It is possible that it is the selector switch for the automatic transmission. The switch is either mounted to the side of the gearbox and sits with the selector cable or is mounted in the center console by the gearshift. it is possible that the switch may only need adjustment. Check the power supply at the switch and adjust to start.
If you have no electric power to the dash when you put the contact on, then check the earth cables.
Hope this helps.

2000 Land Rover Discovery 2 hard to start during this winter season


Aside from building a garage or installing an engine block heater I have used this trick in the past on my 98 RR HSE. It may work for you if the starting issue is simply temperature related. Placing a shop-light or shielded work light underneath your block at night will produce just enough heat in many cases to overcome the slow starting problem.
Other possibilities may be under powered/weak battery. The rovers are known for high cranking amp demand and a weak or mismatched battery could certainly cause this problem. On the outside chance that it may be fuel delivery related you might try priming your fuel injection prior to cranking. Do this by turning key to position 2 (or last position before crank) wait til all the bells and whistles stop usually about 3-5 seconds, and repeat a couple times. If this is helpful, the bad news is it may be indicative of mechanical issues on the horizon.
****SAFETY NOTE***** PAY ATTENTION TO LIGHT PLACEMENT MAKING SURE NOT TO PUT IT IN PATH OF OIL LEAKS.
Hope this helps.

Engine cut out while driving. Would turn over, no start.


If it were mine, I would check to see that there is fuel to the engine and the ignition system is working.

2002 LandRover Freelander HSE- Turns but doesn't start/fire up


It does sound like electrical problems. When it does this you need to know is it not getting fire, fuel or both. The alarm could be a problem, engine control, or a simple ground strap loose. Make sure you battery terminals are clean and connections are tight. The last time i saw this happen it turned out to be a wiring issue because someone had tapped into the factory alarm harness and the wiring was done very poorly which was causing the problem.
