from listening to other Land Rover owners this type of thing is very common , the quickest thing to try is to press the lock button on the fob four times , this should resync the fob and alarm/immob and ignition,if no better then i'm afraid a visit to a mechanic with some landrover experience would be my advise
2) If it has the Factory Security, and you cannot Disarm by Remote or Turning Door Key Lock to the Unlock Position:
Disconnect the Positive Battery Cable. Open the Drivers Door & Leave Open. Turn Ignition Switch to ON Position (run) Reconnect Positive Battery Cable. Horn may sound for a few seconds. Start Vehicle. Good luck!
The red light means the Immobiliser has not been turned off, the deactivator in the key must not be working correctly, visit your local land rover dealer who will be able to make sure the key is paired to the car correctly, otherwise you may need a new key.
If the EKA code contains a 0, then you have a problem that should never have got to you - the dealer should have spotted the duff EKA and changed it! I have no idea how you'd get it back from such a state, other than programming a new BCU to the engine ECU, and then new keyfobs to that BCU. This is assuming the 0 isn't just a mis-print or an 8 ? Best to get the dealer on this. (In order to access security you have to insert the key and turn to position I and I don't think the system would let you in until it was disarmed)
before you cut or rewire the alarm, when welding the disco although disconecting the battery protects the battery, the imobiliser holds current, this my have gone into system factory setting, so it my be worth getting the imob and key re-conected, this is a cheap job at any Landrover specialist. hope your running smooth soon
