You can energise the interlock solenoid, by you give a positive (+12V) lead to the RED and a negative (ground) to the black line at the transmission selector's connector.
If it works you should check the positive signal at the red.
It should be there if the ignition is on, brake pedal depressed, and the transfer box is in some gear, and the fuse 1 isn't blown.
At the black cable should be a ground signal if the selector in 'P' position.
If you give me an e-mail address I'll send the wiring.

The ABS problem, you have better to check followings.
- All the wheels bearings' play.
- are the ABS sensors at the deepst position? Knock some to that head (not strong) and they shouldn't move deeper.

Check the distributor position when the engine is turned to TDC , the rotor should be facing close to no. 1 spark plug lead.Try spray some quick start spray in the inlet and see if it takes , if so then your fuel return is dumping too much fuel.The older pressure regulators were adjustable by a small screw next to the diaphragm.

SOURCE: 1999 land rover discovery series 1 does not hold charge.

Maybe, Terminals are old POS that no longer conduct.  Hit your local auto parts store and buy some new Terminals.  Get something that Is a strong Conductor.  I suggest Brass.  Also Its Important to get the right size Terminal.  I would also put money on your Main Power Wires being real heavy gage that will not fit into a generic Terminal.  So make sure you get a terminal your gage of wire will easily fit into to avoid head ache and the hacking of your nice heavy gage Into lets say Civic gage to fit a too small terminal which mind your will work However you will have  less power weaker connections ultimately Find your self with a car that will not start.  It does not  hurt to also sand any white crude or rust that would further interupt your new connection,  Complete that and she be ready to fire up and hand you your next task.
Good Luck,

SOURCE: Landrover discovery wont start but battery is good

This usually is the starter, especially if your truck has had an oil leak going for a while as the oil will run down into the starter and cause it to intermittenly fail. Also check your battery terminals and make sure you have a good connectivity.

I have a 1995 geo metro notice my dlr lights not working and the car wont star it wont even click or turn the motor all the fuses are fine and when turn the switch to on position engine light come on


head lights must come on, or the battery is dead.!!!
the head lights work key off. so that is first check, and first to fix.

when this happens you have a dead battery, (fuses good, and tested all fuse,in engine bay.
  1. the classic, jump start using jumper cables .
  2. charge the battery so it reads 12.6vdc rested
  3. try a known good battery in car, that works in another car.

easy, right?

My 1995 Cougar XR7 V8 4.6L will not start. When I turn the key, the ammeter pegs at 0, but nothing else happens. There is no click from anywhere under the hood. I have a brand new (6 weeks old)...


Check the fusible link between the battery and the fuse box under the hood. Just follow the positive battery cable towards the fuse box where it looks like there's a cable going in and a cable coming out. the cover slides up to access the fusible link. take off the two nuts with a 1/2 inch wrench, pull the cables off and remove the link. It should be marked as a 175 amp fuse. Run to the auto parts store to buy a replacement. reinstall. Good luck.

If the starter motor will not crank the engine over first check the battery to see if it is fully charged. A volt meter across the battery should read at least 12.6V. If you do not have a volt meter, turn the ignition key on and check the rate of the turn signal operation and check that the headlight high beams are bright as normal. If the rate of turn signal flashing and headlights are normal, chances are the battery is charged and the problem is else where.

If TS and HD Lights are not normal, fully charge the battery. Then with the head lights on try to start the car. If the head lights dimm or go out, you have a bad connection in the wiring going to the starter motor or a bad battery. Clean the battery terminals and try again. If NG, have the battery load tested.

If after charging the battery and the car starts normally, the question becomes, does the battery run down because of a draw in the system or because the alternator does not charge the battery while driving. You can take to car, it is now running right? To any number of auto parts stores and they will check the battery and charging system for you in the hopes of selling parts.

If the battery and alternator check out, the battery is most likely being depleted over time by some accessory in the car pulling power when it should not be. This can be quickly checked by putting an amp meter in series with one of the batter terminals. It will show the rate of draw in AMPS that is the problem. Finding that problem is a process of elimination ( say by pulling fuses) until the problem goes away then examining the circuit that the problem occurred in. Most times it is the interior lights.

Good Luck!

Re: engine won't turn over


to turn over the starter motor you require a lot of current . If the battery has a partial charge the accessories may work but the Car starter motor won't turn over. However you should hear a click from the starter motor soleniod.
If you hear no click when you turn the key to start the car might have an immobilizer that is stopping the car from starting ?
