Question about 2003 Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

Won't start Drove our Freelander 2 minutes down the road on Friday. Came back to the car after 30 mins and found it won't start. When you turn the key you can hear it turning over, but it won't fire. Everything seems fine under the bonnet. Think of any reason why it's won't fire? Never had a problem with it before.

Grab a spark plug, any spark plug even a spare for your lawn mower, and plug it into any spark plug wire, and lay it on the valve cover. Crank it over and have somebody verify rather or not there is spark, obviously you don't want to hang on to the plug or wire. After spark is or isn't there get back to me and we'll continue to trouble shoot.

This is almost for sure the fuel relay. I do not know where it is on your car but I would look for it to be by one of the back wheels where road junk can get to it and corrode it. Once found not very expensive and very easy to replace.

2007 dodge ram 1500 5.7 won't start. Key turns but won't start the truck. The security system is preventing it from starting. How do you reset the key?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Normally you WILL HAVE THE RESET PROCEDURES IN THE OWNERS MANUAL BUT IF NOT PLEASE TRY THIS pull the positive battery off the post and leave it off for 10 min then reattach it AND ATTEMPT TO START THE VEHICAL IF IT STARTS GREAT HOWEVER IF NOT TRY THIS
turn the key to on DO NOT START THOUGH LEAVE IT THERE FOR 3 MIN THEN TURN THE KEY TO OFF FOR 30 SEC THEN BACK TO THE ON FOR 3 MIN AGAIN THEN REPEAT THIS STEP 1 MORE TIME THEN LEAVE SIT FOR 1 MIN THEN ATTEMPT TO START THE VEHICAL

My car sometimes won't start. It acts like it is not getting any gas


Check to see if security light on dash is on after turning key to on/start position and letting dash lights run dianosis.(after 10 to 15 seconds). Pontiac uses a security theft system which shuts-down fuel injectors when a different key is used or the Body Control Module thinks the car is being stolen. Pontiac designed this so the owner would have to bring the vehicle back to the dealer. My Grand Am did this and it cost me alot, just to have the dealer reset it.( took them 5 min.) You may have to re-learn the pcm and bcm. It's the same as the dealer re-setting them. The proceedure is (1) turn the key to the on/start position and leave there for 12 minutes.
(2) turn the key to the off position for 30 seconds.
Repeat steps 3 times.
After that the car should start.

I know this is a hassle, but it's a lot cheaper than taking it to the dealer. Hope this helps.
