Tip & How-To about Land Rover Cars & Trucks

Landy's are expensive models.

Land Rover is a very finicky vehicle, with its ever changing technology. Therefore maintenance should be done regularly and keep service records up to date. With electronics produced at mass production, It is therefore wise to rather replace than to repair the faulty item. Land Rover is a gentle vehicle not to be driven like a wild cat whose tail is on fire. She is one that when looked after, she will look after you.

Changed my bcm in my 2000 land rover discovery. Now it doesn't want to start and the mileage light is blinking. What do I need to do?


Dont have a definitive answer for you as the generality of it is along the lines of presenting a cup of ocean water and asking from which tributary around the world it came. I will attempt to answer it based upon pure speculation. Hope it helps...
What you are referring to is actually the BeCM or Body electrical Control Module. This module controls power to, grounding of, signals of operation to/from, and diagnostic info for every component in the vehicle which relies on power to function. Everything. It is the brain of all that is power in your rover. Nothing less than amazing actually, this unit is performing hundreds of operations at any given moment you are driving and even when your car is garaged and keys in your pocket. Each Land Rover is fitted to your vehicle, synchronized, and coded at the factory for your specific vehicle. While many systems are generic in nature there are systems such as perimeter alarm sensors and engine immobiliser which have unique security codes paired to the BeCM. Replacement of the unit can be done but it is not "plug & play" so if you or your shop performed the installation it was not completed in that the unit must be paired with the numerous sub-control modules by way of recoding. This function can only be done with the Land Rover proprietary diagnostic system called TestBook. A very few independants have this technology as its expense, around $30K keeps it out of reach and maintains the umbilical cord to your local dealers service dept.
It sounds to me like your BeCM went to work after install and sent proper signals out to various components however as the diagnostic data flowed back in it was received as encrypted garble. As the unit scrambled to interpret and process data it simply became scatter brained.
I beleive that the sync requires your Discivery be on site to perform, however you may check with a reputable Rover dedicated online supplier such as Roverland parts and ask them.
As to your Rover dealer, there must have been some level of communication breakdown because i cant imagine them not knowing the process or attempting to sell you a BeCM you didnt need.
Best of luck, sorry its not a quick fix answer. Feel free to repost any additional info or message my box directly and i will do my best to catch it and assist further.

Wanted to get an estimate on the cost to maintain a 2003 Land Rover Freelander?


I have friends running Freelanders. Some have spent virtually nothing on repairs and others have spent a fortune. Very hard vehicle to call. Look at Edmunds reviews perhaps. Is the previous owner available to recount his/her experiences? Some people (not a lot but Land Rover owners more than most) keep records of such things.

When will I know if my RR Sport is due for maintenance service ? I've owned it now for 8 months and have driven it for roughly 4k miles?


the service light will only come on at 12500 miles after it was reset last time or due 12 month after its last service check your service record book if you have one the date should be shown there .
