Question about Land Rover LR3
Sounds like a short somewhere is causing the anti-theft system to arm .
Have you tried locking the doors manually then unlocking with the key? Other easy option could be to try a hard reset by pulling the battery terminal off for a few minutes.
If that doesnt do it you´ll most probably have got an electrical issue that needs to be traced at an authorized dealer.

Please ask her to verify few things.
If it is a petrol landrover it needs 3 things, fuel, compression, spark. Not starting will be one of these missing so need to check that each is present starting with the easiest first - fuel and spark.. the absence of one of these is specific to the model of landrover so too long to go into here. The answer can go on in that you may have all three but the fuel air mixture is wrong or the spark occurs at the wrong time. but the above 3 are always a start point. A diesel requires fuel and compression but again the latter part of the petrol answer also applies.
If it is a crank, no start, we have to determine what's missing when it dies, fuel or spark. What you can do spray some carburetor cleaner into the intake while someone tries to start it. If it runs then you know you have a fuel problem. Probably a fuel pump.
If it doesn't fire, take an old spark plug and plug one of the ignition wires into it and lay it on a metal part of the engine. Crank it over and if there is no spark, you have an ignition problem. Maybe a bad ignition coil or ignition module.
In the event it is a no crank we need to see if there is power getting to the starter. With a test light check for power at the small terminal on the starter. The test light should light when the key is in the START position. If not then you probably have a bad Neutral Safety Switch or ignition switch.

This is an alarm fault. Aftermarket or factory installed. The brain is defective. Usually after hitting a pothole or speedbump this condition occurs.
There is no fix but to have the alarm module replaced at a dealership.
Thanks for using FixYa.
