KeyFob override?

Hi

I have a 96 Disco 300Tdi. At present the squeaker minor has terminally
reduced functionality of my spare key fob. My main (and only
remaining) key fob is working fine - for now, however should this one
give up the ghost, then I suspect I would have a rather useless LR?

Should the worst case senario transpire, is there a means of
overriding the immobilizer? The alternative is either a very expensive
new key from LR (not too keen on that) or a whole new immobilizer -
and I am not even sure if that is dooable?

Any Ideas

Regards
Stephen

Try these http://www.remotekey.co.uk/discovery1.htm I have used them before
and they are very helpful and know what they are talking about - a rare
opportunity to experience it too.
They will take your keyfob, refurbish it and will return it, I believe a 48
hour turn-around!!!!!!

Best of luck

Yes there should be, read the manual for your car, it involves entering the
the pin code for your immobiliser using sequenced opening and shutting of
the drivers door and turning of the ignition lock. I kid you not!
