Does Land Rover use transponder keys?

Land Rover transponder key The first Land Rover transponder key appeared in 2002 with the Freelander. Since 2006 all models manufactured by Land Rover use transponders.

In 2010 Land Rover first introduce Push Start ignition and smart keys in their vehicles. This system consist of the Remote Function Actuator (RFA) or Keyless Vehicle Module (KVM) ECU.

What is a Land Rover transponder key used for?

Vehicle Anti theft The basic purpose of Land Rover transponder key is to eliminate car theft. Without the proper programmed chip in the key, the starter solenoid will be cut-off the power to the ignition and the car will not start.

How does Land Rover immobilizer works?

Immobilized Range Rover consist of a Body Control Unit (BCU), communication channel (K bus), Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and transponder key. Range Rover use a 'rolling code' system to change value each time the key is used.

When the driver door is unlocked, the BCU outputs a 'vehicle unlocked' message on the K bus to the ECU. The ECU then energises the transponder coil around the ignition switch. When the transponder key inserted into the ignition switch, the ECU reads the identity of the chip. If the key is valid, the ECU outputs a 'valid key in ignition lock' message on the K bus which disengages the steering column lock. The steering lock then sends a release signal to the immobilisation ECU.

When the ignition switch is turned, the ECU interrogates the transponder for the password and rolling code. If these are correct, the ECU sends the coded release signal to the ECM and energises the starter solenoid to crank the engine. The ECU also update the transponder with a new rolling code to use for the next time.

Land Rover use a Stealth Active anti clone theft immobiliser system which prevent cloning of keys! The Stealth Active system runs in the background of the immobilizer. When a car thief try to use a cloned key the dash presented an unauthorised mode alarm which prevents starting the vehicle.
