Hey all you rangies,

I have one key for my 2006 RRS, and it’s a pile of crap. It’s been broken open, and modified to accept a new cr2032 battery. Needless to say it doesn’t work except as a physical key. Where is everybody buying their blank fobs from?

cheers

Same place (KEYECU) I got my spare, programmed with GAP IIDTool BT but you need one working key to do the job, there is a YouTube video showing the process...

I’m glad to hear somebody else is using these cheapos lol.
I use nanocom EVO not GAP tool, and don’t need instructions but thanks!

interesting timing. i had to replace one of the two keys i bought because the blade was difficult to eject from the body.

my wife is taking the two blanks to a semi-local shop to have cut for $35/each, she left about 15min ago. very difficult to find a shop able to do this nearby. they mostly offer mobile service only, and their visits start at $150.

going to be working late tonight, and then it's halloween, so i probably won't have the opportunity to (try to) program them to the car until tomorrow.

will update

the lock shop made quick work of cutting the keys, and the nanocom made quick work of programming them. quite pleased with the result:

two OEM (looking hehe) keys cut and programmed at $60/piece including amazon and cutting.

$22+tax per key
$35+tax per cut
Did require the use of the $600 nanocom tho

I also had to superglue the cheapo cases together because they have a tendency to pop open when cranking

I bought two of the #67 blade key and it matches my 2006 RR HSE key perfectly. It has the Land Rover logo so I know it s a high quality knock off. Next step is to find a person to cut the keys.

I’m not “up” on keys and have no idea what the designation is referring to. Glad they worked!

I had to call around to find a shop willing to cut them, it was no small feat.

I got the keys cut. 30 dollars each. probably call 30 places and visited 10. finally found a person willing to do it even tho they couldn't program the key. Now I am waiting for my GAP IIDTool BT to arrive.

Agreed, finding a brick and mortar establishment willing to cut a sidewinder was tough! Most outfits are mobile only, and will only come cut, program, and sell you their own key for nearly $200. In my area at least
