    I absolutely hate my freelander. I also have a drivers door problem and have been told that a replacement lock is necessary. I used the key for about six months and that has packed up as well so my suggestion is don't rely on the key for too long. This must be the worst 4 wheeled vehicle that has ever been produced anywhere in the world and it's British! I've had it since new and can't afford any thing else but if I sold it I'd probably get done for selling rubish.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Try spraying wd40 on the door lock mechanism inside the door shell. It may just be a little stuck and lubrication can help.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    I spoke to a mechanic friend about the very same problem i have. He's a 4x4 specailsit - as soon as i started to describe the fault, he has said its the locking mechanism. apparently they're electronically controlled and require a new component. £100 plus fitting. Worth it just to stop the faffing around first thing in the morning when its pitch-dark!! Hope this helps you

Freelander TD4 central locking works on key but not remote fob


Hi
It sounds like your battery has gone in the key fob otherwise your fob needs reprogramming to your vehicle and I'm sure you can do this through your drivers door lock by doing a sequence with the key it might be worth googling it ! Hope this helps

Hi ,, I need to know if my alarm is turned of or if the module is bad in my land rover freelander. can some one tell me where i can find it


The Haynes manual says the following:-
The central contol unit (CCU) is located in the back of the fusebox below the driver's side fascia. If a fault develops you have to use a LR delaer to use the diagnostics. The unit controls the anti-theft, windscreen wipers, courtesy lamp delay, door opening warning lamp, key-in alarm,rear foglights, light-on alarm, seat belt warning, handbrake warning, rear screen wiper, tailaget window and many others.
Section 12.20 has a whole section on the alarm. The key fob alarm handset contains a transponder which talks to a reader in the ignition switch. So the immobiliser will cut in if the ignition key and the key fob are not on the same key ring.
