97 ranger rover 4.6

Came back from vacation and started my range rover, drove just fine. Parked it back in my garage, turned if off and tried to turn it back on to move it again and it wont turn over. It seems like it is right there and wants to turn over but it wont. Replaced fuel filter thinking that might be the problem but got nothing. The lights dim when it tries to turn over but it just wont. Please help!!

Check the battery voltage. At rest it should be 12 to 13 volts.
Cranking should not drop below 10 to 10.5 volts.

My 97 intrepid will start up, but putter out within seconds

Map Sensor or Crank Sensor. If you have a code reader the map sensor should throw a code, the crank sensor most often will not. Both will cause the car to start, idle to around 1,000 R's and then die.

I Have a Range Rover 97 4.5 HSE. The Brakes were working fine then I was sat in a trafic jam for 2 hours, as I started to move again, the ABS BRAKE and TC lights all came on and the brake pedal goes down...

First thing to do is check the brake fluid and be sure it is full. Next look under the vehicle and make sure you do not have fluid leaking on the ground or on the inside of a tire. The problem may be the booster but make sure there is no leaks in the system before you drive it.

One way to check the fuel pump is to turn the ignition to on and listen for the pump to run. It should run for a few seconds. It may be a couple of seconds after you turn the ignition to on before it runs. Normally you can do this repeated times.

If you don't hear the pump run that is most probably the problem.

My guess is that you have either a bad contact in the wiring or the ECM detects a fault and prevents the engine from starting. The only way to know for sure (apart checking the entire wire loom starting with the key switch) is to have the error code read. Do that ASAP, running the engine with a fault can't be very good for it.

97 cavalier started fine drove it , parked it came back starter would not turn over,coasted it and it started will not start now.thanks car is a manual trans.

You probably have a bad connection at the battery or at the starter. Clean all connections & attempt to restart. You may also have a problem with the starter in which case remove & replace. Good luck!

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.

You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)
