    Fault Code P1668

    Had this code stored P1668.

    I googled it and it came back:

    P1668 = Anti-Theft Alarm serial link faultDrive cycle A:Signal out of range - above maximum

    Do I have anything to be worried about?

    Found this info on P1668 Fault Code:

    Failure to Start - "Passive Immobilization" Enabled

    AFFECTED VEHICLE RANGE:

    Discovery Series II (LT) All

    SITUATION:

    VEHICLE MAY NOT CRANK AFTER BEING UNLOCKED

    The customer may complain that occasionally the vehicle will not crank. This may be because the Non-NAS Passive Immobilization feature has been accidentally turned on in production or during repair operations.

    If Passive Immobilization is enabled, the vehicle will immobilize itself if the ignition key is not turned to position "II" or the engine is not started within 30 seconds of unlocking the vehicle. With the ignition key in position "II", the vehicle will show that it is in the immobilized state by illuminating the alarm LED continuously. The engine will not crank if the ignition key is turned in an attempt to start the engine.

    RESOLUTION:

    REPLACE BCU WITH NEW OR RE-PROGRAMMED UNIT

    To turn off the Passive Immobilization feature, replace the BCU with a new unit ensuring that the proper installation procedure is followed. Alternatively, after contacting the LRNA HelpLine send the original BCU to Land Rover to be re-programmed and install the re-programmed unit ensuring that the proper installation procedure is followed.

    PARTS INFORMATION:

    YWC000310 BCU

    WARRANTY CLAIMS:

    86.55.75 Time 0.50 hrs.
    Install new or re-programmed BCU

    FAULT CODE: A

    Normal warranty policy and procedures apply

    REPAIR PROCEDURE

    SYMPTOM VERIFICATION OF ACTIVATED PASSIVE IMMOBILIZATION

    1. Unlock the vehicle and wait one minute.

    2. With the ignition off, verify that the anti-theft alarm LED in the instrument pack blinks slowly.

    3. Turn the ignition key to position "II" and verify the alarm LED is on continuously. This indicates an immobilized condition.

    4. Check that Passive Immobilization is on by attempting to start the vehicle with the LED on continuously.

    5. If the vehicle does not start, confirm that Passive Immobilization is turned on as follows:

    ^ Turn off ignition and remove the key.

    ^ Press the unlock button on the plip once.

    ^ Attempt to restart the vehicle within 30 seconds.

    ^ If the vehicle starts normally, Passive Immobilization is activated. The BCU must be replaced or reprogrammed by Land Rover after contacting the LRNA HelpLine.



    TESTBOOK VERIFICATION OF ACTIVATED "PASSIVE IMMOBILIZATION"

    NOTE: The Bosch Engine Management ECU may flag a P1668 Fault Code if an attempt to start the vehicle is made when Passive Immobilization is activated. This will only be evident by interrogating the Bosch Engine Management ECU with TestBook. The fault will not turn on the Check Engine (MIL) lamp.

    1. Using TestBook, verify Passive Immobilization is enabled as follows:

    ^ Select Vehicle Configuration.

    ^ Select Dealer Configuration.

    ^ Select "CLASS" (Corporate Locking and Alarm Security Strategy).

    ^ Note the status of Passive Immobilization.


    2. If Passive Immobilization shows "Disabled" the setting is correct for North American vehicles and the no-start/no-crank condition has another cause.

    3. If Passive Immobilization shows "Enabled" the BCU must be replaced to provide the customer with the standard North American configuration. Two options are available:

    ^ Return BCU to Land Rover for reprogramming and install the reprogrammed BCU with proper menu selections.

    ^ Install a new BCU from parts inventory and install with proper menu selections as outlined in TIB 86/03/01/NAS.


    4. Call the Land Rover Technical HelpLine for approval before you replace a BCU or ship a BCU to Land Rover.


    OPTION 1: RE-PROGRAM EXISTING BCU TO TURN OFF PASSIVE IMMOBILIZATION

    NOTE: Because the "Passive Immobilization" is a security-related feature, there is no way to turn off this feature with TestBook. Land Rover has the ability to perform this function using special software. Land Rover will FedEx the BCU back to the retailer on the day received.

    1. Verify that the ignition switch is in the OFF position.

    CAUTION: The negative cable removal must be performed within 30 seconds of pressing the plip button.

    2. Perform the following steps within 30 seconds:

    ^ Press the unlock button on the plip.

    ^ Immediately remove the negative battery cable from the battery.


    3. Refer to the Workshop Manual and remove the BCU from the vehicle.

    4. Send the BCU via FedEx to Land Rover North America Inc. for reprogramming and return.

    5. Refer to the Workshop Manual and install the re-programmed BCU.


    OPTION 2: INSTALL NEW BCU TO TURN OFF PASSIVE IMMOBILIZATION

    CAUTION: When installing a new BCU, the default is "Passive Armed." Failing to follow the BCU installation/replacement process correctly could cause Passive Immobilization to be turned on again.

    1. Refer to the Workshop Manual and install a new BCU.

    2. Refer to TIB 86/03/01/NAS and follow the installation/replacement procedure carefully to ensure that the BCU is installed correctly and that "Passive" is turned OFF.

    Holy cow, I think someone stole it and he must be a computer programmer, cause he sent you a ton of paperwork to figure out.

    Now thinking about it - also while watching Top Gear - best show on the planet. Do a double lock on the drivers side with the key, and then a slow unlock. See if that resets it. It works on the D1.

    I'm not really having any problem with my truck, just that fault code was stored when I read the obdII today.

    I had the dealer program the locks so all the door locks wouldn't open on the click of the remote, only the drivers side (ladyz have to be careful ya know!)
