Land Rover Discovery: Single/Multi-point entry

Press the unlock button; the vehicle unlocks in one of two ways:

  1. Single-point entry: On the first press, the driver's door unlocks. If a locking fuel filler flap is fitted, it also unlocks.

    A second press is required to unlock the remaining doors and luggage area.

  2. Multi-point entry: On the first press, all of the doors, the fuel filler flap and the luggage area unlock.

To change from Single to Multi-point entry (or vice versa), press both the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for three seconds. The hazard warning lamps flash twice to confirm the change.

This feature may also be set via Vehicle Set-up in the Instrument panel menu.

Note: If an audible warning is emitted when the vehicle is unlocked, there may be a fault with the alarm sensors. Consult a Retailer/Authorised Repairer as soon as possible.


Press and hold the Smart key unlock button for three seconds to unlock the vehicle and open all of the windows.

To cancel Global opening, press any of the buttons on the Smart key or operate the driver's window switches. To stop a particular window opening, operate the relevant window switch.

Note: Global opening can be enabled and disabled via the Instrument panel menu. INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU


Keyless entry allows the vehicle to be opened if a Smart key is within 1.0 m of the door handle or the rear external switch.

Note: The Smart key may not be detected if it is placed within a metal container, or if it is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen, such as a smartphone, laptop (including when inside a laptop bag), games console, etc. Keep the Smart key clear of such devices when attempting Keyless entry, Keyless locking or Keyless starting.

Note: The Smart key needs only to be on the driver's person, or in a non-metallic bag or briefcase. It does not need to be exposed or handled.

The keyless unlocking sensor is located on the inner surface of the door handle.

Grip and pull the door handle to open the door. The vehicle unlocks, the alarm system is disarmed and the hazard warning lamps flash twice as 'unlock' confirmation. If Power-fold mirrors are fitted and enabled, they fold out.

Note: If Single-point entry is the current security setting and a door other than the driver's door is opened first, all of the doors unlock.

When all of the open doors have been closed, after entering the vehicle, the vehicle scans the interior for a valid Smart key. If a valid Smart key is not detected, SMART KEY NOT FOUND is displayed in the Message centre. If this situation occurs, then use a valid Smart key to carry out the Keyless start backup procedure.

The security system fitted to this vehicle is Thatcham category 1 approved and meets EU regulations 97/116 and EU directive 95/56 EC.


When the driver's door is opened using either the Smart key or Keyless entry, the vehicle's electrical system initiates the Convenience mode. The following systems become functional:

  • Driver position memory.
  • Seat and steering column adjustment.
  • Interior and exterior lighting.
  • Message centre.
  • Auxiliary power socket.
