Asked by Aug 23, 2019 at 04:28 AM about the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

08 Range Rover sport 4.4 HSE .I had to get a new key so I ordered one off of eBay. then I had to carry my vehicle on a trailer to The Land Rover dealership an hour and a half away and they had to reprogram the key to the vehicle but it still wouldn't even turn over. I had never had a problem with it running.I had ran off the road it got some mud under the skid plate and ABS light came on and the transmission control module wasn't working. I ordered a new transmission control module I put another battery on the vehicle. I changed batteries and the key fob battery. hopefully I won't have to have it reprogrammed since I changed the battery but still it will not turn over. I took the gear shifter handle off and where the cup holders and the wood grain is in the middle, I pulled all that out to redo all the wood grain.I also had to take the shifter handle off now when I turn the key on and mash the brake it will not go out of neutral that hitting the emergency release switch by the shifter I don't know if I don't have the shifter in right or what. now when I turn the key, it will turn all the way to the crank position but the gear shifter does not want to go out of park unless I hit the emergency release switch then it will move but in neutral it will not turn over when I turn the key to try to crank it it just makes that beeping sound very . when I put the key in the vehicle and I'm getting a code of incorrect immobilizer key. what does this mean and where is the immobilizer key location and how do I get this fixed or what do I do? I'm a pretty good shade tree mechanic on normal vehicles but these Range rovers are a whole different story. my vehicle has been parked for about 6 months and I just bought it. It was a one owner, hadn't had any problems out of it .the only thing I ever had to do was put a starter on it but the code I'm getting now is incorrect immobilizer key. where is the immobilizer key located and what does this mean? Does it mean that my key is not programmed to my truck like the dealership said or is it something different that I can bypass? I just need my truck to turn over and crank so I can drive it. Like I say, I bought a new transmission control module and put it on it .I put a new brake light switch on it. That didn't help.does anybody have any idea of what I can do to correct this problem or what could be going on and why is it saying incorrect immobilizer key? I took the gear shifter handle off and now I have it back on there and when I put the key in it and turn the key on it starts beeping real fastand loud  do I not have the gear shift handle on right ? somebody please give me some information. I can't afford to carry it to the dealership and pay those prices . I've checked the fuses .I've checked basically about everything that I know to check but I don't know what the incorrect immobilizer key actually means .I've looked it up and it says a few different things on here. so somebody that knows what they're talking about and how I can fix this ?could you please give me some information? Thank you so much! I am in a big hurry cuz I'm stuck without a ride. so if somebody could take some time out of their schedule please try to help me I would greatly appreciate it. thank you so much for those of you that try. Thanks a lot
