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.

SOURCE: 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.

the remote may have come un-synchronised. (Due to a heavy knock or interference from a radio transmitter source. Like someones speed radar detector, or when the battery went flat.)

Consult your dealer on the synchronising process. This is an involved process but easy enough to do yourself at home!

Hi there. when jump starting a car you are supposed to put the earth lead on a metal part (engine block or gearbox) so i dont think you have done any damage..
good quality jump leads are what is needed ( thick ones)

if you have a battery charger then that would be best depending on the ampage might need charging for 24hrs at least..

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
