Cool thanks - it was mostly a curiosity, as I mentioned my fobs never worked and I only used the key, and plus my BeCM was "disarmed" and EKA was off as well. This might soon change ... :-)

I can concur with Martys' explanation. I find that, occasionally, I lock the car with the fob but when I return after a period [maybe 5 minutes, maybe an hour] the fob doesn't open the car again.

Then I have to unlock the car with the key, but immediately do the EKA reset or else I can't start the car. If I put the key into the ignition I get the message about pressing the button on the fob to reregister the key, but that doesn't usually work, and I have to get back out, close the door and reset the key in the door, and then everything is fine again for a couple of months. It doesn't particularly bother me because I know how to fix the problem when it happens.

My plan about modifying a LHD passenger side front door handle are currently on hold. Firstly, Rimmers tell me that I will be able to get a new RHD drivers' side front door handle with a new barrel, but I will just have to have a bit of patience. And secondly, despite Harv from Canada kindly giving me a LHD VIN [ and thanks to Leolito for your offer to do the same] I didn't get to order a LHD handle yet. It does appear that all the handles are order from JLR, and are not kept on the shelf by anyone.

Interestingly, it is quite easy to buy the RHD passenger front door handle, I bought one along with the two rear handles, but it seems quite difficult to buy a LHD passenger front door handle. Anyway I will wait a while in the hope that Rimmers come through with a new drivers' door handle.
