Question about 1997 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

My td5 disco has intermittant starting problems

Will start first time in the morning but after a short trip will just turn over, flick the key a few times and it will start.
I have fit a new fuel pump and ignition switch and it is no better.
Now it will not to turn over when you turn the key but ignition lights are coming on if you turn the key on and off a few times it will start but it's getting worse.

    starter motor bolts had come loose setting off noisy crankshaft sensor and stopping ignition.

    over cranking had damaged the starter relay.

    problem all cured now.

    Nice to know you have got it fixed,makes one feel better if someone says thanks ,evan if i have got it wrong yet again.Trying to advise from a distance is difficult,its not the same as driving round to someones house ,sticking nose under bonnet and hearing the noise because i would have found it straight away.Repairing motors is very much a hands on thing,you need to hear it or see it ,hit it with a hammer ,swear at it then kick it into touch and it works again .

Have a 99 disco....I had to take the gear selection control box, underneath the center consol. There isa switch that came loose that interfaces with the brake and ignition to start the car. Also there is a selenoid in the box that could go bad. also could be a bad brake switch. Try pushing the gear shift foward in park while cranking, if it cranks then the gear selection switch is bad. The problem is between the key switch and the starter....trace it down. Also you can buy cheap a LR repair disc.

Your car is fuel injected and has a fuel pressure regulator valve that allows fuel to return to the tank, one sure sign that the valve is bad is that it allows all the fuel pressure to return to the tank so you must crank and crank which in truth is not what gets it going. You attempting to start it multiple times is turning the fuel pump on for @ 30 seconds. Untill you have the valve tested try turning the key to on, when the pump stops running (whirring or light buzzing sound) turn the key off and back on again. After a few times the pressure should be built up enough to start the engine.

In my opinion it is caused by having too little gas in the tank. You are not suppose to run it it with that little gas anyways because it is bad for your car since all the contaminants can be sucked into the injectors and cause all kinds of problem.

Sporadic issue with not starting.


Your problem could be your starter relay. It could be internally damaged and causing the intermittent problem. Look in the junction box under the hood for it. If you have your factory manual,it will tell you the exact position of the relay.
