Brad Chip Posted April 25, 2009 Share Posted April 25, 2009 (Iwill post on Landyzone & RRnet but was hoping someone on here may help) Got big problems. Owned her for 2 weeks and my battery went flat the other day so removed from vehicle and bench charged it. Put it back into my Range Rover P38 (year 2001) only to find that the engine has disabled itself. Luckily I had the owners book with the emergency code and how to enter the code. Using the drivers door lock I tried to enter the code but it is not accepting it and the alarm just goes off when I try to start the engine. I have confirmed with Land Rover dealership that the number is correct, but is still doesn’t work. As per my hand book it says insert the key in to the drivers lock and turn AC 4 turns returning back to the vertical key position each turn, then enter the 4 digit code CW (one turn for each digit of the code) then the next digit AC then CW and AC with the last digit then turn the key CW and hey presto the engine should be enabled, HA! HA! Insert the key in ignition all the messages for window set come up then turn to start the engine and engine disabled message appears again. I have tried entering the code lots of time ensuring im doing it carefully with full turns etc When I spoke to the guy at landrover today he said it could be the electronic bit isn’t reading the key turns properly and to replace the part myself is £140. If this will sort it out so I can drive the vehicle then sobeit, but I don’t want to purchase it, install it, only to find out it still doesn’t work. Any ideas from anyone would be helpful at this stage. Cheers BC frustrated owner) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
