Question about 1996 Land Rover Range Rover

1 Answer

My range rover 1996 model with a milage of 55000km, gave me a problem of the engine stopping to run after starting and running for 15min, when it stops running the car can not be started again until after 30min at times until the following day. I wonder what can be the problem please help me I like my car. Resently I took it to the experts who deal with the range rover and I was told everything seems to be fine on wires apart from the key that shows a problem on the computer.

    Does it mean that if it is a bad connection on the ECM the car will cut every 15 munites from the time of running the engine? (2) The expert also tested if there is any power being supplied to the engine and there was non that was showing how ever the ignition key was able toput the desh board lights on and the engine did not crank when he tried to crank it. After waiting for 30 munites the car started again and cut off after 15 munites as if it was timed.

    Does it mean that a bad ECM connection cuts off the engine by cutting the power to the engine only for 15 minutes and then starts after 30minutes or the following day.

If they told you the actual error codes you would have gotten a more precise idea what went wrong and why. Without them all i can do is to make an educated deduction: from what you described that looks like a bad connection on the ECM so their diagnostic appears correct.

    From what you describe it appears that the power coming from the key doesn't reaches the ECM . This also explains why the power appears and disappears - the contact is lost at a plug connection that moves when it heats up = the defect is in the wiring harness between the key hub and the ECM, that is located in the dash.
    The instrument panel must be remove and th wiring accessed and fully tested.

Replace the wheel cylinder on the wheel where you see it leaking then bleed brake system you ought to be ok on your brakes. As for the sun roof sounds like part of the track system is stripped happens all the time on automatic shoulder belts you can hear the motor running but no movement.

The fuel system is a drive by wire and there is no accellerator cable.Check the plug going into the injector pump and clean,there is probably water here stopping the correct voltage to the throttle pump spool.
