1997 Land Rover Discovery SE 4.0L (2) 4-spd (4HP-22) — SALJY1246VA703714
No Crank
Alarm

I have this Discovery Series 1 that was purchased last week with no remotes. Not long after he purchased it, he accidentally armed the alarm by holding the key in the lock position too long. I have done my research, and I need to know if any of you can access the eka code for this, or can refer me to a dealership that even knows what that is. I called my Land Rover dealer, and nobody there knew what I was talking about. 

For those that don't know, the only way to disarm the alarm on these without the remote, is to either have the original scan tool from Land Rover, which the dealership claims they don't have, or enter a code in the door lock, using the key. Once the alarm is disabled, a new remote can be programmed relatively easily from what Mitchell states.

Most older auto locksmiths can help you out if they have an Advanced Diagnostics programmer... Even the chinese boxes have that function in them... I would call around. I don't know where cornville is, but in or near phoenix there are a few guys with the older AD boxes.. also, if you find a used remote and reshell it, here is the link to generate the code needed for…

This is for a series2. A totally different system. Still very good info, just not for this vehicle.

FYI, the Advanced Diagnostics MVP Pro, which I have only supports the Discovery III, and other models, not the Discovery I, or II. I just plugged mine in, and tried it.

As usual there are variations with security on Land Rover, the NAS owners manual says lock/unlock with key should activate/deactivate alarm/immo, holding in lock position for 5 secs will lock without activation. UK owners manual says you can lock/unlock with key but must use remote to deactivate alarm/immo. No mention of EKA in the NAS manual but is mentioned in the UK version. Some scan tools…

Sean, The security on this vehicle can be bypassed. Google security spider bypass. Not sure if the Fob will work afterwards though.

Learn something new everyday... I have never seen a 1997 that wasn't type 2 here in the US... But you are dead right... Thank goodness I haven't had the fun of seeing one of these..

I looked into it, and the spider box is only in 1996 models. "All models with central locking and immobiliser up to (VIN) VA534103" This one has a newer vin, and that is all built into the security system, and it would appear that if I eliminate that box so that it will start, the door locks will not work at all.

Sean, You can disable anti theft with the key in the drivers door just like you can enable it. If it won't disable antitheft there is something wrong with the micro switch in the door or the circuit to the alarm ecu. Google " Rave 2 Disc " and download it. It is the last published factory service information on Rovers until 2002. You will have to find vintage adobe reader from around 2005 or…

Thanks. I tried that one several times, but I found out from someone who knows these systems that all locks must be functional for that to work, and there's 2 locks that don't work, so I bypassed this system, which was far easier than I imagined.

I finally got through to a service manager who has been with Rover for over 30 years, and he's the only one that remembers these security systems. There is no EKA in their computer system, and he doesn't remember one. He remembers a sequence of lock, unlock, lock on the driver's door to disarm, but all locks must be working, and all switches must indicate closed. The passenger door, and rear…
