Rover -Lucas 3TXD/Lucas 17TN key fob

Hi,
I have rover 420 Si (1996).I have only one key fob (on the cover it says it is Lucas 17TN but on the circuit board it is printed as Lucas 3TXD).I purchased Lucas 17TN key fob(433MHz) from eBay. Could you please tell me whether it works with my car? Please advice about reprogramming service (I live in Coventry).Experts please advice.
Many thanks

If mean 3TXB then they are compatible.

I have new OE spec 17TN's and the circuit board says 3TXD. You will have no worries coding these to your car.

Have you made programming of the fob to your car?

3TXD is correct for the the fob marked 17TN on the casing - they are compatible with systems using the earlier 3TXB fobs, but they will need programming to work with your car (any auto locksmith, or many garages with suitable diagnostic equipment should be able to do this). You will not be able to make them work with your car yourself by simply pressing the buttons on the fob
