Question about 2008 Land Rover LR2

1 Answer

Have a 2008 Land Rover LR2. The temp gauge shoots irratically high and the overheat light comes on. And then it will go back to normal temp after I turn the heat all the way up. While this should help dissipate heat from the engine...it happens too quickly...the needle jumps up and down too quickly. Sensor? Thermostate? Falty gauge?

    C.Leno,
    I have this same problem. Toldit was probably a hose leak or reservoir leak. $700 job. Did you eveer get an answer?

    Never did get an answer, but after a few days of trying to replicate the problem the mechanics suggested a new radiator cap. Said the radiator was losing pressure. Cost $20. That was 2 weeks ago and it hasn't happened since. Thanks for your response!

SOURCE: my seats just died on my new LR2

there are connectors on the back side of the switch panel on the bottom side of the seat, but the plastic trim panel is a pain to take off. you can check to see that all is still plugged in and nothing came unplugged accidentally. odds are that your module will need to have some updated software downloaded by the dealer. i feel your pain though, i was one of many of land rover's technician layoffs!

The radio codes are only available from the dealer, you will need to goto your nearest dealer with your registration, they will type your vin# in there system and give you the code.
hope this helps

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

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.
