    Land Rover Alarm Fob

    I've an estate Defender, 2 years old Half county spec. With the key come an alarm fob. It's right royal pain in the eras!! Being on the same ring as the key I'm always pressing the "set" button unintentionally, the alarms goes off when you don't want it to leaving looking a right tit!! The other day I lost the rag with it, took the fob off the key ring, left the fob in the Land Rover, put my keys in my pocket and feeling a smug, went about things for the morning. Getting back, put the key in the ignition, turned the key, the engine turned over.......then died!! Again, the same thing, I set and unset the feckin alarm and it started no problem!! bugger!!! Is there any way around this? Or must I put up with them being carried together?

    Sounds like an alarm and immobilizer - but being a land rover, don't sweat it - it'll be broken shortly.
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Aye!!!! I wish it would break, 17500 miles and already had front hub, bushes and stealing Collum replaced! I never thought of an immobiliser, phoned and asked the garage if there was something I could do, no help!!!

    If you don't have the fob next to the steering column it will not start. It has a passive immobiliser around the ign. lock.
    Thats why it started ok after pressing the fob.
    Try using two key rings so the fob is lower than the key a little but still close enough to the ign. barrel.
