Question about 2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II

(Land Rover Headlights Fail in Cold Weather)

From North Texas: Last year we had a cold winter, and the headlights would take a few seconds to come on. Until that time, my vehicle was garage kept. This year, the winter is not as cold, and my vehicle is back in the garage and the problem started up again yesterday. Only this time it took several minutes for the headlights to come on. Even toggling the brights didn't work.

Sounds like a bad headlight Relay. If you have an Owners Manual you can look up the correct Relay in the Powerbox. You may find that Autozone,com has chassis and fusebox diagrams. Register for FREE on their site and then you can toggle down to diagrams and print or view what you need.

Please check the a/c compressor clutch; it may be not working. FYI the compressor does not run all the time. It is the clutch that will cycle on and off to maintain a/c circuit pressure. To check, put the a/c on high and watch the compressor under the hood to see if it cycles.

You have to release tension at the tensioner pulley. Lisle tools makes a good wrench for this as clearance is tight.

Why do the headlights work all winter when it's cold and dry, but as soon as it warms up and gets damp, they stop?

There are grounds for the ehadlights. I don't know exactly where they are, but one of the wires from the headlight connector shold got straight to the body or frame. A bad ground can cause such problems. There shold also be a headlight relay. You might want to change that as well, or at least get a can of spray electric contact cleaner from the auto parts store, pull the relay, spray the contacts on it and spray into the socket. Check the headlight fuse also -- change and spray contact cleaner in the socket.

Fuel shut off p2187

how cold -39F? like my last poster? (far north in canada)
nobody ever posts location, so can't even guess that.
cold to my wife is 68F.
to my car -40F.(or -40C)

1: check all fuses.?
2: fresh fuel, not a winter car , stored all summer >??
3: ever do the 60k mile tuneup ever? or the 120k or the 180K? as mileage dictates?

This car has EFI and as such, starts in cold weather , super well, like no other
system , ever did (carbs) it knows how to set fuel rates based
on true temperatures, the evaporation rate of fuel is very poor
and very cold weather, so goes very very rich to do that.

my wild guess, is the spark plugs are shot. never checked, or serviced ever... just a guess.

1-The charge on my battery finished, and i replaced to another brain new. Know i can not start the engine, everything work but not the engine . i would like to know what is the possible cause?

This is a very, very common issue.
There are two parts to a car battery,
The first part is common to all vehicles, they are 12 volt batteries. The 12 volts are standard for all of the electrical equipment on the vehicle. ( headlights, stereo, brake lights, etc )

The second part is the amps, also refered to as, " cold craking amps ", it is the amps that start your engine, not the 12 volts.

Two batteries, side by side, identical in every way except one has 500 cold craking amps, and the other has 700 cold cranking amps.

The 550 cranking amps may start a 4 cylinder engine, but it's very unlikely that it's powerful enough to start a 6 cylinder engine, especially if it's cold outside. However, the 700 cranking amps should start a 6 cylinder with out any problems.

You very likely have a battery that doesn't meet the vehicles, " minimum cold cranking amps requirement ."

I am sorry for the long explaination, but, many people are having the same issues, and because this is likely going to be viewed by other users I am hoping that they will start looking more at the " cold cranking amps " rating, before thay buy a battery that isn't powerful enough to start their car, especially in cold weather.

I hope this helps you.
