You require an unlock code/ security code from the dealer. This will consist of 4 numbers. You can then input this code into the door lock to clear imobiliser. You will have to do this every time until you have your remote replaced or repaired. There is a procedure for inputting the code. What the display through the window with the door closed. You need to turn key to unlock or lock (depends on model) until you see the display react to your input. Once this happens you are ready to input the code. If for example the code was 3241 and you have turned it 4 times to the unlock position (most likely) you would start by turning it 3 times to the unlock, 2 times to the lock, 4 times to the
unlock, 1 time to the lock, pause then unlock the car and start the engine. It sounds tricky but once you get the hang of it its not too bad. If when you start to input the code it starts locking and unlocking the central locking is is not accepting the code. The difficult bit is getting it to recognise you are inputting the code. The central locking will do nothing during the code entry. Best doing this when the light is fading as its easier to see the display in the dashboard. Thats it, all you've got to do now is find the code. Often on a card inside the owners service books if still around!!
Good Luck John

How do you enable a range rover engine when key battery is flat


There is a sequence of left and right turns of the key in the driver's door that will reset your bECM (Rovers brain) if the following have been tried.
1. Replace batteries in remote and 're-sync by depressing lock button on remote while physically turning and locking the door. Don't release button until locked and key removed. Repeat for unlock button.
2. Disconnect negative/earth cable from battery. While disconnected open driver's door, turn ignition to position 2, return to battery leaving driver's door open and reconnect the negative cable. Proceed to ignition. Turn off completely. Close all doors and hood and attempt starting.
Should both of these methods fail, run a search here on fixya for "engine disabled Range Rover P38" This will take you to step by step instructions on resetting the bECM which I opened this post with. It has been covered many times here, including by myself, no reason to post it again.
Good Luck!

Touchscreen wont cut off when car is turned off.


It is normal for the screen to stay on for a short period of time after you turn off the engine and leave the car. It should shut off after a minute or so.

2000 range rover heater has been bypassed


Hi this is a quite common fault on landrovers. The correct solution is to perlace the heater matrix in the car, this involves removal of the dashboard. HOWEVER, in many cases it is possible to use a product such as Radweld or radseal. Its well worth a try for a couple of $. Reconect the heater pipes in put a pot of radseal in the expansion tanks, go for a drive and see if it leaks.
