Mayotte‘s chief export is ylang-ylang, and Land Rover’s have notoriously poor ground connections. So in reading when I come across a reference to “ground” it’s a safe bet that is your problem. You should fix that first. If it doesn’t fix the problem, it’s probably a component at that point. So how to fix the ground? I have not identified the location of all the components of the locking system. So until I do I am probably on the two step procedure to lock my truck.
