Take another 12v battery apart, (also a little UPS 12v battery works well) wire two thin wires SECURELY on the poles of battery and to the thick wires of the car, (attention the polarity, + to +, - to -, so the batteries now are in parallel) and tape the wires.
(Do not try turning on the car meanwhile)
You can now change the main battery without losing your precious code (;])
Good work !

Get some jump leads and another battery of car, connect the leads to the terminals after you have loosened them make sure they stay connected while you remove the battery this way the radio will remain powered and you will not have to put in the code

Take your Land Rover to a L/R dealer they will obtain the VIN from the vehicle and search their archives and should be able to pass on the radio code if radio is correct for the vehicle some radios require removal from the vehcle to obtain numbers from the frame. hope this is helpful.

I have a 1996 land rover discovery, I just had a new battery put in and lost the radio code.I need the radio code and instructions on how to put it in the radio.


The folding pouch that came with the truck would have a card inside a plastic holder with the number on it. I do not know about pushing a button so many times and then on to the next number. All I do is enter the five digit code and bingo. I work on mine a lot and have to reset it every time I disconnect the battery. Check with the dealership or get online at a landrover forum;http://www.lrrforums.com/index.php?s=2520478ada19011f439696be3e4e31d3 and there are experts there who can help at no charge.

Land rover 2004 radio says alert wont change


In order to fix you need the code, typically the code is in the owners manual somewhere. Otherwise you can get the radio code from the dealer. I have seen this problem about 10 times and the code has always worked. Hope this helps!

Radio unlock code for 1998 land rover discovery


Give the dealership your VIN# and they will in turn provide you with an 'unlock' code. Input the code and you should have radio. If not, you will need to remove the radio and give the dealer the chassis # found on the case.

Radio code


I had a new cd player fitted to my 97 discovery and that did. Raido codes are free, providing you can prove ownership. Just visit a main landrover dealer, they got mine in about 10 minites.
