Hello everyone! I am a new owner (under 1k miles so far). I am still figuring things out with the car. The one thing that I can't seem to figure out is how to use the keyless lock feature. I can't seem to get it to work. I've tried to do this on the driver door and the passenger side door. I've even held the key in my hand closer to the car while I TAP the handle. Still nothing. Any suggestions???

I've touched the handle where the 2 ridges are and it requires some steady pressure for a couple of seconds. It also doesn't work immediately after you close the door, wait a couple of seconds. It works most of the time for me, but not always.

I second what Evocurious said, hold your thumb over the two ridges like you're pushing a button almost. Also, if your tail gate is still closing, you will have to wait until that fully closes and latches.

Make sure your key is not next to your cellphone, I discovered that it blocks the key signal and I managed to lock myself out of the car during a vacation

I have tried all of that and I still can't get it to work. I'm starting to think the dealer lied and it is not actually equipped with it. Any suggestions?

If you are able to unlock/open the car just by pulling on the handle, then it is indeed equipped. Make certain that you are not gripping the handle, but just pressing on the 2 horizontal ridges with your thumb. Also, all doors and the boot need to be closed before it will work. Also as mentioned, you need to have your key on you, and it cannot be shielded by a cell phone or too much change. Also, make sure that your 2nd key is not in the car anywhere.

Take it to the dealer and have them run a report on the code and send it to Land Rover. I was having several electrical issues and they were able to send a data file and it showed there were malfunctions in the distance my car would unlock from and the back tailgate. Land Rover re-installed the files after they showed it was corrupted.

Make sure your hood is not indicated red as being "open". If any door is percieved as adjar it will not lock. Includes hood (bonnet.
