About Door Locks & Keys Complete Sets
A Land Rover door lock and key set is an essential part of a cars security system. In conjunction with several other components the door locks and keys allow the doors to be locked and unlocked via a key from outside the vehicle.
<Model> door lock and key sets generally include 3 units, one for each of the front doors and one for the bootlid or tailgate. The lock barrel is installed behind the door card or lining panel, and presents a keyhole to the outside of the door. The door lock barrel is connected to the door lock mechanism allowing it to be locked and unlocked. In cars with central locking systems the door lock barrel is also connected electronically to the ECU, allowing all doors to be locked and unlocked from one location. Additionally the ECU may be used to activate and deactivate alarm and immobiliser systems when the key is turned in the lock barrel.
Door lock barrels can fail due to wear and tear including damaged or worn keys, corrosion, damaged wiring (where connected to central locking) or due to attempted theft. The major advantage to installing a door locks and keys complete set is that all locks will use the same key.
Land Rover trivia
- One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
- Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
- When the Pope was visiting the UK in 1984, Land Rover designed him a customised Popemobile to use in the country.
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
