    Default Defender remote needs to be resynchronized.....please help

    So today, on a building site my remote suddenly just did not seem to work no more. I suspect one of my enlightened ones managed to drop it from the roof of a double story and possibly the battery popped out.

    So this is what Iíve tried so far:

    1. Installed new remote battery, got in the vehicle locked then switched on to pos1 ignition, unlocked open door, close door switch to pos2. Press both remote buttons, double beep but still the red engine with line through. Canít start

    2. Full reset, turn ignition to pos 2. Pres remote till double beep is heard. Disconnect main 12v battery for 5 min while key is still in pos 2, reconnect, no luck


    Then this:

    Hi Zapture

    Yes those soldered points tend to break. I resoldered mine before it could break. I think you should disconnect the 12v battery for a longer period so the alarm system can reset. It might just recognize the remote after the reset. Otherwise you can start the vehicle with the code. There is a sequence you do with a code.EKA code by turning the ignition as many times as the number of the digit of the 4 number code states. I should read up on this as I cant remember myself. Maybe someone else can explain?
    This might help

    Jip, took it to 4x4 Extreem. Done in 5 min flat. Interesting story: apparently you can only do the 2.8 BMW reprogramming with LR spec readers. If you use a generic you run into some serious trouble. According to the guys at 4x4 Extreme you break the link between the BMW and LR comms.
