2000 Range rover hseit..lock mechanism on the drivers door has failed

Resolved Question:

2000 Range Rover HSE

It would appear that the lock mechanism on the driver's door has failed, preventing the vehicle from starting (as if there was a security breach). First, is there a way to by-pass this sensor so that we can drive the vehicle to a repair location; second, what in your view is the cause and remedy for this problem; and third, can you recommend a skilled, affordable mechanic in the Missoula, MT vacinity?

Hello and welcome to JA!!!

I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

I would first suggest that you check the following:
- check for any blown fuses.
If no blown fuses are found, you may try removing the battery cable for a few minutes to reset the system.

If that as well does not work, then you may disable the immobilizer system, if you have the four digit security code, available on the security card (if available).....
I will post the info:

If all these do not work.......then you have to tow the vehicle.......the most probable cause is a stuck or broken door mechanism, simulating a door broken....thus the alarm system is immobilizing the vehicle.
