Ugh.... Goes without saying, you have a short somewhere, aka Rover Electrical Gremlin. Could be anywhere in the chain of ignition components. The one and only similar experience I've had led me to the starter. The way that it is positioned and the contact nuts being so close to the body that I believe the full power of the battery supply has enough current to jump this bridge of as little as. 4-5mm and cause an arc. (From the factory the starter comes with a protective rubber boot to prevent this.) Crawl under there (after disconnecting the battery) loosen the nuts on the posts of the starter and tighten them down after you position them in such a way that the cable and any metal on the connector or wire is as far from other metal of the body. If your preotective boot is gone then you need to insulate the positive contact somehow. Tape isn't going to do it, but liquid electrical tape will work or the rubber boot off of an old set of ignition wires could be modified with a bit of enginuity. Remeber to disconnect the negative lead off of the battery before doing ANY electric troubleshooting on a Rover. If by chance you were working on your starter and did not do this, you're in luck, a wrench to the live starter will blow a fuse everytime and this is where your problem would likely be. Good luck, hope this helps. Repost any additional info or questions and ill do my best to help

SOURCE: 1996 4.0 Range Rover won't unlock

This car is in super lock mode... when you press remote 2times to lock or when you lock with remote and try to unlock using key manually.

there is a 4 digit number to open the door, its like opening a safe, starting from the left(key in car door) it goes L/R/L/R. so if number code is 1234..... left 1, right 2, left 3, right 4.

or if this too troublesome you can ask landrover dealer to remove the KEYCODE.

happy trying.....

Unfortunately I believe that will require a trip to the dealer, and a hefty price tag to go with it. Most dealers refuse to let anyone else handle their security systems. And most keys have the alarm keypad built in making it even more dealer specific. I wish I could give better news.

make sure you disconect the battery or the computer still reads that the circuit is open and will fry a perfectly good coil. I had the same issue and had to do a second time. Disconected the battery and now no problems.

My 99 range rover will not turn over after starter replacement, but the starter is good.

Are you getting power to the start terminal on the starter? Use a test light or meter and hook up to the wire on the starter that powers up the solenoid . No power start working backwards. check your ignition switch and see if power comes out in the crank mode. Make sure you have not tripped the security system. Close all doors and windows/hood. Cycle the locks with the remote of with the key in the driver door lock. This will eliminate the alarm unless there is a problem with it.

I cannot get into my Range Rover HSE as the battery is out of power

You might be able to get under the car and connect jumper cables to the starter to charge the battery. Anything bigger than 12 gauge wire would do it.

Engine will not crank over when vehicle sets for extended period of time (5-6 hours), but will start when jumpers are hooked directly to starter? *already installed 694 cranking amp battery and grounded...

If battery is new, and altenator test good which would mean your battery is getting charged, then check the igntion wire that goes to the solenoid. They can get loose, broken, or dirty connections.
Check your battery cable connections on battery and on starter and ground to make sure they are very clean as well as tight.

95 jeep cherokee not starting

Check the small wire on the starter to see if you are getting 12v there with the key turned. If you are, then it is possible that the starter (&or solenoid) that checked out good last year is not good now. If no power at small wire, then check neutral safety switch.
