I have a key blank and fob for my '03 Discovery but I need a place to cut the key and program the remote. I called the San Jose Rover dealer and the lady said it would be $250 to program it, an additional charge to cut the key and that the next available appointment was a week away. I'd rather not pay that much or wait that long if at all possible.

 

Is it possible to program the remote with my Hawkeye tool?

 

I called Cerrone's in Redwood City and he can't do both tasks.

 

Any advice on what I can do to get this done quickly would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Marc

Do you still have a working key and fob? If so, there are places that will "clone" them to new ones. Basically, instead of programming the car to recognize two separate remotes, it copies everything from the working remotes to the cloned ones so the car always thinks it's just the one fob being used. There was a place on the Peninsula we had do it for a Jag a few years back. It was $75 to buy a new key, new fob, and have them cloned to the existing.

No I only have one worn out key and the remote has never worked. It's all the owner had when I bought the vehicle.  For the last few months it's been difficult to operate the door lock and now it's so unreliable that I just don't lock it anymore. It's also a little tricky to get it to turn in the ignition but works after jiggling it around some.

The remote doesn't get programmed, the car does. Any locksmith can cut it.
Have you got the tag with it, or only the internal barcode? Some programmers need the long code.
Hawkeye cannot do keys.

Try Colin at CT Motorwerks, I think he can help you.

Ignition lock can be removed and the levers filed to make them work more smoothly. Worst part is removing the two shear bolts to get the cylinder out.
