut yet. I am sure that I can get that done at a reasonable price.

    I didn't buy the IIDTool for this purpose, I already had it, so as far as I am concerned it cost me R300 for a key FOB replacement.

    I still want to make another key for my Freelander, it has the same key as the D4. But to do that I would have to pay for an additional VIN license (to IIDTool) for the Freelander, would cost me another R1000 to do the Freelander key. I already have another blank key FOB for the Freelander.

    I'll PM you number of a guy I used for two of my cars.

    Give him a shout and see if he can sort you out

    His price was the most reasonable I found

    Our local builders warehouse had a key guy that they referred via the key department. Was about r3k. I now have the IID tool and would do it myself. Also willing to mend mine - but see there is already an offer for that

    There is a company in Terrace road near Fahrenheit restaurant on side that does car key remotes. Had mine tested there. Unfortunately dont have their number but I'm sure if you use Google maps you can pick them up. Might be able to help you.

    Thanks everyone. Will firstly see what insurance have to say and if that's a no-go will then pursue some of the suggestions. Even if insurance do pay its still an absolute ripoff. Have also sent a query into LR to find out why a complete module is necessary if only a key fob is required.

    Hi yes I still have one key...does that mean that you can program a replacement using the spare key as a "sample"?

    Yes. It's a lot cheaper if you have a key.

    The car remote company in Terrace road Edenvale will definitely be able to help. Have seen some of the roving vans that do it as well.
