Question about 2004 Land Rover FreeLander

1 Answer

Freelander won't start

I only have 14,000 miles on the car. I started having problems with starting it about two months ago, but after turning the key off and starting again it always started. Until last week. It just died on me last week, it won't start. I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific, no LR service here, so I towed it to the MB dealer. They changed the cranker sensor and it starts intermittenly now. They said just keep trying it eventually will start. Anyone else with similar problem?

This sounds like the starter has gone out. It usually doesn't happen this early on but it all depends on how often it is used. The best thing to do would be to take it out and take it to your local parts store and see if they can run a "bench" test on it to see if it is any good! If you go to start it and you don't hear it clicking or ticking when you turn the key that is a sure sign it went bad. If you do hear that then you may have a problem with the ignition itself! Hope this is of some help!


Have a good one!

2002 LandRover Freelander HSE- Turns but doesn't start/fire up


It does sound like electrical problems. When it does this you need to know is it not getting fire, fuel or both. The alarm could be a problem, engine control, or a simple ground strap loose. Make sure you battery terminals are clean and connections are tight. The last time i saw this happen it turned out to be a wiring issue because someone had tapped into the factory alarm harness and the wiring was done very poorly which was causing the problem.

Freelander wont start


it's a starter motor problem, the solenoid contact inside the starter
is dirty give it a good cleanup with a sand paper and it should be fine. I have the same starting problem, I just cleanup the copper contacts and presto! starts in one click. or you can buy a starter
copper contact from under $12 from ebayUK go to freelander starter motor.

Freelander wont start grrrr


This is really one of them that you can spend hundreds and still miss the problem. This is the order that things need to be checked. Start cheap first. But before anything, hook a fuel gauge to the fuel rail and let it run but keep and eye on the pressure. Any eratic movements of the gauge would put the blame on the fuel pump of filter. And have the timing checked. with high miles will need new timing belt. It wouldnt hurt to have a compression test done too. Also is there exhaust coming from the tail pipe adiquitly if not then your catalytic converter is stoped up or about to.

This list does not mean go buy all that. Its just check points for now.


1 air cleaner
2 fuel filter
3 PCV valve
4 throttle sensor.
5 crank and cam sensors
6 MASS airflow sensor
7 spark plug and wires.

sorry for the long to do list but like i said this is one of them probs that could be many things.
