ADDITIONAL security was provided with the latest Freelander upgrade in the form of a more sophisticated engine immobiliser, which is now separate from the locking and (standard) alarm setting system. A remote keypad or the key itself can be used to operate the various options of locking, deadlocking and alarm setting. The immobiliser inhibits both the starter and fuel injection and is controlled by a combination of password and rolling-code communications between a transponder in the key and an antenna ring around the ignition key slot. The "perimetric" sensing of the alarm extends to the targa roof panels on the three-door. The underfloor storage compartment in the cargo area can be locked for additional security when the roof is off, while the hardback itself provides better security than the soft-top.
