The alarm systems on land rovers are quite tempramental. They work on radio frequencies. If you park next to a radio antenna like they have at post/ telecommunications offices. Then the radio waves they send out can interfere with your cars system, making it think it has been attempted to be broken into, and so immobilises. You should have a 4 digit code called the EKA code. You must have this to knock off the immobilser to start the car. The car must be locked completely, all windows shut and then enter the EKA code using your key.
Hope this helps

My fob and keyless entry system doesn't work correctly sometimes it activates and sometimes it just doesn't. also activate the immobilizer randomly, any ideas?


Based on all the info you have provided I think you need a professional to get involved here, I am not willing to "GUESS" what might be the issue or issues (more likely more than one).
Good luck

Wont start and shows pic of car on dash with a lock through it


Sounds like the immobilizer is activated? Disconnect the battery for an hour and then reconnect it. It _should_ reset the alarm.

Mechanics changing a battery try to do it quickly, the ECM thinks someone is boosting the car. What they should do is use a couple of lengths of wire to keep the power to the car the whole time of swapping over the battery. That way power remains in the alarm system and immobilizer at all times.

Fob still won't work after new battery and nothing wrong with the contact inside, do not hae original code for the Kia sportage 1998 so what is the next best thing ,to do?


When replacing the key fob battery there is no reprogramming required! If the key fob was working prior to the battery replacement then it would point to the contacts not being correct! Remove key fob battery and start again!

The immobilizer feature was tripped when the alarm went off. It sounds like the battery was indeed dead. My Nissan 300ZX used to trip the alarm when I jump-started it, although my Audi A4 does not. When the alarm is going off, you have to disarm it with the key or key fob first, or you won't be able to start it. Try putting the key in the door, lock it, unlock it, lock it again, and unlock it again, just to make sure you get a couple of arm/disarm cycles, then try starting it.
