Question about 1997 Land Rover Discovery

2 Answers

Electric problems ok so i have a 1997 land rover discovery... when i drive the car for like 30 min i lose power completely. I took the rover to a shop and they said it was the alternator, so i replaced it. My battery is fully charged. Im still haing the same issue. It starts with a popping sound under the hood and then the stereo going out then the wipers get slow and next the light inside the car comes on. when the car stops it is completely dead, no power at all. is there something else that needs to be changed???

Your problem Is simple and easy.  Its the Positive and Negative Terminals that connect to your battery. I would bet the case Is that your Terminals are old POS that no longer conduct.  Hit your local auto parts store and buy some new Terminals.  Get something that Is a strong Conductor.  I suggest Brass.  Also Its Important to get the right size Terminal.  I would also put money on your Main Power Wires being real heavy gage that will not fit into a generic Terminal.  So make sure you get a terminal your gage of wire will easily fit into to avoid head ache and the hacking of your nice heavy gage Into lets say Civic gage to fit a too small terminal which mind your will work However you will have  less power weaker connections ultimately Find your self with a car that will not start.  It does not  hurt to also sand any white crude or rust that would further interupt your new connection,  Complete that and she be ready to fire up and hand you your next task.
Good Luck,

My rover turns completely shut off after a few mins of driving or when i stop, the engine dies


This problem is usually caused by a faulty ignition module (Rover calls them Ignition Amplifiers). Rover placed them on the side of the distributor, where they are subject to overheating, resulting in premature failure. They do offer a relocation kit that solves the problem - it is, like most things rover, pretty expensive.

The code P1451 on a Land Rover is "Leakage Detection Module Motor power stage error Drive cycle A:Signal out of range - above maximum". This is an OBD-II diagnostic system code.
