    Hi people's, hope i'm on the right thread here, It's an intermittent fault I seem to have. Sometimes the fob works the doors and the key starts the car then over times it doesn't. New battery in fob but still the same problem, I plugged Hawkeye in, but truth is I'm no good with it. Checked the security signal which was flashing between low and high strength. Don't know if I was on the right path checking that. Just wondering if its the fob or receiver or something else, cant understand why sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks for the advise. asked a local land rover specialist to set it up that way but instead he completely switched off the alarm and immobiliser. Obviously this is something he never did... how can i 'direct' him into doing it the proper way... ie alarm and immobilizer stays on, but can be deactivated from the key?

    What kind of ''specialist" is that then? :confused:

    the "Always disarm with key..." option is under the "Alarm disarm" settings... if he switched off the alarm/immobiliser it means he went into "Alarm" settings and disabed it with option "not fitted"

    On nanocom the "always disarm with key" option is simply "Always" near the "Alarm disarm" line and the others on that page should be Alarm - Fitted, Alarm option - Enabled (not like in the image)

    Hello,
    I know this is an old topic, but hoping someone can help.
    Normal problems of fobs working intermittently, and now not at all. I have bought a new remote receiver. However the one in my 99 D2 is a valeo unit with no earth on. Will the regular one work?
    Also I have set the passive arm to disabled but I still have to enter the EKA code? Is there another setting I have missed?

    Thanks Drew (fed up waiting in car parks)

    Thank you sierrafery. I had disabled passive immobiliser and alarm disarm to always, but it was still active? I have set alarm to not fitted, I can now start it without having to input the Eka everytime. That will at least let me use it until I source the correct reciever.
    Thanks again Drew

    Hey guys. Please be gentle, I recently acquired a disco 2 and it recently started giving electrical faults and dash warning lights. Took it a supposed landy specialist in south devon and he screwed up more than he fixed. Its a 1999 disco 2, what is the best diagnostic tool to use with it and how easy is it to trace and repair faults?
