Timpsons will be able to cut you a replacement with their off the shelf blank - got one (two actually, as the locks were changed on this car at one stage) yesterday - about £9 a key (yes, saw me coming but I was in a rush).

 

Chappie asked 'has it got a transponder chip' (Timpson's records seem to suggest every Rover has a transponder chip in the key) - nope, it's a separate fob. No hassle. Sound bloke actually - let me wander off with one key and check it before paying.

ISTR from my time at Longbridge in the 90's, that the immobiliser on the Swindon Accords is indeed a derivative of the Rover system. It being one of the few Rover contributions to the 600 / Accord programme. As the Rover guys told it, Honda were lacking any competitive alarm / immobiliser architecture so they Honda-ised the Rover stuff.

It's got nowt in common with the Lucas 5AS system on all the other Rovers of that era though.

The pre facelift Accords don't have a chip in the key. IIRC my mum's pre-facelift LS had remote central locking.
Interesting that it has a bendy key. Class!
I had a Rover 623 manual for a while, that engine is so smooth for a 4 pot.
