Hi all help needed please !!!!!

I replaced my battery as it had been stood for a few weeks and was flat.

But now carnt get the key remote to work to disable the immobiliser. 

I can open the doors with the key but the alarm goes off i put the key in the ignition turn it on and all lights on dash board come on as normal but the little red led just keeps flashing and wont start 

Any ideas ???

Thanks in advance

Try using the key to input your EKA. (Emergency Key Acess) Instructions in the handbook.

I always use my EKA - once you have put it in (quite a faff) then your physical key works like normal until next time you disconnect the battery. Once you have it running on EKA you can get your current keys coded to the car if necessary. My keys are not coded to the car but I have spent the last 50 years using physical keys so I don't really mind :D

Now THAT I don't know...

Mine was typed out on several bits of paper that came with the car - one in the glove box, one with the log book etc etc. Presumably the last owner was worried about losing it. I photographed it on my phone for the same reason.

I suspect that your friendly local Land Rover dealer could find it for you (for a fee no doubt) or it might be in the original docs that came with the new car - if you have them.

Happy you have resolve your discos issue, it’s a known problem with the receiver.

Re. the access code, that’s normal... enter the code but don’t lock lock the vehicle there’s no need to enter it again, then because you re locked the access code had to be re entered again, I assume that’s what u did.🙂
