      Hey Mike, you do seem to be the go to guy. I have an 95 LR Disco. My ignition got bad enough struggling with the key that I purchased a used on off of ebay. Question: is there any part of the new/used switch that has to be replaced with same part from the old switch so new switch can be read by cars brain. Everything fit fine, when I went to start it all turned fine, lights came on except when I went to "start" got a "ding' warning chime. Backed off the "start" it stopped. Turn to start and it chimes. Now when I go to take the key out the "key locking" solenoid seems to click to the wrong side. I have to manually move the arm to release the key. Curious indeed. Any ideas would be much appreciated

      Hi Mike, I see you've been helping many LR owner with their issues and am hoping that you can give me some insight to my issue. MY 05 LR3 with 54K started to idle/run rough, check engine light came on. Even under load there is still a rough "hitch" in the motor. I filled up the tank with high grade fuel, added Heet, Chev. injector cleaner, Seafoam and ran it for 30+ min at highway speed. The idle vibration lessened but is still there after running yesterday and today. "Reduced engine performance" is displayed on the info center and for sure power is noticeably reduced when attempting to pass or climb. Codes P0307 P0303 P0300 P0316 P0579. I'm planning on driving it till this tank of gas is gone and hope that what I'm experiencing is the effect of not putting premium in the tank for the last 5+ fills.
      I'll be online throughout the weekend researching this issue, but if you are able to respond that would be great. My number is 5098691912 pst...feel free to call or txt.Thanks,Pete
