    After reading lots of threads about various alarm/immobiliser issues i have a recommendation ... when ever and no matter for what reason you plug in a tester, beside the main reason for what you've got there, enter in the BCU menu too and set the alarm on "always disarm with key" mode. This setting will help you to unlock the car with the key in case of fob/receiver failure without triggering the alarm... the fobs used to fail to unlock/disarm the alarm quite often from various reasons and if it's not set this way there is the risk to stay near an immobilised car or be recovered for serious money untill the problem will be fixed. Though EKA code will still be needed if the passive immobilisation is not disabled and the fob doesnt comunicate with the receiver so to be able to remobilise it only with the key without using the EKA code the passive immobiliser must be disabled in the BCU as well .... it's a matter of choice though ;)

    To clarify, if this option is set then you can't use the remote fob to unlock the Landy? Thanks.

    no, you can use the remothe either way and when ever you want... this setting will let you disable the alarm with key if the remote fails without neding the EKA.... otherwise the alarm/immobiliser will be triggered if you unlock with key and open the door

    the should have named it "always disarm with key TOO":)

    I've graciously been lent a nanocom for a couple of days, so I'll have a look through its BCU option to see if I can activate this :cool:

    Got myself a nanocom a few weeks ago and this was the first thing I did.
    (after immobiliser problems due to interference, scared the sh*t out of the old lady next door every time the alarm went off, trying to get in and start the car :D)

    my problem is slightly different
    fob stops working after heavy rain and whenever i use the key to unlock the car, hazard lights start flashing as i open any of the doors. however, i can start the engine but can not stop hazard lights at all.
    tried to enter EKA code couple of times but that didnt help neither
    any idea :( ?
