1. A method in a wireless device for handling access to a radio base station in a wireless communication network, comprisinginitiating a lower-layer random access procedure, in the wireless communication network, while one or more timers associated with a Radio Resource Control (RRC) layer procedure are running;
determining, at the RRC layer and subsequent to a first plurality of random access preamble transmission attempts, that a problem with the random access procedure has occurred based on receiving an indication of the problem from the lower layer; and
responsive to determining that the problem occurred,
aborting from the RRC layer the random access procedure immediately and declaring a radio link failure, at the RRC layer, without taking into account the one or more running timers associated with the RRC-layer procedure.
