Question about Land Rover LR3

3 Answers

I am deployed, so this is for my wife...She described it like this: emergency flashers started flashing as she intered the neighborhood, then a few seconds later almost all the fault lights came on. Turning the ignition off did not stop the flashers as they continued for a few minutes. Now the car won't start even though lights and warnings come on, it won't make any noise like its trying to start. Thank You for your time to help!

    the Battery cover was blistered and there was fluid on the battery cables.

    Thsi seems the most logical, and my wife is having the car towed to the dealer.

Sounds like a short somewhere is causing the anti-theft system to arm . Have you tried locking the doors manually then unlocking with the key? Other easy option could be to try a hard reset by pulling the battery terminal off for a few minutes.

If that doesnt do it you´ll most probably have got an electrical issue that needs to be traced at an authorized dealer.

Hi,

Please ask her to verify few things.

If it is a petrol landrover it needs 3 things, fuel, compression, spark. Not starting will be one of these missing so need to check that each is present starting with the easiest first - fuel and spark.. the absence of one of these is specific to the model of landrover so too long to go into here. The answer can go on in that you may have all three but the fuel air mixture is wrong or the spark occurs at the wrong time. but the above 3 are always a start point. A diesel requires fuel and compression but again the latter part of the petrol answer also applies.

If it is a crank, no start, we have to determine what's missing when it dies, fuel or spark. What you can do spray some carburetor cleaner into the intake while someone tries to start it. If it runs then you know you have a fuel problem. Probably a fuel pump.
If it doesn't fire, take an old spark plug and plug one of the ignition wires into it and lay it on a metal part of the engine. Crank it over and if there is no spark, you have an ignition problem. Maybe a bad ignition coil or ignition module.
In the event it is a no crank we need to see if there is power getting to the starter. With a test light check for power at the small terminal on the starter. The test light should light when the key is in the START position. If not then you probably have a bad Neutral Safety Switch or ignition switch.

This is an alarm fault. Aftermarket or factory installed. The brain is defective. Usually after hitting a pothole or speedbump this condition occurs.

There is no fix but to have the alarm module replaced at a dealership.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have no signal lights, left or right, on my 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. I was having a problem with a front bulb not contacting properly making the right signal flash rapidly. I left it flashing while


Check if your emergency flashers still work. You possibly need a new flasher. Some cars have separate flashers for turn signals and emergency flashers, but some they are both together. If your emergency flashers still operate leave them on and find the flasher (follow the clicking noise the flasher makes) and see if there is another flasher right next to it. swap with the emergency flasher and see if your turn signals work again. If so, replace the faulty flasher.

Turn signal will eluminate but not flash. emergancy lights work and flash fine. Have replaced the flasher and turn signal switch.


You know you have 2 flashers right, one for emergency flashers and one for signal lights? Does it refuse to flash on both sides, right and left? Have you checked all bulbs front and back are good?

Turning flasher dont work


You may want to expand and describe what you have looked at so far if anything, fuses, bulbs. It may very well be a blown fuse or the emergency flasher fuse needs replaced. If not, it may require replacing the turn signal indicator ring.

NOTE: This should only be done at a shop, since the airbag could be deployed accidently and cause injury. This job requires removing the steering wheel in order to replace the ring.

So go verify the fuses are good, and especially the Big Silver round one, That is the Emergency flasher fuse. Check your bulbs and connections. If not, then you know what your looking at. Depending on where in the country you are (or what country), as well as your vehicle, but this typically runs between 70 and 100 to replace that ring.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

VW Beetle 2002 turn signal lights doesn't come on at all and the emergency flasher lights only come on and flash if you hold the emergency flasher button down.


Replace Emergency Flasher Switch. This is an electronic switch and failures are common. Dealer part for best quality. Aftermarket parts work but have patchy quality.

Brake lights only show on center 3rd high stop tail lamp


Yes, the flasher does interrupt the brake signal. you do know that this is a push on, push off switch. Some try to pull this switch to turn off flashers, but, it has to be pushed again to turn off.

Changing emergency flasher switch


Disconnect the battery for 1 hour before you start and the air bag will be safe, be very careful when removing it, they are still an explosive device.

Turn signals do not blink all the time. sometimes they work. Turn signals don't work right. Sometimes blink a few times or not at all.


I just got a 2001 beetle and i had the same problem I changed out the emergency flasher which also is the turn signal relay and it fixed i got the part online and it costed $29.00 plus shipping i did it myself the switch just slides out it was a little hard getting it to plug back in but I got it in about 5 min of messing with it
