Universal locking

I tried everything on my 2008 and can't get this to work any ideas?

Just tried it on my 2008 XS, worked a treat Thumbs Up

Maybe you need a software update one some of the modules (BCM probably?)

Ideally you need a decent diagnostic tool that's able to read all the cars modules, also useful for checking and resetting fault codes, or perhaps you need to find someone locally who has one and is willing to help.

I have a Nanocom Evo (from Blackbox solutions) that I bought when I had my Disco 3, I've subsequently added the licences for My Td5 Defender and now for the Freelander too, It's a really useful piece of kit to carry in the glovebox even if it doesn't get used too often. :thumbs:

O f course it goes without saying "there are other brands available" but I can't comment on those as I've not used them.

Not possible, one 3 second push will single lock doors and close windows but have to click again for double lock. The sunroof is completely independent and has to be closed beforehand.


You can have the car programmed to include the sunroof in the 3 second push opening or closing setting. I did this on my 2008 HSE and works fine.

Holding down the unlock button for 3 seconds opens all windows and the sunroof, too. Nice to get the heat out of the car quickly. Same for locking the car, just hold down the lock button for 3 seconds and all windows and sunroof are closed.

I've just bought a 2007 HSE here in France. Came with two key fobs, one which works as it should and the other which has a problem with opening the vehicle: it only opens the doors(s) with the windows descending at the same time. Can't seem to do it without the windows coming down. I've tried charging the fob up during a long trip up to Belgium but still no change...

Any ideas.

From what you describe it seems the "open" button sticks down when pressed.

Yes, it does seem that way. Guess I can live with it as the fob works fine for starting the car, just a pain when unlocking. Only dead fish go with the flow

I guess the microswitch is sticking. You could carefully split the case to gain access to "exercise" it. Do a search for key fob battery replacement on here for info on splitting the case. It is either that or a new fob - Crying or Very sad 10MY (Sept 09) TD4 HSE Auto in Stornoway Grey - HEL braided brake lines, LR side steps,"Facelift" front bumper & tail lights.

I agree with the switch sticking diagnosis. I had the same with one of my keyfobs, it didn't work at all when I got it due to some kind of liquid ingress and a flat battery. I cleaned it up and replaced the battery but had the same effect as Gapster. I replaced the switch with one from a faulty Disco 3 keyfob I'd kept from ages ago and voila - 2 fully functional fobs Thumbs Up

Thanks so much for posting this!

The dealer said the FL2 had to be plugged in to reprogram the locking mode. I was waiting until the next service. Cost me 25 to get it switched on my old FL1.


Not only possible to change with the fob, but also from the instrument cluster options.
