FBHIC3 Additional Internal 2nd Temp Sensor
Bell Auto Services is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new GSM&GPS Fuel Burning Heater Controller for the LR Discovery 3 and RRS 2.7L & 3.6L diesel model pre MY2010 models.
The FBHIC3 can also be fitted to the later Discovery 4 3.0L when the “Timed Climate” software option is activation is enabled on the car. Without Timed the climate software activated, the FBHIC3 will not work on Discovery 4.
Ideal for warming your engine on cold winter mornings while sat in the comfort of your house, no need to go outside and start your engine to defrost the car, this is especially handy if you have a Discovery 3 with faulty or failed heater plugs and wont start in cold temperatures.
BAS has listened to customers requests and produced a product that will externally start your fuel diesel burning heater already present in your car by using your Land rover plips standard 3rd button when its set to control the follow me home headlights or by sending an SMS. (sim card must be installed)
Start and or stop the heater by pressing the plip to flash activate the head lights for 5-10 seconds or by one of the many options we added for pre set timed starts on SMS.

Fitting a sim card:
1, Remove the two screws holding the end plate on shown.
2, GENTLY slide the cover open making sure not damage the Antenna cables.
3, Next gently slide out the main PCB exposing the sim card holder.
4, Slide the silver sim card lock to one side and lift it up to access the sim slot.
5, Insert your MICRO sim and close the sim card lock, re install the main PCB into the case and fasten the two end plate screws as shown in picture one above.
We have tested many PAYG sim cards on UK networks Vodaphone, EE and O2 which are the most commonly used successfully. Other networks may also work.
NOTE: FBHIC3 DOES NOT support the Three network , please also be aware, understand and abide by any usage terms from your sim card provider.
Connecting the Antenna:
Connect the antenna cables to the main FBHIC3 module make sure to get them the right way around as seen in the picture above.
(The round magnetic antenna base can be mounted behind the front grill)
Connecting pin 2 to the heater:
Head light wire connection:
The connection made to Pin11 of the head light loom ‘Blue wire with pink trace’ should be done either with soldering as a spliced joint or with a Butt crimp connector making sure you T into the wire leaving the original wire connecting to the heat light….
GND & Power connections:
If preferred you can fit an additional 3 Amp fuse in the RED 12V Battery Power wire for added protection, or solder into the cars fuse box wiring utilizing the FBH original 5A fuse that is present.
Pair your phone to the FBHIC3:
After wiring and connecting the FBHIC3 to the car for the first time allow it to get GSM & GPS signal for at least 10 minutes before trying to send ANY SMS instructions or pairing commands to the unit.
The unit has 3 spaces for control phone numbers, T1, T2 & T3.
The (Master) number will be stored in T1 location by default.
Send an SMS to the FBHIC3 with the characters HE and wait for the unit to respond with standard help message main menu, this gives you SMS instruction help for use of the module.
Cmd:HE (Time Is Shown Here)
Help is available for:
ON OT DT OF TR TM SS TQ RT TI TE CF CO CP ML GP DI
Use HE xx for details.
After you get the above message reply in SMS your phone is now paired to the FBHIC3 location T1.
