Dear Rangerovers net,
My name is Harald van Loon and I'm a new member. Since I was young I Always wanted to have a Range Rover.
Finally last year I had the opportunity to get a 2000 P38 (originally USA) and import it from England. It has been working fine till about a month ago.
You can guess: electrical problem with los of sync between fobs and car.
Car opens with key (no reaction of central locking), alarm stays on and when trying to start 'immobiliser, use remote key'.
It's had this problem before, but it reset after opening/closing the sunroof a vew times.
- EKA does not respond.
- I have the software from Story Wilson: EAS UnlockV4. However, it connects but cant find any faults. It can read the BECM configuration,but I can't write or change the settings.
Currently the car is in maintance with a guy who knows carelectrics. But, he is having a hard time to get around the alarm and into the BECM/ECU to bypass the immobilizer.
I have seen many posts like mine before, however I cant find a consequent answer on how to attack this problem, sort of a flow chart.
I found the sync-mate from Blackbox. Would this be a solution or waste of money in my case?
Many posts state the problem often originates from a faulty door latch, but how do I test that and how do I get the car running to get it fixed?
Can anyone please help me with information ? And is there someone in my region (Zenderen Netherlands) with a sync-mate so I can maybe test it?
I would be greatfull, Thanks!
Harald van Loon
