Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Battery is new, key fob died long ago which is why I use manual keys , fuses appear to be fine, lock pin in door not broken ( connected to handle ). Locksmith opened car but has no idea why keys don't work . Said its like car does not recognize keys. Alarm goes off immediately when u put key in ignition. Stereo , lights etc all work .
Problem sound like key or immobilizer the land rover discovery need diagnostic equipment to trouble shoot or reprogram key.

Found a web site that instructed us to turn the car on and off 8 times within 10 seconds and leave car on, on the 8th time. this is supposed to put the receiver into program mode. Press a button on fob and turn car off. Should be ready. Tried it, didn't work. This is for fobs that have already been programmed with the 40 bit code. Pulled off positive battery cable for a couple of minutes and put back on. Now everything works.

Im not sure there is any easy fix for this so I will just give a little advice.
Can you give me the make and model of the car? and is the alarm and immobilizer a standard factory one? Will do my best to help you once I know the make and model, and the year please.
