Question p38 wont try to turn over. Immo?

Hi, really hope someone can help, my p38's battery was completely dead for about 5 days. I've put a new battery on and it wont start. the key remote works fine on all doors and manually in the drivers door. I turn the ignition on all as normal, message centre says usual window set msgs but no fault message or immobiliser msg. It wont try to turn over as if immobilised tried EKA but remote seems to operate ok. PLEASE HELP a Landyzone newbie.

Post Re: p38 wont try to turn over. Immo?

hi, the only click comes from a couple of relays nothing near the starter motor. ive looked at some of irishrovers old posts and it looks like the becm is not talking to the ecu. ie the becm is alarm locked or lost its handshake with the ecu. iether way it needs to plugged in to sort it. does this sound probable??

ps the 'check engine' ignition light does not light up. this apparently indicates the above problem.

thanks for your response.

pps its a 4.0 V8 Auto.

You need the "Check Engine" light on before you can start the engine. Either it's out of synch or more likely locked out.
