You will need to reprogram the keyless remote
great. we are trying to do that but have not had luck so far. can you walk us through the process?
Do you have the one or two button remote?
Put the key in the lock turn it to the lock position then keeping it in that position press the lock button, then turn it to the unlock postion and press the unlock button while still keeping the key in the unlock position.Sometimes you have to do this a few times to get it to work.
Let me know how it goes
ok. we are trying it. so far nothing. do you have to hold down either side any length of time? we think turning right is locked position. do you know?
Resynchronization is accomplished by performing a key lock or unlock within 30 seconds of requesting a remote lock, superlock, or unlock. The BeCM senses the change in state of the "CDL" (Central Door Locking) switch in the driver's door to initiate resynchronization. This is what I found from the book so this has to work
I have done one before I was hitting the unlock and turned the key left right left right left right then it synced
3 times while hitting the button the whole time
hmmm. ok. we will try that.
ok standing by
ok. my father in law was trying to bring us the car. our direction to him has not worked. we are enroute to him now. it may take us a few minutes to get to the car for us to try this ourselves.
Ok just let me know
when you tried this you only held in the unlock button, not toggle back and forth between lock and unlock buttons?
Just the unlock
here's a code you can try. If it does not work Meanwhile: 1. Starting conditions: ignition off, doors unlocked, hood switch depressed. 2. Carry out instructions 3. to 9. within 8 seconds. 3. Switch ignition ON. 4. Switch ignition OFF. 5. Lock doors. 6. Unlock doors. 7. Release hood switch. 8. Switch ignition ON. 9. Switch ignition OFF. If alarm is correctly accessed, horn will sound and LED will light. It is now possible to program two handsets of correct frequency to vehicle alarm ECU. This must be carried out within two minutes. 10. Press and hold down button on first handset until dash LED flashes. 11. Repeat instruction 10. for second handset. 12. The LED will extinguish if both handsets have been programmed correctly.
ok. we will try that part. we did not understand what you said about needing to do this within 30 seconds of requesting a lock or unlock. does that mean we need to do the standard remote unlock attempt and then this procedure?
Try what I just sent to you
....our car is currently locked and we can not get into it. would this apply?
You are unable to get into the car at all?
correct. he was bringing it to us from the dealer, then made an errand stop. he locked the car and now it will not unlock.
So your completely locked out cant get into the truck or anything?
right. we are on vacation and our land rover broke down. we had it at the dealer getting a new fuel pump and borrowed our fathers car so we could vacation. he pickd up the car and was bringing it to us. for some reason it locked but now will now unlock. we presume it has to do with the fact that we got a new battery today....
The problem is the car should unlock I am wondering if the battery went dead or is not connected tight and will not allow power to the locks manually
So I assume the hood is closed and none of the doors will open manually with the key
Try all of them and the rear door as well
hmmm. we think he locked the car manually from the passenger side when he got out of the car. we are close to the location of the vehicle so we will try these things.
There is no programming to use the key but I know the locks are most likely vacuum or power activated
So if battery is dead or the connection was not tight and no power then it will not open the door
I am thinking of everything possible here I know how it is to be stranded on holiday weekend sucks
So I will do everything I can to help
thank you. you make a lot of sense. we will try as many of these as we can.. should be there in literal moments.
One more thing
THE ONLY ONE I SEE IS Unlock once lock 5 times, unlock once, and then lock 5 times.
The lockout can be 30 mins on US model
So you may have to wait 30 mins then do the above
KEY TOWARDS FRONT OF CAR IS LOCK AND RIGHT IS UNLOCK
Hope you got this ingo
let me know asap
so far nothing we are trying the later suggestion
You have to do what I just said
this was hard to find
Its probably locked out right now from the attempts before
trying earlier suggestion again but the last one confused us as to how to do it.
You see the link how you have to do it in sequence so after its not in lock down mode could be 10-30 mins not 100 sure in that you will do this in the lock cylinder drivers side
Unlock once lock 5 times, unlock once, and then lock 5 times.
thats the code
once to the left right 5 times once to the left then to the right 5 times again
This should work if its the right code
Like I said if its been locked can take 10-30 mins you will have to wait before you can enter this code
we tried it and nothing. could be locked from attempts but is there something we are to try like trying to unlock with remote before we do the code part?
No this is the only way you will be able to do it
ok. thank you. we have a locksmith coming too. maybe between your instructions and his knowledge we can get it
He probably wont be able to do anything with this vehicle
This is to keep people out its pretty good at it but the code I gave you should work its like the default code
I have also read Remove battery from keyfob, and press keyfob button for approx 10 seconds. This will exhaust all power from fob. Then fit battery's back into fob, and see if it will work.
This is a write up on the issue others have been there
You will probably have to wait 30 mins without touching it then enter the code I told you 1515 in sequence locksmith will have a hard time deactivating this system
So just set a timer wait out the 30 mins because everytime you try again the timer will start over and since you cannot disconnect the battery you have to wait it out
ok.. makes sense. thank you for your help. if we get in sounds like we will need to take it to the dealer....if/when we get back home to get some settings reestablished. thanks for your help
If for some reason this code does not work I am hoping it does you will have to get the one from your dealer is what i am told which tuesday is a long wait. But once it unlocks the key fobs are easy to activate
thank you very much. the locksmith just got us into the car yeah!!!! we will go to the dealer as soon as we are back in town. catheryn
