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!

Engine will not crank over when vehicle sets for extended period of time (5-6 hours), but will start when jumpers are hooked directly to starter? *already installed 694 cranking amp battery and grounded...


If battery is new, and altenator test good which would mean your battery is getting charged, then check the igntion wire that goes to the solenoid. They can get loose, broken, or dirty connections.
Check your battery cable connections on battery and on starter and ground to make sure they are very clean as well as tight.

Radio is asking for a code


Look in your owner's manual. It should explain how to enter the code and tell you where to find it. It should be in the manual but perhaps not. Hope this helps.

If battery is 3 years old in GMC Yukon XL would it slowly go dead by dying quickly if doors are left open, etc.? Or is that sign of bad alternator?


if doors left open for an extended period of time interior lights will kill battery have battery tested sum auto stores can do a load test and condition check of battery while in car sum do it for free most auto stores can test alternator also but most will bench test(with alt out of vehicle)

Battery dies after doors are left open


Hello, you are wantng to know if you have the right size battery for your vehicle. It sounds as if your battery may not have enough cold crank amps in it to support your vehicle, or either the battery you have has a bad cell. Your local auto supply store should be able to help determine if the battery is bad. It may also have just a surface charge and need to be charged on a trickle charger overnight or either there may be a parasitic draw on your battery beside the lights, but before going through a bunch of different test check your battery condition, then manufacturer specs, then battery cranking amps to manufacturer specs. I would say about a 800 cca battery at least.

1996 4.0 Range Rover won't unlock


This car is in super lock mode... when you press remote 2times to lock or when you lock with remote and try to unlock using key manually.

there is a 4 digit number to open the door, its like opening a safe, starting from the left(key in car door) it goes L/R/L/R. so if number code is 1234..... left 1, right 2, left 3, right 4.

or if this too troublesome you can ask landrover dealer to remove the KEYCODE.

happy trying.....
