Angry Discovery II Immobiliser Reset:

First time user of this forum, looking for some help

I have a Series II Discovery V8, left it on the drive for acouple of weeks and on return the central locking using the remote key fobwould not work.

Assumed it is a dead battery so removed the battery and rechargedit, but no Joy. All it does is when the key is in switch position II all the displaylights are lit and a alternating tone sounder bleeps for about 20 seconds (the sametone as when the hill decent button is pushed in) but the starter does not turn.

Have tried to use the EKA code to manually reset the immobilizer but the instruction says I am suppose to unlock using the key andhold the key in the unlock position for about 5s or until the alarm sounds asingle beep. Well when I do this the alarm does not sound even if I hold it fora minute. Needles to say if I go through the process of keying in the EKA codenothing happens.

Ironically, had the green flag out and whilst I was lookingfor the BL**DY code he had started the car but a day later the same thinghappened. All the man from green flag would tell me was that it started byitself.

Any advice is gratefully received

Have you tried a replacement battery in the key? Or, open the door with the key, then press the unlock button on the key, this sometimes resets the system - always works on mine after frosty weather when the button on the key fails to work.

Thanks for posting your thought Mantamad. Yes I have unlocked the door using the key and I have also used the spare key that has a new battery to unlock but no joy. Just this nagging tone which last about 20 seconds and nothing else.

Apparently, if you put the key and turn into switch position 2, the BCU and the ECU suppose to recognise each other but no joy in this case.

Alongside the trip meter on the LCD there is flashing symbol like the figure 8 with a diagonal cross on it. does anyone know what this may be. It has appeared ever since the problem.

Hi there,

Just wondering if you ever got to the bottom of your immobiliser mystery, mine has started doing exactly the same thing and the mechanic thinks its a broken wire (expensive!) so any help I can give him would be a bonus saving to my wallet!

thanks,

Grant

If the audible noise you hear is 6 bongs and your central locking doesn't work from the inside switch plus your indicators aren't working, its probably water in your grey fuse panel under your steering wheel, have a look at : Land Rover V8 Discovery Faults
It has some photos of the water damage and what to look for.
