Prob your RF reciver. Change it for about £130 ish. Make sure your access code works before the change to avoid confusion. Use part YWY 500 170 only.
If you can't get the £££ unplug the RF reciver (behind rear NS passenger seat) and use the key manualy. Good luck.

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.
I have the same problem sometimes
1 Check the condition of your battery, if old, it will not give full power required to communicate with the security system.
2 If you don't have the EKA of your RR, try this next time you get caught, put key in the drivers door look, press unlock button on key fob and at the same time turn to unlock, if all locks unlock then the engine should not be immobilized - Good luck
Some one brought his vehicle to me the other day with same problem. What i did was connected the battery and got inside locked the doors and removed the main fuse. This reseted the ordeal somehow. When i got outside i locked the door again and that was that. No alarm. How ever, i did install a new battery to the handset and tried again without any problems. Hope this helps.
Most likely a failing or about to fail lock actuator. Hopefully on the drivers door but probably the front passenger. There are no servicable parts of the actuator so the entire assembly must be replaced. Access to the inner door outstation and actuator is simple for someone with some experience with interior panels. For a first timer its not impossible and is do-able if you are patient. Many hidden clips and fasteners can make it a frustrating job. In the interim if you cant get it into the shop or work on it right away you can disconnect this lock actuator which will stop the random gremlin from raising and lowering the locks. The lock must be engaged then from inside the vehicle manually if any other than the drivers door, the only one locked and unlocked by mechanical means with the key. Hope this helps. good luck.

1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open. 2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock
Unfortunately, there is a trick to replacing the battery.
1) Open the Driver side door.
2) Open the Bonnet and take the battery cover off.
3) Use your remote to lock and unlock the car (keeping the driver side door open)
4) Pull the Negative Lead from the battery first, followed by the Positive Lead.
5) Change or replace with charged battery.
6) Closed down Bonnet.
7) Your windows, sunroof, and key FOB will not work... so follow the next steps.
7a) Insert your key, with door closed into the exterior lock on driver's side.
7b) While turning the key to lock the door, hold down the "lock" button on your remote for 5 seconds while in "lick" position
7c) Your remote will reset, and you should be able to use your remote now
7d) While driving, roll each window down twice. On your third attempt, you should only have to touch the window button, and the window will have reset
turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.
