I have the exact same car, I have a black 2008 Land Rover R2 and my anti theft alarm goes off randomly all the time and when I try to start y car sometimes the steering wheel locks up and so do my breaks so I can't drive it and the battery light and engine light come on

Took battery off to try and reset it but still doing the same thing. I was told by LandRover of Dallas to bring in so they could reset it with software!!Also wireless remote battery need to be checked. I hope to know more today.


what I'm afraid of is being out of alot money for nothing because once they reset it, it might happen again. LandRover need to recall this problem or send all owners the software to reset themselves!! Everyone need to call LandRover out of this problem. This is not good when our SVU is sitting up because of something the engieering need team need to correct asap!


Hello . The solution is simple 1. You buy obd2 Bluetooth. And download Dr. auto obd program .waluloj via mobile then will not show you any mistakes just wipe then the engine operation will work. I have tried and succeeded. Thank you


This happens with my 2008 Land Rover LR2 every so often, and my son found a trick to lock and unlock it. Usually, he pulled up on both front window buttons, simultaneously pushed the key in, and it would unlock or lock the steering to start by pressing the ignition. We did this several times, and it worked! Suddenly, TODAY, it won't work. Last time I followed what I read by disconnected the battery, pulled every main fuse, and then proceeded to the, "trick." We're in the process of doing the same thing now, in the order we did last time; disconnect battery, fuses, window button / push key in / start ignition, and test a few times to make sure this works. Will keep you posted. Nonetheless, when I complained to my mechanic, he said that it may be the key. The key is said to cost about 400-500. I hate this car. Just an FYI, but I reeeeally love the way it drives. Ugh
