Question about 1999 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Land Rover Discovery. The Drivers door will not open unless you turn the key in the lock to push up on the lock. Same inside, to get out I need to pull up on the lock knob and pull on the Handel to open. Is this the lock actuator going bad? They are over $100 to replace so I want some asurance this will fix the problem before I buy a new one.

I would check the lock assembly first looking for worn and loose parts.

My security system came on my locked Discovery. Battery went dead, and my key will not unlock drivers door. How do I get in?

The key will unlock the door using the keyhole and turning the key! This is the fail safe for when there is a flat battery......this does not require any battery power whatsoever! I have used this method with the battery disconnected and locked and unlocked the doors!

How to replace drivers side actuator on 03 land rover discovery

Unhook battery
Remove door card torx and Phillips needed
the window frame needs to come out to get clearance
remove the lock bolts in side of door (torx very tight) unplug the loom from the lock and unhook the rod from the inside pull handle
once done the actuator comes out leaving the lock barrel clipped to the door - replace in reverse expecting it to take a while and don't break the plastic clips holding in the actuator rods or they will fall out down the line...

NAS 2004 Land Rover Discovery Door locking problem.

this is actually the internal DC motor which comes inside the door latch. Land Rover doesn't sell it separately. You need to buy the whole door latch to have this problem sorted out. or else you can buy the DC motor from me as I made a special order from a factory for those DC motors as they are common fault in most of new Land rover generation. each motor costs you $30 +shipping Regards..

I haveLand Discovery I and the driver side passenger door and the rear door want open unless I open with a key or pull the lock up manually. Please help

There is a little spring in the door lock itself that is broken. You can order the spring for a few $$$ from a few Land Rover on0line specialty shops. Its a big job to replace though as you have to remove the window regulator, And window glass & Frame to get to the lock to replace or fix it. Not much of an option though. I just spent 4-hrs tearing mine apart. I'll put it back together tomorrow AM.

Try to use the key to open the passenger door and then check the side of the door if there is a safety lock for children.
