How to Use Your Land Rover Smart Key

Each new Land Rover model will include two smart keys, which act as remote controls as well as alarm systems for your vehicle. Not only can you use your Land Rover key fob with just a touch of a button, but your fob also includes an emergency key as a backup. Here are the basic functions of your Land Rover smart key.

  • Lock: Press the LOCK button to lock the door. If you have power-fold mirrors, they will fold in simultaneously.
  • Unlock: Press UNLOCK to unlock the doors and disarm the alarm. Your hazard warning lights will flash twice. This will also turn on your interior lights and unfold the power-fold mirrors.
  • Headlights: When you approach your Land Rover, your key fob can switch on the headlights automatically with a preset delay of your choice from 0 to 240 seconds.
  • Taildoor: Press quickly to unlock the taildoor alone. All other doors will remain closed for security.
  • Panic: Press and hold for 3 seconds or press three times within 3 seconds to turn on the panic alarm. Your horn and hazard warning lights will activate.
  • Emergency key blade: Push the release button.
  • Emergency key blade: Pull to withdraw the key blade.
  • Emergency unlock: Insert key blade into key barrel and rotate counter-clockwise to unlock door.
  • Keyless unlock: Press button on front of door handle to lock the vehicle.

How to Program Your Land Rover Key Fob

Wondering how programming your Land Rover key fob works? If your Land Rover key fob is not working or your Land Rover smart key is not recognized, you’ll find three simple steps to get you back on the road quickly:

Step 1

Step outside with all of your Range Rover doors closed to begin your Land Rover key fob programming. On the key unit and integrated remote fob, continuously press down the “Lock” button. As you’re holding down this button, put the key into your driver’s side door lock.

Step 2

As you’re still holding down the “Lock” button on your key fob, rotate the key in the door lock clockwise. Keep your key rotated as far as possible for three seconds. As you’re rotating your key back to the center position, take it out of the lock without releasing the “Lock” button.

Step 3

Stop holding the “Lock” button on your key fob once the key is clear of your door. The Range Rover and the key fob will synchronize and your remote buttons can then control your vehicle’s lock functions.

Why is the “Land Rover Smart Key Not Found” Light on My Dashboard?

In the event that you need to use the emergency blade key to unlock your Land Rover, or if your smart key isn’t recognized for some reason, you will need to use the keyless start backup feature both to first disarm the alarm and start your vehicle’s engine.

It’s important to note that the keyless start backup feature is only an option when, in your message center, you see “Smart Key Not Found – Position As Shown And Press Start Button” displayed. Should this be the case, here are the steps you will need to follow, according to Land Rover:

  1. Position the smart key flat against the side of the steering column. Note: There are markings on the steering column to help locate the correct position.
  2. While holding the Smart key in position, firmly press and hold the brake pedal.
  3. Press and release the engine START/STOP button.
  4. Once the engine starts, release the brake pedal, if it is safe to do so.

If, for whatever reason, your engine doesn’t start or your smart key isn’t recognized, please reach out to Land Rover Palm Beach, so that we can assist you!
