Smart Key not recognised

Had this message randomly come up on the dash when using my original smart key and dash message informed me that I needed to place it near the receiver (near left hand side of the steering column). Didn't make a jot of difference. So, resorted to using the spare smart key. That worked fine for a few weeks, until today when I had the same message with the second smart key Big Cry

So went back and tried the original smart key, dead as a dead thing that just died. Resolved by replacing batteries (CR2032) in both smart keys and now all good. The L322 used to warn me when the smart key battery was low and according to the L405 manual it should do the same.....but it didn't Sad

Car is MY18+ (latest shape) and the way around getting the car to start is to use the remote start app on the I-phone, as long as at least one of the smart keys still has enough battery power to open the car.

I was told by a very experienced LR Technician that the newer square 2018 onwards fob batteries last around 18 months on average, much less than the earlier fobs.

I too had the same experience as you yesterday on my 2019. Replaced the fob battery and everything is fine again. Keep a few CR2032’s in the cupboard and remember to replace them every year or so. MY19 4.4 SDV8 Vogue SE
