SOURCE: freelander wont start grrrr
This is really one of them that you can spend hundreds and still miss the problem. This is the order that things need to be checked. Start cheap first. But before anything, hook a fuel gauge to the fuel rail and let it run but keep and eye on the pressure. Any eratic movements of the gauge would put the blame on the fuel pump of filter. And have the timing checked. with high miles will need new timing belt. It wouldnt hurt to have a compression test done too. Also is there exhaust coming from the tail pipe adiquitly if not then your catalytic converter is stoped up or about to.
This list does not mean go buy all that. Its just check points for now.
1 air cleaner
2 fuel filter
3 PCV valve
4 throttle sensor.
5 crank and cam sensors
6 MASS airflow sensor
7 spark plug and wires.
sorry for the long to do list but like i said this is one of them probs that could be many things.

I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

Does the starting solenoid engages? This is would sound like a deep clunk on your starter. When the solenoid engages it close the contact that energize the starter motor, but a worn contact on the solenoid would result in it engaging but not having enough current to turn the engine resulting in a clunking noise when you try to start.
The starter solenoid gets its 12 volt from a relay. This is referred to as the starter relay. If you try to crank, and you hear only a click but the starter do not turn, then the contacts on the relay maybe worn.
To sum it up, if you hear a loud clunk when it dont crank, its the starter solenoid. If you hear just a click but no crank, it could be the starter relay.

It sounds like this could be an immobilizer problem, if the red alarm LED is permanently on when you have the ignition is on this is defiantly the problem. You will need to get the key/fob reprogrammed to overcome this.
