So i phoned Graeme Cooper Automotive (LR specialist in Sydney) yesterday as they had a few stamps in the logbook of the 97 Autobiography i bought a few months back so i could check up on what had been done to my Rangey. Good and bad, a new top hat liner engine was put in in Feb 09 total invoice $9k ( how goods that!) and it was done at 182000kms. with a service 2k later, then a service in Feb 10 at 194k. Only thing is, my odometer is showing 144000k?! Same VIN. Build date Mar 97. However when i hook my Faultmate up the build date on the BECM is 30/12/97. I thought, and im after a correction now, that the BECM, GEMS and instrument cluster all stored the odo reading and the highest was used?

Im not that bothered about the K's, with a new radiator and top hat lined engine in fact im real happy! I just want to know how the hell they changed the K's!

Hi

I have seen the same thing here. They take a becm and odo meter unit from a donor car and reprogram the becm to the existing vin. After installation the milage from the donor car will be displayed. The GEMS unit does not store the milage, but need to be set to learning mode to communicate with the BECM and accept the alarm codes.

Regards

Jos

Ok, so if I'm to understand correctly, my key would not be the original? The keys are programmed to the becm aren't they?

Key codes can be trasferred from one BeCM to another.
