Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

Borrowed my 2002 freelander to my buddy today. When he got into it it wouldn't start. Had to jump it, and now my radio wants a securety key. Also each time I shut it off I have to jump it again. Any ideas about why it needs to be jumped each time?

HAve your battery load tested, check all terminals, clean and tight. If batt fails fully charge (takes hours) and retest battery. Be sure to look for battery draws when unit is shut down.

I have 2002 land rover freelander i turn key and it clicks so jump start the car and it worked for about a week, now i turn the key and no sound but battery seems to be working fine i had it checked out at...

Not sure what you had checked out at Autozone, but if you're not getting the engine to "turn over" and instead get starter "clicking" AND it works with a jumper... sounds like you need a battery. Get yourself a battery and make sure you get the proper battery size/type for your vehicle (do not use the info on the batter you have in vehicle now) Go to a place like Sams Club or Costco and have them look up your battery type. You might be surprised that that's all there is to it. Oh, one more thing... this could be a problem if you have loose or corroded battery connectors.

Get a new battery, or boost your battery with booster cables by hooking it up to another car that is running.

2002 Freelander, all electrical died, jumping battery didn't work

Most likely right.... if the alternator quits you can often run off the battery but once you start accessories like wipers . heater etc it will not last long

Freelander TD4 2002 Ingition just clicks, battery is fine worked with no issue yesterday....Any Ideas ??

I had this problem on my wife's 2001 Freelander and it ended up being a loose battery terminal.  There was plenty of electricity to run lights, radio and so forth.  When the starter solenoid kicked in you could hear it click, but the loose terminal couldn't carry enough power to turn the starter motor.  Battery was fine in all respects and when I tightened the terminal, everything worked like it's supposed to.
