To reactivate just reverse procedure.

Like it - if you do it 10 times it probably blows it!!!

I seem to remember some strange hack for the Discovery3 - it has a webasto style diesel heater - apparently some radio code would enable or disable the preheat mode. I think they decided that you would have to buy a Range Rover to get the option of having a preheat facility so the car is nice and warm for you in the morning.

Also the D3 only had 1 touch windows on the driver's side - the old Discovery had it on both - mad!!!

Typical I learn this when it's going back tomorrow - have been too ill to use it as much as I would have liked but still managed to put 2,500 miles on it.

No it didn't. It has one touch on all four doors. And so does D4

Hi Codders.
Welcome back, glad your better. I assumed you'd got your knee stuck under the Defender!
The first D3's had the software in to allow the Webasto heater to be set via the computer but it was never intended to be used, as soon as you locked the car and it went to sleep the settings went with it Some bright spark then found that the radio power also powered the timer so leaving the radio on with muted volume and you came out to a warm car and engine. The software was removed about a year after launch during the enhancement update. Several D3 owners have installed a seperate timer to activate the heater.

All this talk of Landrovers is making me feel even worse.

I waved goodbye four hours ago to my trusty 300tdi (OK, maybe not so trusty, it wasn't in fine health!) and am now driving a depressing 'family' car.

If any of you good people upgrade to a RR or a D4 or similar, and have an old Disco/Defender that needs a good home...

If the battery has been disconnected on my car for any reason the one-touch operation of each window has to be reactivated by fully opening and then closing each window and then holding the close button for a further second.

My LR3 does not do one touch either,
All of these processes to get stuff to work sound suspiciously like the computer game cheats kids use to get extra powers in mario kart etc..
Maybe some programmer in the land rover chip factory has a twisted sense of humour!
