2017 Range Rover



The smart key may not be detected if it is inside a metal container, or is shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen, e.g., a smartphone. Keep the smart key clear of such devices when attempting passive entry, passive locking or push button starting.


Loose coins, in the same pocket as the smart key, can act as a shield and may affect its detection.


The vehicle does not lock automatically.


Passive locking activates only if the smart key is detected outside of the vehicle. If no smart key is present, no locking occurs.

To operate passive locking:

  1. Lock sensor area: To lock the vehicle, touch only the lock sensor once without gripping the door handle. The hazard warning lights flash once to confirm locking.


Do not grip the door handle while touching the sensor; doing so prevents the vehicle from locking.

When using passive locking, the vehicle does not lock when:

  • any door(s) is open.

  • the hood is open.

  • the tailgate is not fully closed.

  • the ignition is on.

No audible mislock error warning is given. The hazard warning lights do not flash and the power-fold mirrors, if enabled, do not fold in.

Make sure that the ignition is switched off, and that all of the doors, the hood and the tailgate are closed properly. Lock the vehicle again. If the mislock persists, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.
