Try the old stand by for your no start. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour. This MAY reset the anti theft system. As for the wires in your door. Look and see if the place they hook up to are slightly different in size. As for the fob? It's toast. Now, when you get the Discovery running...... Sell it! It's a parts and mantanice pig! You have my sympathy. Good luck. I've said a prayer for you.


Consider a simple car like a Honda.
