    Well, I did not need to write all this , LOL

    Good news.

    Now is your EKA code and key code in the owners manual?

    Having thought about this,

    Discool makes a good point. That the lock could be jammed due to lack of use. Maybe a good dose of WD40 / plus gas or similar and leaving for a few hours / overnight willl help.

    You need to get hold of your EKA, as without that you are not going to be able to use the door lock to overcome the immobiliser.

    If the door lock does not work, after a good dousing of release agent, then I can only think smashing the cheapest and easist to replace window that you can get through and get your owners manual. You will want to have at hand the kit ready to disconnect the battery as it will get noisy.
    Hopefully the owners manual has your EKA code and the key code in it.
    If it does, then get a new key cut, hoping the locks have not been changed, use key to enter EKA code.
    I do not see any way around it at the moment.

    Cheers and Good luck.

    It's highly unlikely that the EKA code is in your owners handbook, unless a previous owner has written it in there. All the security information was provided by LR to the first owner on a small card about the size of a credit card. So it's the first thing to go missing.
    You'll be able to get all the necessary information from your nearest LR main dealer free of charge. They will require proof of ownership; the V5 document. They might also have the original reference for cutting the key to fit the door lock.

    Sometimes in the morning on my
    d2 td5 using the remote control to open the doors nothing happens red light still flashing so I unlock the drivers door. The central locking works and the doors unlock I have opened the door at 4 am good job I've no neighbours near me and the alarm goes off. And the next time it happened after the central locking opened it I pressed the unlock on the remote and the alarm and turned. This happens for a few days in a row then nothing for a few weeks or months then again for few day's. And doesnt do it on a cold or wet day etc.

    Had a look in the owners handbook and to my surprise the card with the security codes were there
    All I need to do now is sort out the drivers door look in case it happens again
