      Hi Rick,
      My CJB developed a fault following a key replacement carried out by an independent (ie not by Landrover). I brought it to Dakar in Swanley and they tried to reprogram it but we’re not able to. I’m now considering sending the CJB to Turners. It’s a 2005 discovery 3. I gather you know a lot about this issue m. Cheers michael

      Hi Rick. I have a problem with the immobiliser on my D2 Td5. Local specialist cant get his diagnostics to communicate with the bcu. How much would you charge to check/repair it please?

      Hello Rick, I'm having issues with EKA Lockout, I've got a new door lock, but not convinced that it's not the BECM unit, are you still refurbing them it's a 1999 4.6 Thor ?

      Hi rick, I'm after changing the ECU on my automatic discovery. The ECU on the car is NNN I have a spare td5 auto ecu but it's MSB am I right in thinking this won't work? Which ECU's can I use and what would happen if I tried the MSB? Cheers Jon

      Hi, I am after you expertise & help, I have a P38 (1998) 4L . I only got one Key when i purchased it 3 years ago. The key fob is somewhat on its last legs now and is held together with gaffa tape. Do you still do replacement/refurbished key fobs? I live near Blackburn in Lancashire, so popping down to Hove is a little to far. I hope you can help me rather than having to go through the local dealer and pay their £

      Hi Rick. I have seen a few posts and you seem to know about becm issues. I have a battery drain! Any ideas where i should be looking
    11. OBX97
      Hey there, having BECM chatter with wipers, radio and HEVAC working intermittently. Think it might be a BECM problem. Any way to verify if I remove it from the vehicle?

      Hi Rick,
      I spent a while on the phone with Mozz up Manchester way and he told me to get in touch with you about my keyfob issue.
      Is it best to call the Calllrova number in business hours to talk to you?

      Hi Rick,
      I just replied to your update on my post about my "Spurious errors" , but thought I would back it up with a PM as well.
      If you are able to test/repair my P38 Motronic BeCM, what's the process? Can you drop me a line as a PM or to my e-mail ID misterclarke@blueyonder.co.uk?

      Hello Rick

      I have also heard you are the bcu guru!
      I have no indicators, hazards, central locking, intermittent wiper or rear wiper and mileage flashing on a 1999 disco. Changed interior fuse box but no better.

      Could you help? Many Thanks Rob

      Hello Rick, I've been scanning the post of BCU issues and you seem the man to ask about them.

      Cutting a long story short I parked my Disco up a few months back and left it super locked and the battery went flat. The car would not start at all. A friend who has a Nanocom plugged it in and it could read all systems apart from the BCU. Could you please let me know if you could take a look at it.

      Many Thanks, James.

      Hi Rick - any advice on a decent remapper for my P38 diesel auto (1998 pre-egr)? I have Jeremy Fearn and Eric Turner on my list... The latter did my BeCM some years ago (or maybe you did?!) and despite mixed reviews, was quick and professional at resolving my problems. Wammers suggested I run the question past you.
