Question about 2004 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

Fan noise upon starting.

I hear a high pitch fan noise upon starting up my 2004 Land Rover Discovery. After a few minutes, it stops. Is this related to the Assister or Viscous fans? Is it normal..I'm a relatively new owner. - Thanks

    Thanks for the quick response Jim. It's not a slipping sound from the fan belts. It's actually a fan running. It sounds like a high rpm fan running for a minute or two, then slows down. -Ryan

It could be the belts that are slipping on initial start-up. When the belts are cold, they will slip if the belt(s) are loose. It could also be the tensionoer pully. This is not normal for any vehicle under any circumstances. Good Luck Jim

    It sounds like an accessory pully bearing on one of the various items on your engine such as power steering, air conditioning or a tensioner. Good luck, Jim

I have just purchased a 2004 Land Rover Discovery. My Cooling fan continues running after car is turned off. Is this normal?

This is normal. If the coolant is warm, the cooling fan continues to run until it's brought down to an acceptable temperature.

Suggested Solution 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II Logo Problem with 2002 Discovery Series II Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start 2002 land rover discovery, starts fine...

The ignition system is controlled by the ECM. Check power at fuse box in on right side under dash. Check fuses right side engine compartmentlower dash panel if all OK check power to ECM located right side "A" pillar in alloy box. this unit could be faulty if no spark at coils, assuming they have been connected correctly. may have to get tested for codes at L/R dealer or someone with test tool. Another source of problem may well be flat battery in transponder key. The indicator light on the dash willflash rapidly for 10 seconds if the vehicle has been unlocked with the remote and the drivers door is opened if the battery in remote is getting low

When I turn on my air conditioned Land Rover Discovery Series 2 2001, does not turn on the fan that is in the front of the radiator

Disconnect the plugin wires to rad. fan and test for voltage to plug. Using an ohmmeter, see if the fan connection is open. If open,replace motor.If no voltage, check fuse,relay, and wiring and possibly the switch for loss of power.While moving,the air passes through condensor to make it work but in traffic and at stop,not enough air to remove heat from condensor.

2004 land rover discovery, ignition clicking noise, panel lighted, engine not turn over, only clicking

it sounds like your starter motor is faulty. first make sure the battery is fully charged, then place a screwdriver between the contacts of the solenoid on the starter motor, if it again just clicks, then you need to repair or replace the starter motor.
hope this helps
