Thought I'd update this thread for posterity. It turns out that IIDtool from Gap (Purchased from Justin @ Lucky8 ) WILL reprogram used smart keys for the LR4. I bought a $50 eBay key that's actually in better shape than the one that came with the truck. Programming only took ~2min and 6 clicks of the unlock button -really amazing that the dealer charges $150 for that even if you buy their key... In other news the IIDtool looks really cool! Really looking forward to getting into it more and controlling my own destiny with this truck.

How much is the tool? I want to shut off the low pressure tire warning. I removed my sensors so it's always on

The bluetooth version is $580. I read that it will turn off the tire pressure warning but haven't done that (only had one warning thus far so it hasn't bugged the s*** out of me yet).

The tool has more reviews on landroverworld.org. I am pleased so far and anticipate that it will pay for itself over time. I guess that's the kind of logic my wife has when shopping and it's rubbing off on me.

Be careful of the slippery slope! I have to constantly remind my wife that there's a difference between "on sale" and "for sale!" :-)

Sounds like an very useful tool! I wish I could program the keys to the P38 as easily. $450! Ugh.

Unless you really feel the need to hook up interfaces/data log, or otherwise spend $ the non BT IID works just fine-it's a great device and should be mandatory for any 3/4 owner who is willing to turn a wrench on these trucks.

Agreed that one could do without the BT but it's only $20 difference and already seems easier to navigate though the app on the iPad or phone.

I just looked on eBay for a replacement key fob for mine that is falling apart. Turns out, there is a rebuild kit for it, LR059382. On one hand, I'm relieved that I can cheaply fix my rapidly self-disassembling fob but on the other hand, what a piece of shit. This is the first key fob I've ever had that didn't last one year.

All the rubber is falling off the one key I have. The other is in one of my wife's many purses never to be seen again.

Post the link to the rebuild kit.

Thanks Mark, it's been fun building while over here (the access to cheap fabrication obviously being the best part given the front bumper). More to follow in a bit...swing away tire carrier, aux fuel tank & dual battery setup all on the list. To think this was a 'mild' build at the start.

I did this recently. It doesn't have the same rubber part, it's all plastic, but makes a huge difference.
