Question about 2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II

2001 LR Disco seems to have electrical issue

Hi. My 2001 Disco has its service engine light on. Worked with a former LR tech in the area. He got a huge fault list and recommended replacing the mass air flow sensor based on his experience.

We did that, but the light came right back on ($200). Next took it to dealer, who noticed a fried fuse and a bent pin on the MAF sensor connector. Repaired both, sent it home. Next day, problem recurred ($200 more).

Currently fuse 2 and fuse 5 in the engine compartment box are out. Fuse 2 (15A) connects to the MAF sensor, air injection valve, purge control valve, camshaft position sensor, and each of those connect to the ECM (explains the long fault list!). Fuse 5 (40A) goes to the motor cooling fan only. (Bought the circuit diagrams. $14. :-)

So this seems like there's got to be an electrical short, right? Advice on how to pinpoint it??

I did notice one of the black plastic "conduit" tubes adjacent to the top of the motor has cracked and come apart, exposing the wiring, but didn't see any fraying there.

Thanks in advance for any troubleshooting advice!

I have a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. A mechanic worked on it recently to fix electrical problems with the power window. Before the mechanic worked on the truck the Air Conditioner worked great. Now...


What engine does your 2500 HD have? Is it a 6.6 diesel, a 6.0 gas, or an 8.1 gas engine? If it's a gas engine, the A/C compressor belt may have snapped (common). The gas engines used a separate, smaller belt to drive the compressor, while the larger serpentine belt runs the rest of the accessories. Diesel engines only have one belt that runs all accessories, including the A/C compressor.

I have a 2001 chrysler voyager with a 2.4l engine. it cranks but no start. no check engine light


From a(Retired Chrysler Tech) If prior to changing the T-stat & belts you were experincing a no start,Then afterward it started & ran fine until you again worked in the same area as before, The first thing I would do is to check any and all electrical "wiring" and or sensors & switches in that same area, If your vehicle is equiped with a crankshaft sensor it may be at the front of the engine in close proximity to the harmonic balancer,"crankshaft pully"& the wiring my be routed as to be easily moved while working in the belt area..pay close attention to the condition of the wiring. any wires that are exposed(bare) must be repaired or replaced. check for loose plugs at sensors. Be meticulous in your search, the smallest thing will create a no start in this type of set up.
