hello mozz smith - you are my last best hope - 2001 4.6 P38 in lock out - have tried to enter EKA code but red light keeps flashing and alarm goes off if i turn on ignition after - I am open to all suggestions - I did allow battery to go flat but is now fully charged of course key no longer work and need to be resync - if you can help my wife makes a good Carrot cake that travels well !!
hello mozz smith, it sounds like you are the man that can help me with my Lock out problem. i have delivered my 1998 p38 dse to a workshop to change the transmission. now the transmission is changed but the car dont start anymore.
the workshop that i have delivered the car to is working much with land rover and i see they do a lot of them. but he can`t start the car anymore do to the code lockout. i must say that the car had a bad battery and to make it worse the Lock from the driver door was broken.
to open the car you had to use the radiocontrol from the key. the Central Lock is not working either. I told him that the battery is not the newes one and that the key is not working to open the car, but i dont think he was listening. anyhow, now after he changed the transmission he can`t start the car anymore.
he was now fixing the Lock on the car and loading the battery full again. he said that he was trying to punsh in the code with the key but the car just goes in to the code lockout mode. he told me that he was doing everything like always(i dont really know what that means) but that it is not working.
Hi Mozz - key fob sync problems with my p38 /98/diesel. Have tried all methods, but no luck so far. Your lock/unlock method and then into ignition position 2 - I get continuous flashing led on fob. How long should you have to wait? Have tied up to three minutes... Anyway - your advice gladly accepted. Paul Close
Hi mozz I've got a 4.6 p38 and battery has got flat and need to resynk the key and can't remember how to do it lol I've heard your man who know lots about the p38 would be grateful of your help thanks mate
Good morning Mozz. Just another Query. When the car started yesterday the air suspension was doing a strange dance up and down at the corners. Is this related to locks in any way? Also forgot to mention that even though remote c/l disconnected locks still sometimes cycle when driving or sat in a car park??
Well here we go. My son came around to refit blue wire to r f receiver. I put key in drivers door lock and turned to unlock position so he could get in the boot to do the job, and ALL doors unlocked . Put key in ignition and she started!!! Anyway he refitted blue wire. So is it the door lock assembly that's at fault I wonder? i.e. micro switches.
Hello mozz. Just remembered the blue arial wire is disconnected from r f receiver. This was done a couple of months ago to try and cut down on spurious signal interference. I see in your e-mail it needs to be connected. Will get my son to reconnect tonight then will call you tomorrow. Thanks. Allan.
Hello Mozz Smith. I would be grateful for your ideas on my 1996 P38 2.5 dse auto. As outlined in my earlier posts regarding my P38 and it stranding me with engine immobilised condition. The MOT garage said they had disabled the immobiliser with their scanner and this also disabled the remote central locking. Not bothered about c/l as have been using key in the door lock without problems until today.
