    Can I add a Discovery key to my Defender BCU using

    I have a 2005 Defender with the 433MHz Fob system. Because one of the two original Fobs was a bit temperamental, I bought a Disco style ignition key (Fob is part of key) from the UK a couple of years ago. The key was sent with a little programmer and I successfully added the key/Fob to the BCU. Now, I need to add an additional key and I noticed that my Nanocom has the capability of managing/adding Fobs to the BCU as well. However, Iím not too sure if this also works for the Disco style Valeo keys. I didnít want to embark on an experiment as my understanding is that the Nanocom Plip function deletes all Fobs and they can be re-added one by one.


    So, my question is: can I add a Discovery Valeo key to my BCU using the Nanocom Plip function.


    Thanks

    Dunno if this helps, but I had no issues adding Valeo Disco keys to my Disco using the Nanocom.

    Adding a Fob/security key to the BCU in Nanocom is different between the Td5 Defender and Td5 Disco. For the Disco, a security code needs to be entered in Nanocom if I understood this correctly and you only delete the first key in the list. For the Defender, all keys get deleted when Plip (only option in the menu) is used and keys/Fobs have to be added by clicking the button on the Fob a couple of times until the BCU recognises the key. Hence me being a bit apprehensive to try it.

    I forgot to mention that I sent this question to Blackbox, but haven't received an answer (yet).

    I really doubt that a D2 key can be sync'd to a Defender. the main reason is that the Defender doesnt have a BCU and the Lucas 10AS system is completely different than the Valeo BCU

    Fair point and thanks for explaining the difference. The Disco 'look-alike' key, I bought from the UK works just fine (literally looks like a Valeo Disco key without the Valeo logo on it). I just wanted to find a cheaper solution to to my previous purchase.
